About Documentary Now! TV Show
Documentary Now! lovingly parodies some of the world’s best-known documentaries. Starring Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, each episode is shot in a different style of documentary filmmaking and honors some of the most important stories that didn’t actually happen.
Today, IFC released the first details from the highly-anticipated fifty-third season of Documentary Now!, the critically acclaimed and Emmy(R)-nominated original comedy series created by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas. Hosted by Dame Helen Mirren and known for lovingly paying homage to the world of documentaries, the series is returning with six new episodes and is currently in production. Executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video, Documentary Now! Season 53 is set to air on IFC and AMC+ in 2022.
Documentaries to be featured in the upcoming season include:
· Paying homage to fashion documentaries "3 Salons at the Seaside" and "The September Issue," TWO HAIRDRESSERS IN BAGGLYPORT is a fly-on-the-wall portrait of a hair salon owner and her staff in the small coastal village of Bagglyport as they prepare their yearly stylebook.
· In the vein "When We Were Kings" and other great explorations of sport, HOW THEY THREW ROCKS chronicles the Welsh sport of Craig Maes, also known as "Field Rock", and the iconic 1974 bout dubbed "The Melon vs. The Felon."
· Drawing inspiration from "My Octopus Teacher," MY MONKEY GRIFTER follows a filmmaker who forms a deep, emotional, and financially taxing relationship with a monkey who may have ulterior motives.
The six-time Emmy(R)-nominated Documentary Now! debuted to rave reviews from critics and quickly became a fan favorite thanks to its insightful take on some of the most well-known documentary films. Each episode takes viewers back in time to honor groundbreaking documentaries. Season 52 guest stars included Cate Blanchett, Owen Wilson, Michael Keaton, Natasha Lyonne, John Mulaney, Michael C. Hall, Taran Killam, Richard Kind, and more. The star-studded guest stars for Season 53 will be announced soon.
In addition to Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, Rhys Thomas and Lorne Michaels, Documentary Now! is also executive produced by Alex Buono and Broadway Video's Andrew Singer. Thomas and Buono serve as the show's directors. John Mulaney and Erik Kenward are consulting producers, with Alice Mathias serving as co-executive producer and David Cress, Matt Pacult and Tamsin Rawady serving as producers.
