TV’s biggest sports announcer has hit rock bottom – bottom of the ninth, that is. 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.

Brockmire originally appeared as a viral short video on the award­-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. The series is written by Joel Church­-Cooper (Undateable), directed by Tim Kirkby (Veep), and executive produced by Azaria, Church-­Cooper, Kirkby and Funny Or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell.
