Liz Lemon is getting married and you’re invited.
Fans of “30 Rock” might have reasonably assumed that Lemon, the harried TV producer played by Tina Fey, would ride out the series’ seventh and final season as a perennial bachelorette unlucky in love. But Miss Fey, who also is the creator and producer of the NBC comedy, clearly thought otherwise.
On Thursday, NBC made the grand announcement that Ms. Elizabeth Miervaldis Lemon, 42, would be presenting herself to be married to Mr. Crisstopher Rick Chross — but “not in a creepy way that perpetuates the idea that brides are virgins and women are property.”
The invitation also specifies that guests (i.e., you viewers) should plan to “bring your own snacks.”
No preview of the episode has been made available.
The series, which airs at 8 p.m. Thursdays, will conclude early next year.
“30 Rock” is the saga of Lemon, the overextended producer of a fictitious comedy show loosely inspired by “Saturday Night Live” (where Miss Fey worked for nine seasons as a cast member and writer). Liz is surrounded by kooky comrades including company boss Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) and Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan), her boisterously unhinged star.
A recurring theme of “30 Rock” has been Lemon’s comically flawed love life. Short-lived boyfriends have included quirky airline pilot Carol Burnett (played by Matt Damon), immature businessman Dennis Duffy (Dean Winters) and dim-witted pediatrician Dr. Drew Baird (Jon Hamm).
ESPN makes 12-year deal for Sugar Bowl rights
A person familiar with the contract said it was worth about $80 million per year through 2026, according to The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because terms of the agreement were not being made public and details were still pending.
The Big 12 and SEC recently picked the Sugar Bowl as the site of their new marquee game, starting in the 2014 season.
The champions of each conference will play in the game, unless those teams are selected for the four-team playoff that also starts that season. In that case, other highly ranked teams from the Big 12 and SEC will play in the game.View Entire Story
