Even the fourth time around life can be funny.
No trust in us? On August 26, pick up IFC’s hit original comedy series Portlandia: Season Four (Video Services Corp.) Created, written by and starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the Emmy-nominated and Peabody award-winning series returns with a new season of character-driven sketches taking place in the affable and absurd land of Portlandia. The two-disc set will keep you guffawing and giggling.
Among the Armisen and Brownstein characters returning for the latest installment of this surreal yet affectionate portrait of Portland, Oregon are Dave and Kath, two of the town's most uptight residents who decide to give relaxing a try; Spyke and his girlfriend, Iris, who struggle through a hard time at a bad Thai restaurant; and Nina and Lance, who recover from the trauma of a deceased pet.
An eclectic collection of talented guests visit Portlandia on this season: Tunde Adebimpe, Jello Biafra, Vanessa Bayer, Kirsten Dunst, Joshua Homme, singer-songwriter k.d. lang, Duff McKagan, Silas Weir Mitchell, Michael Nesmith, Mark Proksch, Maya Rudolph, columnist Dan Savage, Nick Swardson, jazz duo Tuck and Patti, Jeff Tweedy and Olivia Wilde.
Fan favorites back from previous seasons include Ed Begley Jr., Annie Clark, Jeff Goldblum, Kumail Nanjiani, Jason Sudeikis and director Gus Van Sant. Kyle MacLachlan also returns as Portlandia’s clueless but lovable Mayor.
Shot entirely on location in Portland, Oregon, the series is co-created and co-written by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, who is also the series director. Portlandia is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video.
