Spoiler Alert: Nashville on 30 Rock?



Over at Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood site, they've got an interview with the 30 Rock creative team. Deadline Hollywood asks the 30 Rock folks if they think Tracy Morgan's little Nashville incident will cost the TV show any chance at an Emmy, and whether the incident will be fictionalized for the show:

DEADLINE: Do you think that Tracy Morgan’s seemingly anti-gay jokes in his standup routine [“I’ll kill my son if he acts gay”] will hurt the show’s Emmy chances or its reputation in general?

TINA FEY: Because of my real-life pregnancy, we don’t go back on the air until January. I’m hoping that Tracy will have, and the world will have, forgotten about that by then. He from the first has gone around very sincerely and done his best to try to make up for the foolishness.
CARLOCK: He’s horrified and embarrassed. … Certainly if we come home [from the Emmys] empty-handed, I’m not going to blame Tracy.

DEADLINE: Will you write the controversy into the show?
FEY: It’s the kind of story that even if it happened to someone else, we would probably turn it into a Tracy story. So we may use it.

I don't know about you guys, but I hope this does pan out. It'd be nice for once to be part of a national joke without being the butt of it.
