Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Listen to an Extended Remix of the Catchiest Theme Song Ever

Originally posted 03/09/2015 10:20AM

If you spent the weekend binge-watching Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, there's an excellent chance that the theme song has burrowed its way into your brain.

For the uninitiated, the theme song is a play on the viral phenomenon that was Antoine Dodson's "Bed Intruder" song – you know, "Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife."

Following the rescue of the Indiana Mole Women (including Ellie Kemper's Kimmy Schmidt) from the underground bunker in which they lived, the reaction of a man named Walter Bankston (Mike Britt) was taped on the local news.

When it comes to Ellie Kemper, Tina Fey is a big fan.

"She's just delightful," Fey tells PEOPLE of the actress who stars in her new Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. "She is so intelligent and energetic and adorable."

In Kimmy Schmidt (on Netflix now), Kemper plays the eponymous twentysomething woman who starts a new life in New York after escaping a doomsday cult.

"I think she is so likable and warm and skilled that I hope people really enjoy watching her," says Fey, 44, who created the show with fellow 30 Rock executive producer Robert Carlock.

Originally posted 03/03/2015 05:45PM

Ellie Kemper has plenty of experience playing polite characters, and the former star of The Office follows the same philosophy when it comes to her personal life.

"It drives me crazy when people don't have good manners," Kemper, 34, tells PEOPLE. "I think it's inexcusable."

But that's not all the actress – who stars in Tina Fey's latest comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt doesn't like.

House of Cards: Season 3 of Netflix Original Series Accidentally Put Online 2 Weeks Early

Originally posted 02/12/2015 09:10AM

Workplaces across the nation ground to a halt for a thrilling half hour on Wednesday.

Sometime around 4:30 p.m. ET, season 3 of Netflix's House of Cards was put online a full two weeks ahead of its release date.

Netflix has taken the error – which many of the Twitterverse believe to have been a publicity stunt – in stride.

"Due to a technical glitch some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak," said a Netflix rep in a statement to PEOPLE. "He'll be back on Netflix on Feb 27. #nospoilers."

"This is Washington," read a Tweet from the official House of Cards Twitter. "There's always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27."

Netflix's latest series may be set at a sun-drenched resort, but it sure does look dark.

Kyle Chandler stars as John Rayburn, who is a detective with the Monroe County Sheriff's office in the Florida Keys when his older brother Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) returns and throws the Rayburns' lives into disarray.

"Sometimes you know something's coming," John says over the increasingly uneasy trailer. "You feel it in the air. You don't sleep at night. The voice in your head's telling you that something's going to go terribly wrong, and there's nothing you can do to stop it."

Candy for Dinner Is Just One Delight in Tina Fey's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Trailer

[YOUTUBE "mNKEKlXY3Z4"] Netflix released the trailer for its upcoming Tina Fey comedy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and it's as winsome and weird as you might expect.

Kimmy stars Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids) in the title role as a 20-something liberated from a doomsday cult who learns that the apocalypse never actually happened and her entire life was based on lies.

Fey's 30 Rock partner in comedy, Robert Carlock, is also behind the series, so it's no surprise a few familiar faces pop up among the eclectic oddballs Kimmy meets when she moves to New York, finds housing with a Times Square robot performer named Titus (Tituss Burgess) and lands a job nannying for high-strung, self-absorbed working mother Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski, playing to her strengths).
