EMMY AWARD-NOMINATED "MAKING IT" HOSTS AMY POEHLER AND NICK OFFERMAN RETURN TO NBC DEC. 2 WITH A CRAFTWORTHY AND COMEDY-FILLED NEW SEASON

More Episodes, More Puns and More of America's Most Diverse Makers Bring Skill and Heart to Earn $100,000

Eight-Episode "Making It" Event Gives Viewers Chance to Enjoy, Laugh and Create Inspired Gifts for Friends and Family Just in Time for the Holidays

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Oct. 18, 2019 - Grab your glue guns and get ready to laugh as NBC's "Making It," from executive producers and hosts Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, returns with a multi-night crafting event beginning Monday, Dec. 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

In a binge-worthy holiday treat, "Making It" premieres Monday, Dec. 2 and continues Dec. 3-5 (10-11 p.m.), Dec. 9 (10-11 p.m.) and Dec. 10 (10-11 p.m.) before concluding with a two-hour grand finale telecast on Wednesday, Dec. 11 (9-11 p.m.).

"I'm so happy to be back in the barn for season two of 'Making It' with my pal Nick, where the Makers create masterpieces and everyone continues to aggressively like each other," Poehler said.

"I'm so excited for America to see our new crop of crafting champs," Offerman said. "Their creativity and pluck make my job feel like I'm getting paid to cheer at the Olympics."

The wow factor is raised in season two as the country's most imaginative Makers from Miami to Portland take fans on a journey through everything from office makeovers to three-dimensional holiday creations. Working with mediums from food to felt, and no shortage of electricity, this season's Makers vie to impress returning judges Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy trend expert and Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York.

A critical darling, Season 1 received a 100% Certified Fresh Rotten Tomato score and earned a Critic's Choice Real TV nomination. For their endless puns, heartfelt guidance and comedic banter, Poehler and Offerman also earned an Emmy Award nomination for competition series hosts.

During its first season, "Making It" averaged a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.9 million viewers in "live plus seven day" Nielsens, which made it the summer's #1 most-watched new series. Season 1 of "Making it" ran undefeated in its timeslot versus regular broadcast competition in the key adult 18-49 demographic ("live plus same day").

On digital platforms, the show's July 31 premiere was NBC's strongest launch of an alternative series on record.

Only on the NBC App can fans now catch up on Season 1 of "Making It." On both the NBC App and Hulu, Season 2 episodes will begin streaming the next day as part of NBC's "Oh, What Fun!" holiday lineup.

Each episode will revolve around a central theme with the Makers completing two crafts based on current trends in DIY and anchored in America's love for all things handmade. The first, a "faster-craft," gives the Makers a limited time to execute their personal take on each theme. Next is the more in depth "master craft," challenging each Maker to display their respective expertise while combining originality, imagination and quality finishing to move on to the next round of the competition. In the end, the winning contestant will be crowned "Master Maker."

Poehler and Offerman share a love for craftwork, each bringing unique and often comical perspectives to the table. Poehler, a self-proclaimed crafting novice, desired to create a show that she and her family could enjoy that would inspire viewers young and old to make things, together. Offerman is a New York Times bestselling author in the woodworking space.

Returning to its light-filled and scenic barn, this season's Makers bring along some surprising craft mediums and equally compelling background stories that led them to the Maker community, from solar metrology, to interior design, to aerospace engineering.

The $100,000 grand prize comes courtesy of Bluprint, the ultimate online destination for crafters. Go to mybluprint.com to start a new hobby or reconnect with an old one.

"Making It" is executive produced by Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Nicolle Yaron, Kate Arend, Dave Becky and Pip Wells. The series is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio in association with Paper Kite Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
