Funny or Die's new IFC miniseies The Spoils of Babylon is sounding better and better by the minute. Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire have signed on to star opposite Will Ferrell in the six-episode series, which is expected to debut in late 2013.

IFC's new show Maron starts next Friday, and in conjunction with it, they've launched a new web series called Maron in Space that sees comedian James Adomian (Comedy Bang Bang, Last Comic Standing) as Marc Maron, piloting a spacecraft with a crew and a bunch of cats onboard. All five episodes debuted online this morning. The first one's above, and the rest are embedded below. Created by Adomian and comedian John Roy, Maron in Space was directed by Chris VanArtsdalen and Jefferson Dutton from The Birthday Boys. The last episode features a surprise guest star that's impossible to guess.
Marc Maron's new IFC sitcom Maron is set to debut in less than a month, and the network just put out this brand new trailer, which features pretty much every actor in Hollywood, like Illeana Douglas, Judd Hirsch, Sally Kellerman, Anthony Jeselnik, Andy Kindler, Dave Foley, Denis Leary, Danny Trejo, Jeff Garlin, Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Ken Jeong, Adam Scott, and a dozen more people who flashed by too quickly for me to notice.
Here's the first full-length trailer to Marc Maron's new TV show Maron, which starts up Friday, May 3rd, at 10 on IFC. Maron's guests stars this year include Mark Duplass, Illeana Douglas, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin, Judd Hirsch, Gina Gershon, Bobcat Goldthwait, Denis Leary, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Eric Stoltz, Danny Trejo, and a bunch of cat actors.
Here's a new video from IFC's Chris Gethard, explaining how his small speaking role in Iron Man 3 was cut and he made this funny video to prevent himself from losing his mind. The movie's release is still four days away, so it's not too late to start an internet campaign to get the footage put back in, right?
A high school student was forbidden from using a quote from comedian Chris Gethard in her high school yearbook because his last name spells out the words "get hard," so Gethard visited her to get to the bottom of things right in this video for the IFC network's adopted comic program. Unfortunately, the video doesn't conclude with Gethard ambushing the high school yearbook teacher with a camera crew to discuss the injustice, but hopefully, somebody will set said teacher straight someday.
"Lost Roles" is a weekly column taking a different actor, comedian, or writer each week and examining all of the movies and TV shows they almost made but didn't, for one reason or another. This week, we turn our attention to Marc Maron, host of the wildly-popular podcast WTF and the star/creator of the upcoming IFC series Maron.
After making his TV debut in 1989, Maron struggled for two decades to surpass a certain level of fame. Although he made regular TV appearances and was a successful stand-up, it took his pioneering podcast to make Maron a household name. Throughout his long journey to the top, Marc Maron [...]
Maron, the new sitcom created by and starring stand-up comedian and podcasting pioneer Marc Maron will debut on IFC Friday, May 3rd, the cable network announced today. The show is based on Maron's life and will see him playing a fictionalized version of himself. IFC also revealed a list of actors who will have recurring roles on the show, including Judd Hirsch as Maron's father, Maron's fellow stand-up Andy Kindler as his comedian friend, Nora Zehetner (Grey's Anatomy) as his young girlfriend, and Josh Brener (Glory Daze) as his assistant. All of these actors will appear in just 2-3 episodes each, with Marc Maron being the only actor [...]
“It's based on the life I'm living now, or maybe a couple years ago,” says Marc Maron of his new IFC show, Maron. It's in this slightly alternate universe that Maron exists; his podcast is picking up steam, he's adjusting to life after his second divorce, and he's learning from the famous comedians who stop by his garage to share their wisdom. The show features an excellent collection of his celebrity comedian pals, including the always amazing Dave Foley as an inebriated version of himself in the pilot. I recently got the chance to talk to Maron about playing himself, finding closure, and helping out the next generation of [...]
Marc Maron's IFC sitcom Maron is set to debut next Friday, but the network uploaded a full episode of the show to their YouTube channel today, which you can watch in its entirety above.

The network is set to launch a 20-episode second season of Comedy Bang Bang and new comedies Maron, The Birthday Boys, and The Spoils of Babylon later this year, and they're showing no signs of slowing down their comedy output. In addition to a pilot centered on musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates, IFC has ordered scripts for Stupid Life, co-created by Chris Gethard and Tom Scharpling and starring Gethard; Two Idiots, which comes from co-creator Megan Mullally and follows a pair of rich women who grew up in a [...]
Here's a new video from The Birthday Boys, a sketch group who were just given a TV show by IFC.
