BRIDGET EVERETT RECORDS NEW BROCKMIRE-INSPIRED VERSION OF HER SONG, "ROCK BOTTOM" FOR SEASON FINALE PROMO
Hitting rock bottom has never sounded so good. Inspired by IFC's hit original comedy Brockmire, the acclaimed comedian, actress and singer Bridget Everett has recorded a new version of her blues song "Rock Bottom," featuring customized lyrics highlighting the booze-soaked antics of baseball announcer Jim Brockmire, played by Hank Azaria. The song is featured in an all-new season-finale promo, now airing on IFC.
In the upcoming final two episodes of Season 2, Brockmire hits a new low (although he'd never admit it) and gives in to the sinful temptations of the Big Easy, despite his friends and family holding an intervention for him... at a bar of all places. Tune-in to IFC Wednesday, June 13 for the penultimate episode, "Caught in a Rundown," and catch the Season 2 Finale, "In the Cellar" on Wednesday, June 20. Brockmire airs weekly at 10PM, but will hiatus next week so Jim Brockmire (@BrockmireIFC) can live tweet the spectacle of the NBA Finals.

Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire, a famed major league baseball announcer who suffered a notorious public breakdown after stumbling upon his wife's infidelity - a breakdown so bad that "Brutal Brockmire" became a viral internet meme. Season 1 began a decade later, as Brockmire looked to reclaim his career, reputation, and love life. He eventually found happiness calling games for the Morristown Frackers, the underdog minor league baseball team, alongside his girlfriend Jules (Amanda Peet). Season 2 kicked off one year later, with Brockmire chasing an opportunity to call games in New Orleans. He enjoys new found success as a top podcaster with his show "Brock Bottom," while living with his co-dependent friend Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams)... and partying harder than ever. Still trying to still reclaim his career as a major league sportscaster, Brockmire cannot resist the temptations of the Big Easy, while pining for the girl he left behind in Morristown, PA and struggling to find his purpose in life.
Brockmire originally appeared as a viral short video on the award-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. Season 2 is directed by Mo Marable and executive produced by Azaria, Joel Church-Cooper, Marable, Tim Kirkby and Funny Or Die's Mike Farah and Joe Farrell. Brockmire Season 1 is available to watch on Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, and IFC platforms. IFC renewed Brockmire for two additional seasons, slated to air in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
