IFC’s highly anticipated comedy series, “Brockmire” starring Hank Azaria and Amanda Peet premieres tonight with back-to-back episodes. In advance to tonight’s premiere, the network made the premiere episode available digitally across several platforms and has already drawn rave reviews from critics.
“Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire (Hank Azaria), a famed major league baseball announcer who suffered an embarrassing public meltdown live on the air a decade ago after discovering his wife’s infidelity. Now, looking to reclaim his career, reputation, and love life, Brockmire takes a job in a small American rust belt town, calling minor league baseball games for the Morristown Frackers. Amanda Peet co-stars as Jules, the strong-willed and hard-drinking proud owner of the Frackers, and Tyrel Jackson Williams stars as Charles, the team’s whiz-kid intern,” says IFC’s press release.
After notching over 2.3 million digital viewers, IFC announced they’ve already picked up the new comedy for a second season expected to air in 2018.
With a second season renewal before the broadcast premiere, don’t miss the debut back-to-back episodes of “Brockmire” airing tonight at 10 pm ET on IFC.
