New Tina Fey-created sitcom headed to Netflix

NEW YORK (AP) — Netflix has picked up two seasons of a new sitcom from Tina Fey.

Titled "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," it focuses on a woman who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York. It was co-created by Fey and Robert Carlock, who collaborated on "30 Rock."

It stars Ellie Kemper of "The Office." Fey isn't scheduled to appear in the series.

Netflix says the 13-episode first season will premiere in March.

The series had originally been bound for NBC, but that network passed. Universal Television, NBC's corporate sibling, will remain the show's producer.
