Brockmire is a famed major league baseball announcer who suffers an embarrassing and very public meltdown live on the air after discovering his wife’s infidelity. A decade later, Jim Brockmire decides to reclaim his career and love life in a small American rust belt town that has seen better days, calling minor league baseball games for the Morristown Frackers. The struggling team is led by Jules, the strong-willed, hard-drinking owner and Charles, the naïve but enthusiastic team intern.
Ahead of tonight's series premiere of Brockmire, IFC has announced that the new comedy has already been renewed for a second season. The good news comes after the show's pilot episode, which was made available early on various online platforms, was met with a positive reception by both viewers and critics.
Starring Hank Azaria, Brockmire follows a famed major league baseball announcer who, after suffering an embarrassing public breakdown on the air a decade ago, moves to a small town with a focus on reclaiming his career, reputation, and love life. The concept of the show originated as a viral short video on the comedy website 'Funny Or Die'.
Catch the series premiere tonight at 10:00pm on IFC with two back-to-back episodes. As for Season 2, expect a return in 2018 with eight new episodes.
