Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe Stars in ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Special
Famous for playing Harry Potter in the franchise, Daniel Radcliffe will star in the interactive special for “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” on Netflix. This will be the show’s final offering before it officially ends the series.
Set for 2020, the special follows Kimmy Schmidt (played by Ellie Kemper) on her biggest adventure yet. Similar to “Black Mirror,” viewers will get to choose how the show ends.
In May, Netflix confirmed that “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” will wrap up with one more production, an interactive show.
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was one of the first original comedy series on Netflix, and now it will be its first interactive comedy event,” creator Tina Fey confirmed during a fan panel. “Fans will be able to make choices on behalf of our characters, taking different story paths with, of course, different jokes.”
It’s unclear, however, what Radcliffe’s role will be in this final outing from the comedy show created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Speculations are that Radcliffe could be Kimmy’s new love interest.
Production for this special will be underway in New York this summer. The synopsis for the show is below.
Three states! Explosions! A dancing hamburger! And you, the viewer, get to decide how the story goes. Will you foil the Reverend’s (Jon Hamm) evil plan and get Kimmy to her wedding on time? Or will you accidentally start a war against the robots? So grab your remote and a tray of delicious scrod, ’cause Kimmy’s got her own Netflix interactive special!
