IFC Announces Two New Shows To Premiere In June
IFC has announced two new scripted shows will join the ranks of Portlandia and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. The channel has ordered 10 episodes each of Comedy Bang! Bang! and Bunk (working title), which will premiere back-to-back in June.
Comedy Bang! Bang! is a sketch-comedy show hosted by Scott Aukerman, who served as co-creator/director/producer of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis and as a writer/performer for Mr. Show. Aukerman adapted the new series from his podcast of the same name. Reggie Watts will serve as the in-house, one-man band of the show.
The other series announced, Bunk, will feature a gallery of guest comedians in a game show parody where they will perform comedy challenges a la Whose Line Is It, Anyway?. It was created by Ethan T. Berlin and Eric Bryant and will be hosted by comedian Kurt Braunohler.
