Okay, we can hear you sucking in your breath in anticipation, because you have been waiting anxiously, chewing your fingernails, desperate for news of when the hilarious comedic stylings of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein would start lovingly skewering the people and values of Portland, Ore. Well, you’re period of waiting is almost over. Today IFC announced that the highly anticipated original comedy series will premiere on Friday, January 21 at 10:30 pm, ET/PT. Now stop biting your fingernails.

“Portlandia” is an original short-based comedy series stemming from the duo’s love of Portland and their work on the much-admired web series Thunderant. The show stars Armisen and Brownstein, alongside an assortment of guests including Kyle MacLachlan of “Sex & The City” and “Twin Peaks”, Aubrey Plaza of “Parks and Recreation”, Selma Blair, Heather Graham,, Portland-based director Gus Van Sant, and Portland’s real mayor Sam Adams. These stars will help illuminate the rich tapestry of characters that make up life in Portland: Bicycle rights activists; feminist bookstore owners; crafters who put birds on things; an organic farmer who turns out to be a cult leader; an adult hide-and-seek league; and a couple negotiating a “safe word.” (“Cacao!”)

The show will also spotlight musical talent and singer/songwriters Sarah McLachlan and Aimee Mann will guest star, alongside local Portland talent James Mercer (The Shins), Jenny Conlee and Colin Meloy (The Decemberists), and Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney).

Shot entirely on location in Portland, the series was created and written by Armisen, Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel of “Saturday Night Live.” Krisel is also the series’ director. The series is executive produced by SNL mastermind Lorne Michaels.

What are you waiting for? Go set your DVR now for January 21, 2011 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
