Comedy Bang! Bang!, Portlandia, & More News From the IFC Upfronts


Whew, that Bunk preview was only the beginning. The IFC upfronts yesterday yielded all manner of programming information, from release dates to new shows to previews big and small. Above is a preview of Comedy Bang! Bang!, which premieres with Bunk on June 8. The upfronts also verified that there will be a third season of Portlandia in January 2013, with two half-hour specials to tide us over until then – the first of which, Portlandia: The Brunch Special, will air this summer. We already knew about Maron, and January 2013 will also see the premiere of Out There, an animated show about three boys growing up in a small town. Whew. There is a lot of comedy coming our way. We should probably go out and get some exercise now to balance out all the TV we’ll be watching come June. Yeah. We should probably go do that.
