Documentary Now!, IFC’s fake documentary show helmed by SNL natives Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, has released a trailer for its second season.
Season two will spoof films such as the Talking Heads music documentary Stop Making Sense, presidential election documentary The War Room, and food doc Jiro Dreams of Sushi, as IndieWire reported.
Armisen and Hader will also pay homage to Spalding Gray’s Swimming to Cambodia and the Robert Evans doc, The Kid Stays in the Picture, which chronicles a filmmaker as he makes terrible Oscar-bait features.
Every episode of the show is shot documentary-style and intends to tell “some of the most important stories that didn’t actually happen.” Season one was a satirical look at films such as Grey Gardens, about the aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who resided in East Hampton. The season also mocked the Nanook Revisited, the 1990 doc about the 1922 partly staged documentary set in the Canadian arctic, Nanook of the North.
The trailer opens with Helen Mirren reintroducing the “long-running” documentary showcase and gives us a glimpse of the absurdity to come in the upcoming season.
Documentary Now! returns to IFC on Sept. 14 at 10 p.m. ET.
