OMG! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt films in Orlando

Unbreakable Kimmy SchmidtThe Netflix mega-hit Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has renewed for a second season, and there seems to be a surprise in the new season. Possible spoiler: a casting call was out for looking for extras for filming to take place at Universal Orlando Resort.

The casting call was looking for extras to appear in the theme park and specifically asked for coaster enthusiasts. The filming started and wrapped mid-January.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a fast paced comedy co-created by SNL and 30 Rock’s Tina Fey, produced as a Netflix original sitcom. It focuses on Kimmy, one of the survivors of a group known as the “mole women,” who were lured to an underground bunker by a leader of a doomsday cult. Led to believe the world above was pretty much destroyed, Kimmy and the rest of the mole women remained in that bunker for 15 years until they were rescued. The show hysterically deals with the inexperienced 29 year old trying to survive in New York City without disclosing her past. The show was originally pitched to NBC, but it was passed on as it was rumored NBC was worried regarding the extreme tongue-in-cheek content regarding homosexuality and race.

Orlando Attractions Magazine posted a photo to their Instagram showing Ellie Kemper (Kimmy) and another actress filming in front of Shrek 4D; no word if Titus Burgess who play Titus Andromedon will make an appearance in the Orlando portion of the show. We would truly love to hear Titus’ Peeno Noir (Pinot Noir) performed live at the Universal Music Plaza where they host the Mardi Gras concert series.
