‘Documentary Now!’ Season 2 coming in September; Fred Armisen touring this fall
The second season of Fred Armisen and Bill Hader's IFC series Documentary Now! will be premiere September 14 at 10 PM Eastern/Pacific. The first episode, appropriately for this election year, will parody D.A. Pennebaker's The War Room (which detailed Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign). Here called "Bunker" it will feature Tabitha Soren reprising her MTV News anchor chair for this. Other documentaries being satirized: The Maysles' 1969 film Salesman (here called "Globesman") and Jiro Dreams of Sushi will become "Juan Likes Chicken and Rice." You can watch a couple clips from the "Bunker" episode, which below.
