All4 picks up NBC sitcom 30 Rock

Channel 4 has picked up hit NBC comedy 30 Rock for its streaming service All 4.

The first two series will be available from this week with the remaining five arriving at a later date.

Written and starring Tina Fey, 30 Rock follows Liz Lemon, a head writer for live sketch-comedy show, as she tries to contend with the mad escapades of her colleagues.

Other characters of note include erratic Hollywood star Tracy (Tracy Morgan) and suave executive ‘fixer’ Jack (Alec Baldwin).

30 Rock has won numerous awards, including 11 Emmys, six Golden Globes and 11 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Along with 30 Rock, the deal with NBCUniversal International Distribution has secured Channel 4 the rights to the newest season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which will have its season six premiere in the UK later in 2019.

Charlie Palmer, All 4 managing editor said: “30 Rock is a must-watch and we’re thrilled to have it kick-start our 2019 schedule. All 4 is fast becoming the go-to place for great comedy and 30 Rock is a fantastic addition.”
