The 30 Rock producer was talking about the future of the sixth season of the NBC comedy in the wake of the dictator's recent death. On the previous season of the show, Jack's (Alec Baldwin) wife Avery (Elizabeth Banks) was kidnapped by Kim Jong-il (Margaret Cho).
"Jack's love life is pretty complicated and it just got more complicated because I think, technically, Avery is the First Lady of North Korea," Carlock told Us Weekly.
The producer went on to say that he was initially worried about the storyline.
"We sort of went back to the script because we'd already shot eight or nine episodes and we realised that luckily we hadn't referred to Kim Jong-il by name yet - just to North Korea in general," he said.
"Maybe we'll have to have Margaret Cho showing up again having faked her death, because she wants to get a gig on a morning talk show," Carlock joked.
Kim Jong-il died of heart failure while riding on a train on December 18 last year.
30 Rock will return on January 12 at 8pm on NBC.
