IFC Orders Comedy Series ‘Brockmire,’ ‘Stan Against Evil’ From Hank Azaria, Dana Gould

IFC has given straight-to-series orders to two comedies, Hank Azaria’s “Brockmire” and “Stan Against Evil,” from “The Simpsons” alum Dana Gould.

Both shows were picked up for eight episodes.

“Stan Against Evil” revolves around a disgruntled sheriff of a New England town, built upon the site of a witch burning ground, who is forced to retire but winds up teaming with his female successor to fight off a plague of demons. Dana Gould is writing and exec producing with Tom Lassally for Radical Media. Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes are also exec producing. The series, which is just starting the casting process, is targeted to debut late this year.

“Brockmire,” from Funny or Die, is based on a character long-nurtured by Azaria and previously featured in a 2010 Funny or Die short video. Azaria plays a veteran baseball announcer who returns to the booth for a minor league team 10 years after he suffered an on-air meltdown.  Joel Church-Cooper (“Undateable) is writing with Tim Kirkby directing. Azaria, Church-Cooper, Kirkby and Funny Or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell are exec producing. “Brockmire” is targeted to debut early next year.

“Demons and disgrace are at the forefront of IFC’s new comedy strategy,” said IFC president Jennifer Caserta. “And there’s no one we’d rather be in bed with — or save small towns with — than Hank and Dana.”
