WINE LADIES, REJOICE!

IFC ACQUIRES NEW SEASON OF "BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW"

Season 3 of the All-Female, Sketch Comedy Series to Air on IFC in 2018

NEW YORK - October 25, 2017 - IFC announced today that it has acquired Season 3 of the all-female, sketch comedy series Baroness von Sketch Show. The network acquired Seasons 1 and 2 earlier this year from Banijay Rights, debuting both back-to-back this summer to strong critical acclaim. The Season 2 finale airs tonight at 11:00PM. Filming of Season 3 of Baroness von Sketch Show is underway in Toronto, Canada and new episodes will air on IFC in 2018.

"Carolyn, Meredith, Aurora and Jennifer have a devotion to red wine, dry shampoo and smart, relevant comedy that made us fall in love with their show the minute we saw it," said IFC President Jennifer Caserta. "The ladies have set a high bar as the first and only all-female sketch comedy troupe that also writes, produces and stars in their own show, so we are especially proud to bring their third season to the IFC audience which has clearly demonstrated they want more!"

Hailed as "fabulous" by The New York Times and "the best thing to come out of Canada since Ryan Gosling" by Vogue, Baroness von Sketch Show provides a fast-paced, satirical look at everyday lives. The female-based sketch comedy series, performed and written by Meredith MacNeill and award-winning Second City alumni Aurora Browne, Jennifer Whalen, and Carolyn Taylor, celebrates the absurd and mines the embarrassing, offering a witty take on everyday problems.

Each episode of Baroness von Sketch Show tackles both outrageous and totally relatable subjects as moms at a soccer game, marketing directed at women, office birthday parties, trying on jeans, women over 40 in the gym locker room, bachelorette parties and the phenomenon that is dry shampoo.

Baroness von Sketch Show is executive produced by Jamie Brown, Taylor, MacNeill, Browne and Whalen. Taylor also serves as showrunner. The series is produced by Frantic Films and originates on the CBC in Canada. It is distributed internationally by Banijay Rights. Season 3 will air on the CBC in 2018.
