BEVERLY HILLS , Calif., Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Netflix says it has set a March 6 premiere date for its new original comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Created by 30 Rock veterans Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the half-hour, single-camera show stars Ellie Kemper as a woman who, after 15 years in a doomsday cult, decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City.

"Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, and a couple of way-past-due library books, Kimmy'’s ready to take on a world she didn'’t even think existed anymore. Wide-eyed but resilient, nothing is going to stand in her way," a synopsis said.

The 13-episode series, produced by Universal Television, also stars Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess and Carol Kane.
