We’re getting the first look at the 30 Rock reunion special episode in a just-released teaser trailer. It opens with Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon, who is clearly not happy when she runs into a man without a mask on a New York City street during the coronavirus pandemic.
“No mask hotshot? You scared of the virus now?” she yells at the maskless stranger, “I already had corona, I’m on my way to donate plasma,” the man replies as he runs away from her. “Boom! Another successful interaction with a man!” shouts Liz.
