The Trailer Doesn’t Do Justice To The Awesomeness That Is Brockmire
My wife introduced me the BROCKMIRE this morning. The pilot made me remember how awesome a character actor Hank Azaria was. I’m guessing this will be on the list of my favorite comedies alongside It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and I’m Sorry.
It was a swing-and-a-miss for legendary baseball broadcaster Jim Brockmire ten years ago… but can he talk and drink his way back into the major leagues? Starring Hank Azaria, Amanda Peet and Tyrel Jackson Williams.

Brockmire (Hank Azaria) is a famed major league baseball announcer who suffers an embarrassing and very public meltdown live on the air after discovering his beloved wife’s serial infidelity. A decade later, Jim Brockmire decides to reclaim his career and love life in a small American rust belt town that has seen better days, calling minor league baseball games for the Morristown Frackers. The struggling team is led by Jules (Amanda Peet), the strong-willed, hard-drinking owner and Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams), the naïve but enthusiastic team intern.
