Brockmire (IFC) – Premieres 5th April – Renewed
Comedy about sports commentator Jim Brockmire, who after having a breakdown while commenting a baseball match in 2007 flees the country for ten years in a drug induced haze before taking a job at a minor team as a play-by-play caller.
When he turns up at the team he begins to realise that his breakdown ten years earlier has become a thing of legend and the first viral video on the internet. After being talked into accept his past by his new employers he see that the team he’ll be play calling are a bunch of misfits that are taking gamesmanship to a new level.
It’s easily one of the better first eps of a comedy, the breakdown itself is more than enough to warrant a watch.
