Tornado Shelter Appears on New Netflix Hit Series

Leading innovative, safety product makes appearance on new hit television series by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.

The fear of spring and summer storms are on the minds of families all across the United States. While the tornado season is off to a relatively calm start, a hit new Netflix series entitled “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” brings a tornado shelter into millions of homes spanning across the globe. As tornado season has already claimed the lives of a few residents in the southern part of the country, the appearance of the underground tornado shelter on the hit new series, can be viewed as a friendly reminder that the threat of inclement storms and tornadoes is not too far away.

“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” premiered earlier this month on the streaming service Netflix. It was viewed by many critics and publications as an instant hit, amidst glowing reviews for the show. The show’s creators, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock fame join forces to create another hilariously funny comedy.

The show stars Ellie Kemper (The Office, 21 Jump Street, Bridesmaids), Jane Krakowski (Ally McBeal, 30 Rock), and Tituss Burgess (30 Rock, You Must Be Joking). The entire first season of the show is available to stream currently on Netflix. The show has already been signed on for a second season.

“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” also employs a ‘viral’ theme song for the show, as it features the wildly popular team at “Songify This” to turn a witness interview from the premiere episode into the opening theme song for the show.
