IFC released the first trailer for its faux documentary series starring Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, “Documentary Now!” on Wednesday.
A parody of famous documentaries, “Documentary Now!” stars Hader and Armisen as journalists who travel to Mexico to cover drug cartels, an indifferent ’70s rock band and a wealthy mother-daughter duo turned recluses.
“It’s a real specific kind of show, but I think for the … very thin amount of people that are looking for a very accurate fake documentary show, this is right up their alley,” executive producer Seth Meyers said of the show.
The series is created, written and executive produced by Hader, Armisen and fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Meyers. Lorne Michaels, Rhys Thomas and Andrew Singer of Broadway Video also serve as executive producers.
“Documentary Now!” debuts on IFC Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. ET.
