With Portlandia coming to a close relatively soon, IFC casted a wide net to find their next scripted hit.
Nearly all these shows are high concept and include such intriguing elements as a “botched cyborg”, a kill list, a struggling dominatrix, West African charities that have gotten out of hand, and rigging an election.
Attached to these projects are the talents of Gabe Delahaye, Josh Ruben, Emily Flake, Elna Baker, Jocelyn DeBoer/Dawn Luebbe, Matteo Lane, and more.
Some of these shows have script orders while others are just incubating in IFC’s Comedy Crib initiative. In any case, IFC has a lot on their plate, especially for a cable network.
With all of this in mind, don’t be surprised if you see a much different looking IFC with a bunch of new shows in the next year or two.
