Capitalizing on the successful ongoing tour of the couple’s frank, honest and raunchy look at their marriage, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are bringing their Summer of 69: No Apostrophe show to television courtesy of Epix. The one-hour special will be filmed tonight at The Barclay in Irvine, CA and is set for world premiere on Epix Friday, May 19 at 10 PM ET.
Touring since the summer to wide acclaim, Offerman & Mullally’s Summer of 69: No Apostrophe examines their relationship and sex life in often stark detail through jokes, songs and other routines.
“We love to make sweet love to each other in general, so to be paid millions of dollars to do it in front of an audience is just that much sweeter,” said Offerman and Mullally.
