ABOUT THE BOOK
If Tina Fey is the mother of 30 Rock, Lorne Michaels, the creator and executive producer of Saturday Night Live, is the shows father. In Feys eighth season at SNL, Michaels prodded her to do a development deal for a sitcom. Tina consequently brainstormed the narrative of a television producer who works for the show of a right-wing pontificator, a role Fey had already written for Alec Baldwin.
Kevin Reilly, NBC president of Primetime Development, sent Tina back to the drawing board with the suggestion that she incorporate elements of her own life into her show. Tina then created a story of a late-night comedy show, in which she would play the head writer, Tracy Morgan would play the role of the star, and Alec Baldwin, naturally, as the boss.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
If there is onemaybe twooverarching, profound themes to the apparently absurdist plotlines of the episodes of the third season of 30 Rock, one would be hard-pressed to find them. But lets give it a try, since after all, there must be some kind of glue which holds together this comedic cauldron of seething jealousy (Jenna, of everyone), control freak-exertion (Jack, over Tina, and Tinas futile efforts over Tracy and Jenna), and sexual tension.
No one in the cast seems to be attracted to anyone else, since that would be incestuous. But cast members do become extremely attracted to outsiders: Liz to Dr. Andrew Baird, played by the gorgeous Jon Hamm; Jack to Elisa Pedrera, played by the gorgeous Salma Hayek; Kenneth to the adorable, red-headed, blind girl played by the adorable, red-headed actress; and Jenna to the EMT who responds to an emergency call at TGSin the pursuit of whom she has no qualms in inducing anaphylactic shock in Kenneth. In a twist reminiscent of Isaac willingly (?) sacrificing himself at Abrahams hand, Kenneth courts death so that Jenna may re-encounter the EMT of her dreams.
