Default 30 Rock is returning to NBC next month for a remote special promoting NBC Universal

The July 16 hourlong commercial-free 30 Rock reunion special will double as an upfront event for NBC Universal properties, and will air one day after the nationwide launch of the Peacock streaming service. The special, which NBC is describing as "a first-of-its-kind all-audience upfront event," will feature the return of original 30 Rock cast members Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer and more reprising their roles in an all-new story that will involve promoting NBC Universal programming. The 30 Rock special comes two months after the Parks and Recreation cast reunited for a virtual special, and will feature guest appearances from NBC Universal talent. “We’re all happy to have this excuse to (remotely) work together again for NBC,” said 30 Rock executive producers Fey and Robert Carlock in a joint statement. “To quote Kenneth the Page, there are only two things we love in this world, television and everyone.” NBC Universal chairman of advertising and partnerships Linda Yaccarino adds: “As the old saying goes… when life hands you Lemon, have her host the Upfront!” The special will be rebroadcast on July 17 on USA, Bravo, E!, Syfy and other NBC Universal properties.
