Opening Day is coming for comedy series “Brockmire,“ which 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.
“Brockmire” originally appeared as a viral short video on the award-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. Here are the upcoming episodes:
