What's another weekend eaten up by a Netflix binge? Your laundry can wait.
The streaming service's newest offering, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, is a comedy created by 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Robert Carlock – and it's about to become your new favorite thing.
Kimmy Schmidt was first given a straight-to-series order by NBC, and we have to wonder why they would have sold the show to Netflix when it is actual solid gold. However, their loss is our binge-watching gain. Here are some reasons you need to tune in.

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.

[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).

Fear not, 30 Rock fans, Tiny Fey is creating a new comedy series that is likely to satisfy the craving for her special brand of humor.
The upcoming show, which so far does not have a name, will star Ellie Kemper of The Office as a woman who seeks a fresh start in New York City after escaping from a doomsday cult.
NBC has ordered 13 episodes of the series created by Fey, 43, and Robert Carlock, who was an executive producer of 30 Rock.
