30 Rock creator Tina Fey took time out from last night's season premiere party to reflect on the show's final season and predicted that the last week of filming is likely to include "a lot of crying and stealing stuff."
"It's bittersweet that we're starting our final season," Fey said about her feelings as the NBC comedy prepares to end its seven-year run. She was attending the season debut at a celebration in New York co-sponsored by Entertainment Weekly and Garnier Nutrisse.
"I think the last week or two of the show is just going to be people
crying and stealing stuff from the set," Fey said. "We're already starting to say
'I call that,' and I think we also want at some point to try to have an
auction of some big, weird items for charity."
Fey noted that the premiere party was being held on the same night as
the first presidential debate and she teased that the upcoming season
will include some political themes involving Tracy Morgan's character.
Jane Krakowski revealed that she's "feeling sentimental" every day she goes to work on 30 Rock. "It's going to be very bittersweet, and the hardest words I'm going to hear I think for a long time will be: 'It's a series wrap.'" The star said the thing she'd most want to keep from the set is a "diaper chicken" outfit she wore on an episode.
