Even as the contenders are coming on strong, with Amazon and uh, Overstock, planning big things in 2015, Netflix certainly doesn’t have to worry just yet about their customers going elsewhere. According to their just released fourth quarter earnings report, they added 13 million subscribers worldwide in 2014. That’s the size of a small country, and those numbers are due in part to Netflix’s original content. Their 2015 releases will be bringing a whole lot more. And while “House Of Cards” and “Orange Is The New Black” grab the most headlines, a new comedy is hoping to make its mark, too.
Featured in our 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2015, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is led by “The Office” star Ellie Kemper, playing a young woman who is broken free from the bunker of a doomsday cult. She discovers the world is just fine and decides to move to New York City to live life to the fullest. Originally airing briefly on NBC before being ported over to Netflix, the show looks to mix the very broad (wacky gay best friend! snooty rich New York City woman! anonymous magazine model love interest!) with a good concept, that still has some good comic moments, especially when finding new variations on the fish-out-of-water theme.
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” arrives on March 6th. Watch the trailer below.
