FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


WELCOME BACK TO
CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED

PORTLANDIA

FOR THE SECOND SEASON

Ten New Episodes of IFC's Acclaimed Comedy Series
Available September 25th on Blu-ray and DVD



LOS ANGELES, CA - Video Services Corp. (VSC) will release IFC's hit original comedy series, Portlandia Season Two, on Blu-ray and DVD on September 25, 2012. The Peabody award-winning and critically acclaimed series that presents a romanticized and dreamy rendering of Portland, Oregon through the eyes of Fred and Carrie (Fred Armisen of Saturday Night Live and Carrie Brownstein from Wild Flag and Sleater-Kinney) has been heralded as "hilariously offbeat" and an "astute comedy" by Entertainment Weekly, and"[a show] you shouldn't miss" by The Hollywood Reporter. Season Two is packed with new characters and special guest stars and the release has loads of extras not seen anywhere else.

Some of Portlandia's most loved and notable characters from Season One return for Season Two, including Portland's trusty but sometimes misguided Reggae bass playing Mayor (Kyle MacLachlan), Peter and Nance, an overly eco-¬conscious couple caught up in the organic and local food movement; Bryce Shivers and Lisa Eversman, an arty, obsessive couple who find a new trend to explore; and Toni and Candice, the former activist shopkeepers of the feminist bookstore Women and Women First.

New residents have also moved in for Season Two, including Doug and Claire, a couple whose lives spin out of control when they run out of new episodes of Battlestar Galactica and a struggling band who finds itself with an all too enthusiastic fan.

This season new guest stars include Jeff Goldblum, Sean Hayes, Penny Marshall, Jack McBrayer, Tim Robbins, Andy Samberg, Amber Tamblyn, and Kristen Wiig, as well as musicians Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Joanna Newsom, St. Vincent and Eddie Vedder.

Bonus features include behind-the-scenes Portlandia Live tour footage, creator commentaries, a bonus feminist bookstore scene, "Brunch Village: The Director's Cut," an excerpt from the new book Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors and the "Inside Portlandia" documentary special. A two-pack of Seasons One and Two is also available at an SRP of $29.95 through Video Services Corp. Shot entirely on location in Portland, Oregon, the series is directed, co-created and co-written by Jonathan Krisel and executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video.
