VITAL STATS

LIZ LEMON'S BACK STORY

Liz Lemon grew up in White Haven, Pennsylvania. She has one brother, who due to a skiing accident, thinks he is perpetually in 1985 and that he is 17 years old. Liz's career in television writing was inspired by Rosemary Howard, the first female head writer of Laugh-In. While attending Smith College she earned a B.A. in theater tech and spent her junior year in Frankfurt, Germany.

After graduation she lived with TGS cast member Jenna Malone in Chicago. The two developed The Girlie Show as part of the Second City theater group. When The Girlie Show was picked up by NBC the pair moved to New York and Liz became head writer.

The character of Liz Lemon has often mentioned she is from White Haven, PA, and she acts as though that is a suburb of Philadelphia. White Haven is actually about a two-hour drive north from Philadelphia, closer to Scranton and the Poconos than Philadelphia. Oddly, Tina Fey is really from Upper Darby, PA, which actually is a suburb of Philadelphia, so if this was a writer's gaffe, she should have caught it.
