‘Documentary Now!’ Season 2 Trailer Takes on Politics, ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’, & Talking Heads

The trailer for Documentary Now! Season 2 has landed online. The half-hour comedy series hails from executive producers Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Rhys Thomas, and Seth Meyers, with each episode parodying a genre of documentary filmmaking. Season 1 took on Grey Gardens, Vice, and a music documentary following a Blue Oyster Cult-esque band called the "Blue Jean Committee", and Season 2 looks even better. The second season of the series will tackle the 1993 documentary The War Room, which chronicled Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, as well as Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the 1969 doc Salesman, a concert documentary take on the Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense, and a two-part season capper on The Kid Stays in the Picture.

‘Documentary Now!’ Season 2 Clip: Bill Hader and Fred Arimsen Take on Political Campaigns

One of the most delightful—and refreshing—additions to the TV landscape in the last few years is the IFC comedy series Documentary Now!. The brainchild of Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas is based on a conceit that I’m still kind of shocked actually made it to television: each episode is a parody of a famous documentary. The first season took on such classics as Grey Gardens and The Thin Blue Line, with Hader and Armisen taking the lead roles in each episode, and the result was some of the funniest comedy filmmaking we’ve seen in years. And the best part about the series is that although a familiarity with the documentary being "spoofed" enhances the comedy, it’s not necessary to still find the show unbelievably funny. READ MORE...
