Remember back in March when we told you that we are turning comedian Marc Maron’s life and career and relationship and turning it into a television show? Good news: Not only has Maron’s autobiographical single-camera series for IFC wrapped its first ten-episodes, but it also has it’s very first teaser trailer. If you need a reminder, “Maron” centers around a guy who records a podcast from his garage, has comically tense interactions with the guests on his show and navigates his tense relationship with his much-younger girlfriend. Fans of Maron’s hugely successful WTF podcast and his standup comedy will recognize this concept. Trust us, we leave his neurosis intact, because untouched, Maron is uniquely fascinating, absolutely compelling and brutally funny.
Recipients of his WTF podcast recently received a note from Marc about taping the show. “All said, I only freaked out like two and half times and they were minor freak outs. They mostly revolved around shirts I thought were too tight. Not about the fact that we were shooting 9 to 15 pages of script a day and I was in every scene,” Maron wrote in his weekly “WTF” podcast e-mail. That attitude is reflected in the teaser trailer that we are releasing today. Watch it now and stay tuned for more updates about “Maron”:
“Maron” is premiering on IFC this spring.
