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.

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).
