Comedy Central picks up “30 Rock”


“30 Rock” will add a new address in 2011 as Comedy Central has reached a multi-year deal with NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution to license the comedy series.  The all-comedy channel will launch the series with five seasons beginning in the fall of 2011.

Nominated for a record 17 Emmy Awards in 2008, “30 Rock” won seven times, including Outstanding Comedy Series for the second consecutive year, tying the record for most comedy Emmys in a single season.  30 Rock has also won a Golden Globe for Best Television Series, a Screen Actor’s Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an ensemble in a Comedy Series.
