New York, NY - July 19, 2012 - The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has honored IFC's original comedy series Portlandia with two Emmy nominations. Created and written by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, Portlandia welcomes viewers to the creators' romanticized and dreamy rendering of Portland, OR.

The series previously won a 2011 Emmy award for Outstanding Costumes for a Variety Program or Special and a 2011 Peabody Award.

"We are honored the show has been recognized with these Emmy nominations," said co-creator, writer and director Jonathan Krisel. "It is a privilege to be part of the conversation. We'd also like to extend our thanks to the city of Portland, which has embraced and championed the show in a way that I think none of us could have imagined."

Jennifer Caserta, President & General Manager of IFC, commented: "Portlandia has become a genre defining original series for IFC and our distinct brand of alternative comedy. Today's honor is matched only by the tremendous support the show has received from fans and the press, and is a testament to the amazing efforts of the show's entire creative team. We are grateful to them and to the Academy for these nominations."

Season three of Portlandia returns to IFC in January 2013 and the one-hour summer event, Portlandia: The Brunch Special, premieres Friday, July 20 at 11pm.

Shot entirely on location in Portland, OR the series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video. For IFC, the series is executive produced by Debbie DeMontreux and Dan Pasternack.
