Golden Globe and Emmy Award Winner Edie Falco to guest star in NBC's Emmy Nominated "30 Rock"

NEW YORK � September 6, 2007 � Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy Award winner Edie Falco, ("The Sopranos) will guest star in three episodes of NBC's critically acclaimed comedy "30 Rock." This is in addition to the previously announced rare guest-starring appearance by Golden Globe winner Jerry Seinfeld. "30 Rock" marks Falco's first television appearance since the season finale of "The Sopranos." Returning favorites Rip Torn, Will Arnett and Sherri Shepherd will also reprise their guest roles for the second season, which premieres October 4th (Thursday, 8:30-9 p.m. ET).

"I have laughed out loud at this show, and I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with such great comic actors," said Falco. "I am very excited."

"We're thrilled to have such an amazing actress come join us," said Tina Fey, Creator/ Executive Producer/ Star, "30 Rock." "Also, a lot of guys on our crew want 'The Sopranos' ending explained to them."

"Obviously, it's a very exciting thing for all of us to have Edie come on the show. This is just another great example of how fun and how exciting the casting of our show has been," said Alec Baldwin.

In its freshman year, "30 Rock" boasted a long list of guest stars including Paul Reubens, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, John McEnroe, Maury Povich, Ghostface Killah, LL Cool J, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane, Molly Shannon, Chris Parnell, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis. The show also garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Elaine Stritch.

"30 Rock," nominated for 10 Emmy Awards and billed by Entertainment Weekly as "�clever but not too cool, daffy but not slapstick, NBC's 30 Rock...the funniest sitcom on TV" - is told through the comedic voice of Fey (as Liz Lemon) and features Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild winner Baldwin (Jack Donaghy) as a top network executive and Tracy Morgan (Tracy Jordan) as the unpredictable star of Lemon's hit variety show, "TGS with Tracy Jordan." Lemon had her hands full this past season, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life.

Also rounding out the cast in the half-hour comedy are: Jane Krakowski (Jenna Maroney) as the deposed star of "TGS," struggling to reclaim her top billing on the show; Scott Adsit (Pete Hornberger) as the variety show's producer whose marriage is seemingly always on the mend; Jack McBrayer (Kenneth the Page) as the over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC page; Judah Friedlander (Frank) as the sardonic slacker on the writing staff; Lonny Ross (Josh Girard) as a witty writer on staff; Keith Powell (Toofer) a straight-laced and scholarly writer and Katrina Bowden (Cerie), as the show's clueless but beautiful receptionist.

The season one DVD set of "30 Rock" is now available for purchase in stores.

"30 Rock" is from Broadway Video & Little Stranger, Inc. in association with Universal Media Studios. The executive producers are Lorne Michaels ("Saturday Night Live"), Fey, Marci Klein ("Saturday Night Live"), David Miner ("The Tracy Morgan Show") and Robert Carlock ("Friends").
