Earlier tonight, I watched the first two episodes of “Brockmire”, a show starring Hank Azaria and Amanda Peet. Azaria, created the show and character based on an alcoholic former major league broadcaster that lost it on air after walking in on his wife having sex with multiple partners. He went on a rant that was pretty sexually explicit on air rant and obviously lost his job.
10 years pass, he “chases women like a Kennedy”, and it appears he might drink like one too, but Peete owns a nowheresville independent baseball team and hires/tricks him into becoming their PA announcer with free top shelf liquor and sleeping with her (non contractual) as perks.
It has a bit of a Kenny Powers/”Eastbound & Down “ feel to it with a good mixture of comedy, lewdness and baseball.
I read that it has been renewed for a 2nd season on IFC. Sounds like good news to me.
