The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
As head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", Liz Lemon struggles to keep up with a crazy new star, a disorderly team of writers and a pompous boss— all while attempting to run a weekly show without resorting to loads of comfort food.
30 Rock is a comedy series about a group of writers and actors part of a fictional sketch comedy show called TGS with Tracy Jordan. The show is centred around Liz Lemon ( Tina Fey), head writer of the series, and her struggles to keep up with the show's constant insanity.
The cast and crew of TGS with Tracy Jordan
Liz was the head writer for a sketch comedy show called The Girlie Show, which starred Jenna Maroney ( Jane Krakowski) and Josh Girard ( Lonny Ross). Along with her producer Pete Hornberger ( Scott Adsit), Liz's show was in a complete comfort zone. A great crew, great set of actors and a boss that adored them. However, their former boss (whom is never shown) is said simply to have died and Jack Donaghy ( Alec Baldwin) introduces himself to them as their new boss.'
After a brief introduction and a prompt discussion of why her show is not hitting the "target demographics", Jack tells Liz to talk to Tracy Jordan ( Tracy Morgan), an out-of-control hollywood star, and try to get him to join the show. Immediately after Tracy's first TV appearance, The Girlie Show is immediately renamed to TGS with Tracy Jordan and Liz is forced to control Tracy's craziness, Jenna's new-found jealousy and her writer staff's constant stupidities.
