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.
Artificial intelligence threatens to take steps in its pursuit to rule the world and attempts to take over baseball. Jim and Jules must decide if they want to embolden this emerging society ruled by machines or stay with the failing status quo.
IFC announced today that Brockmire will be coming to an end after its already-ordered fourth season. The comedy was last renewed in 2018, receiving a two-season pickup at the time.
Hank Azaria stars in the series as the titular character, 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 series originated as a viral short video on the comedy website 'Funny Or Die', and its adaptation for television has been a successful one. Audiences and critics have both praised the show, which in its first season drew better ratings than any other new series in the network's history.
Look for the fourth and final season of Brockmire to premiere in March 2020.
