Edie Falco is coming back to television!

And while her first plans are to shoot a new Showtime series called Nurse Jackie (which airs this summer), the Emmy-winning actress also tells us she could very well end up back on 30 Rock once her schedule clears. After all, both shows happen to shoot in NYC, and a certain vice president of East Coast television and microwave oven programming may be missing her.

"I can't be [on 30 Rock] until [Nurse Jackie] is done, but I would do it again in a heartbeat," Edie tells us, adding that she only has five more episodes of Jackie to shoot.

Yo, Tina Fey make it happen!

Falco also admits that working with Alec Baldwin and Tina was actually terrifying and she didn't even want the role in the first place...

"I said to my agents and managers, 'That's great. I don't do that kind of show,' " she remembers. But luckily they forced her on the set, citing how great the show is and how much people love it.

As for working with this year's Best Actor and Actress in TV Golden Globes winners, Falco says, "I was actually very scared. You watch Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey; it's like they are speaking Swahili. It's like, 'What the hell is this?' "

Still, she says she learned a lot, especially from Mr. Jack Donaghy himself: "Alec Baldwin actually said to me, 'Everything you ever taught yourself as an actor not to do because it's bad acting, do it on this show.' Because it's larger than life, it's just different. I was thrilled with the opportunity."
