(NEW YORK) — The seventh and final season of NBC’s 30 Rock got under way Thursday and it seems Alec Baldwin was willing to take a pay-cut to try and extend the life of the Emmy-winning comedy.
“I offered NBC to cut my pay 20 percent in order to have a full 7th and 8th seasons of 30 Rock,” Baldwin tweeted, “I realize times have changed.”
Zap2it reveals that the shortened 13-episode final season will see Liz Lemon, played by Tina Fey, actively trying to conceive a child with her boyfriend, played by James Marsden. Meanwhile, Baldwin’s character, Jack Donaghy, is divorced and on the dating scene.
