"BROCKMIRE" RETURNS TO THE BOOTH IN THE BIG EASY
First Season 2 Teaser Released
In the eyes of Jim Brockmire, New Orleans is... a city of redemption because regret doesn't exist without shame... a booze-soaked town with no last call... and most importantly, a place where pants are optional, especially when you can't seem to remember where they are.
In a first look at Brockmire Season 2, premiering on IFC Wednesday April 25 at 10PM, Jim Brockmire (Hank Azaria), still wearing his hallmark plaid jacket, arrives in New Orleans, seeking redemption while wallowing in excess and looking to get his once-legendary baseball broadcast career back on track, and finding unexpected new fame with his podcast "Brock Bottom."

Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire, a famed major league baseball announcer who suffered a notorious public breakdown after stumbling upon his wife's infidelity - a breakdown so bad that "Brutal Brockmire" became a viral internet meme. Season 1 began a decade later, as Brockmire looked to reclaim his career, reputation, and love life. He eventually found happiness calling games for the Morristown Frackers, the underdog minor league baseball team, alongside his girlfriend Jules (Amanda Peet). Now one year following the Season 1 finale, which found Brockmire chasing an opportunity to call games in New Orleans, (and leaving Jules behind in the process,) he is a top podcaster with his show "Brock Bottom," while living with his co-dependent friend Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams)... and boozing harder than ever. Still trying to still reclaim his career as a top sportscaster, Brockmire cannot resist the sinful temptations of the Big Easy, while pining for the girl he left behind in Morristown, PA and struggling to find his purpose in life.
Brockmire originally appeared as a viral short video on the award-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. Season 2 is directed by Mo Marable and executive produced by Azaria, Church-Cooper, Marable, Tim Kirkby and Funny Or Die's Mike Farah and Joe Farrell. Brockmire Season 1 will be available to watch on Hulu starting Friday, February 9.
