IFC will add to its scripted series lineup with projects from Dana Gould and Hank Azaria, the network said Monday.
Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation) will executive produce and write Stan Against Evil, a comedy horror series featuring the teaming of a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff and the tough and beautiful new sheriff who fight against a plague of unleashed demons that have been haunting the town, according to network officials.
Azaria will star in Brockmire, as a famed major league baseball announcer who suffers a very public meltdown live on the air but looks to regain his career by calling minor league baseball games in a small town.
“Demons and disgrace are at the forefront of IFC’s new comedy strategy," said Caserta in making the announcement. "And there’s no one we’d rather be in bed with – or save small towns with - than Hank and Dana. One of the hallmarks of IFC’s success is the exceptional caliber of creative genius that we get to partner with, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be making these shows.”
