30 Rock coming to OMNI in September

Fall just got a whole lot funnier. For the first time on Canadian television, viewers can catch favourite episodes from the first five seasons of the award-winning, critically-acclaimed 30 Rock all over again, when the sitcom debuts in strip five nights a week on OMNI Television.

30 Rock will air in strip beginning Monday, Sept. 19 at 10pm PT on OMNI BC and Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10pm ET/MT on OMNI 1 and OMNI AB before moving to a full Monday-Friday10pm ET/MT schedule on Sept. 26.

It won’t be long before the cast reunites for more chaotic adventures. Beginning mid-season, catch all-new laughs when Liz Lemon and the gang return for a spectacular sixth season on Citytv.

In the meantime, the wait is over to watch classic scenes, such as when Jack and Avery have their baby while trapped in Canada or Matt Damon as Liz’s pilot boyfriend, when OMNI brings back the first five side-spitting seasons.

Multiple award-winning comedy series 30 Rock is told through the comedic voice of Emmy and Golden Globe ® winner Tina Fey as variety show producer Liz Lemon.

It features Emmy and three-time Golden Globe winner Alec Baldwin as top network executive Jack Donaghy and Emmy-nominee Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable star of Lemon’s hit variety show, TGS with Tracy Jordan.

Lemon constantly has her hands full, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life.

Also rounding out the cast are two-time Emmy nominee Jane Krakowski as Jenna Maroney, the co-star of TGS; Scott Adsit as the variety show’s producer Pete Hornberger; Emmy nominee Jack McBrayer as Kenneth, the over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC page; Judah Friedlander as Frank, the sardonic slacker on the writing staff; and Keith Powell as Toofer, the sophisticated yet sarcastic, Harvard-alum writer.

30 Rock garnered 13 Emmy nominations, including its fifth consecutive nod in the “Outstanding Comedy Series” category. The critically-acclaimed series has won the coveted honor three times in that category and also stands as the TV Academy’s all-time, single-awards-year-nomination record holder for a comedy series with its 2009 tally of 22. The show’s 2008 haul of seven statuettes earned 30 Rock a place in the comedy series record books.
