Tina Fey, the writer, producer and star of “30 Rock,” was in Bayside on Wednesday filming her new show, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

Fey, who co-created the show, oversaw production as the camera rolled on the star of the show,  Ellie Kemper from “The Office.” Trucks and trailers clustered around St. Josaphat’s Church and the crew used the church’s parking lot for the scene.

The comedy show also stars Tituss Burgess, and the show will air in the spring.

Kemper stars as Kimmy Schmidt, who was forced to live in a cult for 15 years before being rescued. She decides to move to New York City instead of returning to her home in Indiana.

According to crew members, filming will continue into early tomorrow at 1 a.m. and they also plan to shoot scenes at Crocheron Park.
