"Brockmire"
Season 2 Premieres Wednesday, April 25 at 10PM ET/PT on IFC
 
          IFC’s critically acclaimed comedy 
Brockmire is returning with Critics’ Choice Awards nominee Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) as Jim Brockmire, the boozy baseball announcer trying to make a comeback in the major leagues. Returning to star alongside Azaria are Tyrel Jackson Williams (Lab Rats) and Amanda Peet (Togetherness).
 
         Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire, a famed major league baseball announcer who suffered a notorious public breakdown after stumbling upon his wife’s infidelity – a breakdown so bad that “Brutal Brockmire” became a viral internet meme. Season 1 began a decade later, as Brockmire looked to reclaim his career, reputation, and love life.  He eventually found happiness calling games for the Morristown Frackers, the underdog minor league baseball team, alongside his girlfriend Jules (Peet). 

 
 
         Now one year following the Season 1 finale, which found Brockmire chasing an opportunity to call games in New Orleans, (and leaving Jules behind in the process,) he is a top podcaster with his show “Brock Bottom,” while living with his co-dependent friend Charles (Williams)…and boozing harder than ever. Still trying to still reclaim his career as a top sportscaster, Brockmire cannot resist the sinful temptations of the Big Easy, while pining for the girl he left behind in Morristown, PA and struggling to find his purpose in life.
 
          Season 2 guest stars include Carrie Preston (True Blood), Becky Ann Baker (Girls), Dreama Walker (Doubt), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project). Katie Finneran (Bloodline) and Hemky Madera (Queen of the South) also return as Lucy Brockmire and Pedro Uribe, respectively.
