Discussion About Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

  1. Abi

    I love that this script includes that one-page pitch at the end. This show is one of my all-time favorites, especially because it’s comedy at it’s most effective: hilarious and approachable, but completely real and upfront about really challenging issues. It’s always felt like a really difficult story to sell (if you’re not Tina Fey), and it was helpful to see how they communicated the concept.

      Great point, Abi. The final page is a valuable resource. It showcases how Fey and Carlock pitched the show and used other famous “fish out of water” projects to demonstrate successful precedents. Thanks for pointing that out!

    I think this script is a great read, not only for its entertainment value (the fact that it was originally called “Tooken” still makes me laugh), but as a learning tool as well. It deftly handles a number of themes of varying weight and somehow fits it all into three tight, dynamic acts.

    One of my favorite things about this script is that you can clearly map how Kimmy and Titus’ relationship grows in every scene and act; they go from total strangers to best friends in a logical track, which felt satisfying and promising.
