Season 2: Episode 2: Juan Likes Rice & Chicken

Chicken Out

Food Delivery Service Maple Is Offering a “Juan Likes Rice & Chicken”-Themed Dish

Dig into "Juan Likes Rice & Chicken" Wednesday at 10P on a brand new Documentary Now!.

Posted by on

Of all the delicacies featured in Documentary Now! — from the pre-speared fish in “Kunuk Uncovered” to the fishbowl margaritas in “Sandy Passage” — no meal dazzled the culinary world quite like the one featured in this week’s brand new episode, “Juan Likes Rice & Chicken.” But despite countless chicken-tenderizing air cannon tests and tree-beaten bags of rice, world-renowned chefs can’t seem to replicate the exceptional flavors of Juan’s signature dish — until now.

After teasing the menu item with a Juan-themed storefront, New York City’s chef-focused delivery service Maple now offers customers the closest approximation to the thrilling taste of Juan’s chicken and rice you can get without a plane ticket to Colombia.

Juan Likes Rice and Chicken Maple

Granted, Maple’s homage to Juan’s signature dish may be a little more advanced than his simple yet universally acclaimed combination of a cup of coffee, a banana split in half, rice with a little bit of butter and (on most days) chicken. But it’s still a taste of what earned Juan’s Rice & Chicken its Three-Star Michelin rating. Plus, you don’t have to climb a mountain to get it.

And as a bonus, customers who order the dish will get a complimentary link to watch “Juan Likes Rice & Chicken” before it premieres on Wednesday, September 21st at 10P on IFC.

If you’re in the New York City area, you can order the meal here. To learn more about Juan’s unique dish and restaurant, check out a clip from Wednesday’s brand new episode of Documentary Now!.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney To Host Spirit Awards

The Spirit Awards Air February 25 LIVE on IFC.

Posted by on

The 2017 Spirit Awards have finally found their frontmen: Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. And it’s no wonder. Just marvel in their splendid chemistry back when they appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang!:

The pair are prolific within the performing arts community: television (Kroll in The League and The Kroll Show, Mulaney as a writer of IFC’s own Documentary Now!), theater (including Broadway’s current Oh Hello Show), and stand-up comedy. In fact, it’s entirely possible that emceeing an awards show is one of the few remaining line items on their professional bucket lists.

It’s important to caveat this announcement, however. Unlike the bigger and more ubiquitously known awards shows, the Spirit Awards are not, well…boring. (We’re talking to you, Oscar.)

They’re funny. They’re honest. They have quality to match the red-carpet fanfare. And that’s alarmingly special. Last year’s show included some legitimately historic moments, like when transgender actress Mya Taylor won best supporting female, or Kate McKinnon’s hilarious and timely parody of Carol. See more highlights here to get the flavor of the Spirit Awards and read all about Film Independent to dig deeper.

The 2017 Spirit Awards air live February 25 at 5P ET exclusively on IFC.
