*The executive producer of NBC’s “30 Rock” has big plans for the return of recurring star Sherri Shepherd after the midseason break.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Robert Carlock explained that Jack (Alec Baldwin) will use Shepherd’s character Angie (wife of Tracy Morgan’s character Tracy Jordan) to impress the network executives.
Carlock revealed that Jack will convince Angie to star in a “Real Housewives”-style show, saying: “Jack realizes she has all the attributes for a reality show. And Liz, in spite of herself, is saying, ‘Yeah, I would watch that’.”
Carlock added that Jack will also try to impress the network by producing a celebrity-endorsed relief benefit even though there is no disaster to raise money for.
“Jack has this idea that the highest-rated reality events are celebrity disaster relief benefits,” he said. “So he decides to pre-tape one and beat the other networks to the punch.”
30 Rock airs on Thursdays at 8.30/7.30c on NBC.
