Ahead of its season premiere on August 20, IFC has renewed its original comedy Documentary Now! from Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Seth Meyers, for two additional seasons. IFC also added seventh episode to Season 1, up from the initial order of six episodes, which premieres this Thursday, August 20 at 10 PM.
Documentary Now! parodies some of the world’s best-known documentaries. Starring Armisen and Hader, each episode is shot in a different style of documentary filmmaking and honors some of the most important stories that didn’t actually happen.
The second episode of Documentary Now! is currently pre-premiering on VICE.com, IFC.com, YouTube, VOD, DISH channel 102, iGuide, and on TV Everywhere platforms across IFC’s distribution partners. The episode launched on August 10 and will be available through August 27.
Documentary Now! is produced by Broadway Video and executive produced by Lorne Michaels. The series is also co-created and executive produced by Rhys Thomas and executive produced by Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer. SNL’s Thomas and Alex Buono serve as the show’s directors. John Mulaney (Mulaney, SNL) serves as consulting producer and Erik Kenward (SNL) is supervising producer.
