IFC'S REVEALS STAR-STUDDED, MUSICAL-INSPIRED EPISODE OF "DOCUMENTARY NOW!" SEASON 52

John Mulaney, Taran Killam, Richard Kind, Paula Pell, Alex Brightman, James Urbaniak and Renee Elise Goldsberry Guest Star in "Original Cast Album: Co-Op"

Series Returns in 2019 with Seven All-New Episodes

NEW YORK - August 13, 2018 - IFC today announced the details and guest stars for an upcoming musical-inspired episode of Documentary Now!, the Emmy(R)-nominated original series co-created by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas and executive produced by Lorne Michaels. Known for lovingly paying homage to the world of documentaries, Season 52 of Documentary Now! is set to premiere on Wednesday, February 20 at 10PM with the first of seven all-new episodes.

"Original Cast Album: Co-Op" is inspired by Original Cast Album: Company, the 1970 D.A. Pennebaker documentary that follows the strenuous overnight cast recording of Stephen Sondheim's hit musical. Documentary Now!'s "Original Cast Album: Co-Op" follows producers Benedict Juniper (Taran Killam, Saturday Night Live), Simon Sawyer (John Mulaney, Big Mouth) and Howard Pine (James Urbaniak, Difficult People) overseeing the recording for the cast album of the musical Co-Op. The star-studded cast of Co-Op includes Kenny (Alex Brightman, Broadway's School of Rock), Larry (Richard Kind, Red Oaks), Patty (Paula Pell, A.P. Bio), and Dee Dee (Renee Elise Goldsberry, Broadway's Hamilton).

"Original Cast Album: Co-Op" joins previously announced episode "Waiting for the Artist," starring two-time Academy Award(R)-winner Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine, Carol) and drawing inspiration from the 2012 documentary Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present to headline Season 52. Additional casting and episodic details will be released at a later date.

The twice Emmy(R)-nominated Documentary Now! debuted to rave reviews from critics and quickly became a fan favorite thanks to its insightful take on some of the most well-known documentary films. Each episode, hosted by Dame Helen Mirren, takes viewers back in time to honor groundbreaking documentaries. Guest stars from previous seasons include Faye Dunaway, Mia Farrow, Maya Rudolph, John Slattery and more.

In addition to Armisen, Hader, Meyers, Thomas and Michaels, Documentary Now! is also executive produced by Alex Buono and Broadway Video's Andrew Singer. SNL's Thomas and Buono serve as the show's directors. John Mulaney and Erik Kenward return as consulting producers, with Alice Mathias serving as co-executive producer and Matt Pacult serving as co-producer.

Catch up on Documentary Now! on Netflix and iTunes.
