The fourth and final season of IFC’s critically acclaimed comedy series Brockmire starring Hank Azaria premieres on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 at 10:00pm ET/PT. In the season premiere, “Favorable Matchup,” the year is 2030 and the world is in chaos, but at least Jim is broadcasting his favorite sport and has the love of his daughter. He then learns baseball is worse off than he thought and that his daughter is moving to New York for college.
Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire (Hank Azaria), a famed major league baseball announcer who suffered a notorious public breakdown after stumbling upon his wife’s (Katie Finneran) infidelity – a breakdown so bad that “Brutal Brockmire” became a viral internet meme. In Season 4, it’s 15 years into the dystopian future and Brockmire is now the Commissioner of baseball as the once legendary baseball announcer is now back on top and his struggles with sobriety are behind him. However, at this later stage of his life he is tasked with saving America’s pastime as the world around him descends into chaos, all while trying to salvage his relationship with his newfound daughter (Reina Hardesty) and rekindle the love he once had for Jules (Amanda Peet).
Brockmire originally appeared as a viral short video on the award-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. The series is written and developed by Joel Church-Cooper. This season Azaria, Church-Cooper and Funny Or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell are executive producers. Mo Marable is
IFC’s new comedy series Year of the Rabbit continues on Wednesday, March 18th at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. In the fifth episode, “Hostage,” when a seemingly mad poisoner takes a group of young women hostage and threatens to release deadly gas, Rabbit must handle the crisis before the female con he loves is executed for her crimes.
The new series follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry; Toast of London, What We Do In The Shadows), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his hapless, new, by-the-books partner Strauss (Freddie Fox; Cucumber, Banana). While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter (Susan Wokoma; Chewing Gum, Crazyhead) of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country’s first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.
The Walking Dead Season 10 continues on Sunday, March 22nd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. In Sunday’s all-new episode, “What We Become,” Michonne takes Virgil back to his mysterious island to reunite with his family. In exchange, Virgil promises weapons that could change the tide of the Whisperer War.
The second half of The Walking Dead season 10 began with many of our survivors trapped. Some in the confines of a cave filled with walkers, while others were caught in a spiral of suspicion and grief. All orchestrated at the hand of Alpha, who continues to prove the Whisperers are always watching, and one step ahead of the communities. Which includes the potentially deadly threat of having added Negan to their ranks.
Through this conflict and all they’ve lost, a few still hold onto hope, especially Eugene, who believes the mysterious voice he spoke with on the radio may lead to their world getting bigger once again.
But with the Whisperer War upon them, the collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whispers once and for all. Otherwise Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom.
Viewers can catch an all-new episode of Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick at 10:13 p.m. ET/PT, featuring The Walking Dead producer Scott M. Gimple and the hilarious Yvette Nicole Brown.
Season 4 of Ride with Norman Reed continues late night at 12:26 a.m. ET/PT on AMC. In Sunday’s all-new episode, “Japan with Milo Ventimiglia,” Norman Reedus and Milo Ventimiglia travel from Kyoto to Osaka Japan, taking in its cultural traditions and meeting some creative locals along the way.
Ride with Norman Reedus follows The Walking Dead star and motorcycle enthusiast Norman Reedus on epic road trips around the world. Each episode features Reedus and a riding companion – a fellow actor, musician or friend, exploring local culture and seeking adventure on the road. This season’s guests include Michael Rooker, Ryan Hurst, Milo Ventimiglia, Dom Rocket, Becky Goebel and Clifton Collins Jr. Ride with Norman Reedus is produced by Left/Right (This American Life, The Circus, James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction) with Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver and Anneka Jones serving as Executive Producers along with Reedus.
Season 5 of Better Call Saul continues on Monday, March 23rd at 9:00p.m ET/PT on AMC. In this week’s all-new episode, “Wexler v. Goodman,” Kim tries to pump the brakes on Jimmy’s latest scheme, but it may be too late to stop Saul. Mike turns the heat up on Lalo. Nacho attempts to enlist support from above.
In the 10-episode fifth season of Better Call Saul, Jimmy McGill’s (Odenkirk) decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman” creates unexpected and profound waves of change for those in his orbit. The series stars Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Michael Mando, Giancarlo Esposito, Patrick Fabian and Tony Dalton, and is executive produced by showrunner Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz. Better Call Saul garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over four seasons, has earned 32 Emmy® Award nominations, three Golden Globe® Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Awards, two Television Critics Association Awards and three AFI Awards for “TV Programs of the Year,” among many other Guild nominations.
Dispatches From Elsewhere continues on Monday, March 23rd at 10:10 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. In Monday’s all-new episode, “Clara,” The game begins to have a deeper impact on our team’s lives in the real world; the mystery of Clara’s disappearance deepens as the gang learns the full story; fresh clues take the game in a new direction.
Created by and starring Jason Segel, the ten-hour series is centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. This diverse foursome is brought together by chance – or perhaps it’s by design – when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. As they begin to accept the mysterious ‘Dispatches from Elsewhere’ challenges, they come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined, and their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic. Starring alongside Segel are Academy® and Emmy® Award-winner Sally Field, Academy Award®-nominee Richard E. Grant, multi-GRAMMY Award®-winner André Benjamin and rising star Eve Lindley.
The AMC Studios production is executive produced by Segel, Scott Rudin, showrunner Mark Friedman, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, Jeff Freilich and Alethea Jones.
