Netflix has the sour taste of yet another acquired-series departure -- Ms. Liz Lemon herself.
All seven seasons of the NBC Studios-produced sitcom 30 Rock will exit Netflix effective July 31, following the expiration of the streaming company's one-year deal to license the show.
Created by and starring former Saturday Night Live player Tina Fey, and co-starring Tracy Morgan and Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock ran on NBC from 2006-2013, winning 16 Primetime Emmys.
The series hasn't ranked among Netflix's biggest off-net audience getters. In fact, it hasn't ranked on Netflix's "Global Top 10" English-language series, so it's difficult to tell how much audience it's getting for Netflix.
