From 30 Rock to Wordy Shock
The Blue Jean Committee is coming to a TV near you!
Impressionists Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, whose DNA includes the need to relentlessly escape into humorously absurd characters, as well as a ’70s slow rock band, have a brand new show with fellow SNL buddy Seth Meyers. The show is called Documentary Now! and it starts airing on the IFC Channel this Thursday at 10:00 p.m. What’s arguably more insane than their portrayals of well-known documentary filmmakers is that the series has already been renewed for seasons 2…and 3 before episode one has even premiered.
If crazy and ridiculous made a television show together, it would have some catching up to do to match the comedic duo of Hader and Armisen in their latest collaborative experiment.
Whether the show is a success like Armisen’s hilarious Portlandia is up in the air, but at least it will be documented.
