Plot Synopsis

Based on "A Legend in the Booth with Hank Azaria," an episode of Funny or Die's GAMECHANGERS web series, BROCKMIRE is a half-hour comedy series that centers on Jim Brockmire, a famed major league baseball announcer who suffers an embarrassing and very public meltdown live on the air after discovering his beloved wife's serial infidelity. Now, a decade later, Brockmire decides to reclaim his career and love life in a small town, calling minor league baseball for the Morristown Frackers, which is owned by the strong-willed Jules. IFC premiered BROCKMIRE on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back episodes. Earlier in the day, IFC renewed BROCKMIRE for a second season.
On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, IFC premiered the season finale of BROCKMIRE, immediately following a 3.5-hour marathon (6:30-10pm) of encore episodes. In the season ender, "It All Comes Down to This," Brockmire must choose between staying in Morristown or returning to the major leagues. Six weeks earlier -- on April 5 -- IFC renewed BROCKMIRE for a second season of eight episodes, set to debut in 2018.
