Former Slater-Kinney rocker Carrie Brownstein and SNL funnyman Fred Armisen have been doing sketches together as the duo Thunderant for a few years, and now, they’re getting their own show on IFC. Called Portlandia, a series that visits the wacky folks of Portland, OR. The show, which will go into production next month, will feature guest appearances by Parks and Rec‘s Aubrey Plaza and Twin Peaks‘ Kyle MacLachlan, and will be produced by Lorne Michaels. Interested in what Portlandia will entail? Says IFC:
In the series’ premiere, viewers will meet the owners of a feminist book store; a militant bike messenger; an artsy couple who put cut-outs of birds on everything; and a punk rock couple negotiating a “safe word” to help govern their love life.
We’ll be waiting impatiently to check it out!
