We love “Portlandia.” We think Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s show is pretty much the best and the critics agree too. Over the course of its three seasons, the series has won a Peabody Award, been nominated for Emmys® for writing and directing, and attracted the best guest stars around, including Tim Robbins, Andy Samberg,Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Penny Marshall, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and so many more. We think the show deserves all the awards and that’s why we are hitting the campaign trail and hoping to put a bird on the Emmys®.
When you are campaigning there is no one you want in your corner more than the most famous political strategist in the world,James Carville. So we recruited him and he is now Team Portlandia and if you know anything about James Carville, it’s that he likes to back a winner. In the campaign video, filmed at IFC Campaign Headquarters, Carville warns voters,“We’re going to fight. We’re going after the big shows in New York. We’re going after the big shows in Hollywood. We’re going right out in to the Pacific Ocean.” Got that voters? We’re serious.
