JON HAMM TO GUEST STAR IN IFC'S RETURNING ORIGINAL COMEDY SERIES "THE INCREASINGLY POOR DECISIONS OF TODD MARGARET"

Season Two Features New Original Music by "The Smiths'" Johnny Marr

Series Returns to IFC in January 2012

NEW YORK, NY, July 25, 2011 - IFC announced today that Jon Hamm (Mad Men) will guest star in the second season of IFC's original comedy series, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, which will premiere in January 2012. Hamm is featured along side stars David Cross and Will Arnett in five of the series' six brand new half-hour episodes. Additionally, musician Johnny Marr returns to score and perform the series' original music to compliment the existing original pieces he created for season one.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is created, written by and stars David Cross (Arrested Development) as Todd Margaret, a corporate nobody and well-intentioned bloke who bluffs his way into a senior sales position heading up the London office for the new energy drink Thunder Muscle. The show also stars Will Arnett (Arrested Development) as Todd's sniveling boss, Brent, Sharon Horgan (Pulling) as Alice, the unwilling object of Todd's affection and Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners) as Todd's mysteriously devious singular employee, Dave.

Last season found Todd continuously discovering new outlandish layers of trouble for himself including instigating a biohazard emergency at a major grocery store, getting swindled out of his stock of Thunder Muscle by Turkish terrorists, and being arrested for breaking into Parliament in a misguided attempt to woo Alice. In the upcoming season, we come full circle to Todd's court hearing and find out the identity of the clandestine mastermind of Todd's misfortune.

Actor Jon Hamm is best known for his portrayal of Don Draper in the 1960s-set drama series Mad Men, which earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series in 2008. Most recently he starred in Judd Apatow's comedy Bridesmaids.

At just 18 years old, Johnny Marr launched the band, "The Smiths." He later went on to play with "The The," "Electronic," "Modest Mouse" and "The Cribs." Marr was also featured on the Hans Zimmer composed soundtrack for the film "Inception," starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is a co-production between IFC and RDF Television, part of Zodiak Media Group in the UK. The series is co-written by Shaun Pye (Extras) and Mark Chappell (Hu$tle). Executive producers for IFC are Jennifer Caserta, Debbie DeMontreux, Christine Lubrano, Evan Shapiro and Christian Vesper. The executive producer for RDF Television is Clelia Mountford. The series is produced by Michael Livingstone and directed by Ben Gregor. David Cross is also an associate producer.
