American Documentary (working title) (6×30; premieres in 2015)
American Documentary is a curated series of half-hour documentaries and biopics, each about a completely fictitious subject. Featuring a repertory-like ensemble cast, the episodes will explore important political figures, influential artists, titans of industry, and iconic cultural movements, all utterly fictional. Produced by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video Television and directed by SNL’s Rhys Thomas, American Documentary will be shot on location in the traditional documentary style.
IFC has ordered six half-hour episodes to premiere in 2015. Seth Meyers will executive produce the series along with Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, who will have recurring roles. Production is scheduled to begin later this year.
