When Tina Fey first set out to create 30 Rock after her highly successful run on Saturday Night Live, it seemed the pilot was doomed to fail. The one thing that stood out was the casting of Jenna. The original 30 Rock pilot had a completely different actress in the role of Jenna. After pivoting towards a more sitcom oriented actress 30 Rock was given the green light, and the rest is history.
