IFC PICKS UP SEASON 4 OF "BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW" FOR 2019 PREMIERE

Season 3 of the Award-Winning Sketch Series to Premiere Thursday, November 8 at 9PM

NEW YORK - August 23, 2018 - IFC announced today that it has picked up the upcoming fourth season of the all-female sketch series Baroness von Sketch Show which will air on the network in 2019. The series is performed and written by Carolyn Taylor, Meredith MacNeill, Aurora Browne and Jennifer Whalen. Whalen also serves as the season's showrunner.

Season 3 of the series will premiere on IFC Thursday, November 8 at 9PM with two back to back episodes. The remaining episodes of the 10-episode third season will air weekly, with episodes airing two at a time Thursdays starting at 9PM. Originally airing on Canada's public broadcaster, CBC, and produced by Frantic Films, IFC acquired Seasons 1 and 2 of Baroness von Sketch Show from Banijay Rights and debuted both seasons last summer to strong critical acclaim.

"Three years ago, we fell in love with the brilliant, inspired and 'slightly off' point of view that embodies Baroness von Sketch Show, and we have never looked at red wine, healthy salads, workplace politics and dry shampoo the same way since," said Christine Lubrano, SVP Original Programming at IFC. "Truly, it is the only sketch show to be created, written, directed by women and star four female leads. Their insane brand of comedy, while appealing to absolutely everyone, has a particularly resonant tone right now. We are thrilled Carolyn, Meredith, Aurora and Jennifer will be returning to IFC for a fourth season in 2019."

Hailed as "fabulous" by The New York Times and "the best thing to come out of Canada since Ryan Gosling" by Vogue, Baroness von Sketch Show provides an insightful, satirical look at our everyday modern lives. Fast-paced and irreverent, the female-driven sketch comedy series celebrates the absurd and mines the embarrassing, offering a fresh, witty take on relatable moments such as crying at work, waiting in airport security lines, dealing with gossip-obsessed co-workers, co-parenting and more. The series recently was awarded "Best Sketch Comedy Program or Series" at the 2018 Canadian Screen Awards.

Baroness von Sketch Show is executive produced by Jamie Brown, Taylor, MacNeill, Browne and Whalen. Taylor served as showrunner for the series' first three seasons. The series is produced by Frantic Films and originates on CBC in Canada. It is distributed internationally by Banijay Rights. Season 3 will premiere in Canada on CBC, the CBC TV streaming app and cbc.ca/watch on Tuesday, September 18 at 9PM (9:30NT). Season 4 is set to begin production in Toronto in the coming month.
