"MARON"

CREATED BY, STARRING AND BASED ON THE LIFE OF COMEDIAN & PODCASTER MARC MARON

Premieres Friday, May 3 at 10:00pm ET/PT On IFC

New York, NY - March 11, 2013 - IFC is bringing comedian and podcaster Marc Maron to the small screen this spring with a new ten episode scripted comedy series titled Maron. Based on Marc's life and successful WTF podcast (www.wtfpod.com), each half hour episode chronicles Marc's day-to-day struggle to maintain relationships other than the ones with his podcast audience and his beloved trio of cats. Maron premieres Friday, May 3 at 10:00pm ET/PT on IFC.

Marc stars as himself, and joining him is Judd Hirsch (Ordinary People, Damages, This Must Be the Place) as his father, Nora Zehetner (Mad Men, Grey's Anatomy) as his girlfriend, Andy Kindler (Bob's Burgers, Everybody Loves Raymond) as his loyal friend and Josh Brener (The Internship, Silicon Valley) as Marc's assistant.

Notable guest stars who will be appearing throughout the season include Mark Duplass (Your Sister's Sister, Safety Not Guaranteed), Illeana Douglas (Entourage, Ghost World), Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall, NewsRadio), Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe, How to Make It in America, Rescue Me), Bobcat Goldthwait (Jimmy Kimmel, Chappelle's Show, Esquire Magazine's Director Of the Year), Ken Jeong (Community, The Hangover), Denis Leary (Rescue Me, The Job), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Safety Not Guaranteed), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Party Down), Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction, Mask) and Danny Trejo (Sons of Anarchy, Machete).

In this debut season, Marc upsets any balance in his life with everything from a visit from his dysfunctional father living in an RV to complicated feelings about his ex-wife and various attempts at dating that continue to challenge his ability to commit. Yet his compulsive need for human connection is only matched with his uncanny ability to make disastrous choices. Consequences of which always end up as fodder for his popular WTF podcast. Whether dating a dominatrix, sponsoring a recently sober ex-con or tracking down an internet troll who blasts him on Twitter, all of Marc's life experiences are met with his unique brand of cynicism, self-obsession and heart.

"The role of Maron was complicated and challenging. I feel like I spent a lifetime preparing for it. I was definitely immersed in the character. I still am, actually. I don't think I can get out. I think that's what the show is about," Marc Maron commented.

Marc Maron is the creator, executive producer and writer of Maron. Apostle's Denis Leary and Jim Serpico are also executive producers, along with Michael Jamin, Sivert Glarum, Duncan Birmingham and Olivia Wingate. Maron is produced for IFC by Fox Television Studios. Series' directors include Academy Award(R)-winner Luke Matheny, who is a co-executive producer, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Robert Cohen.

Marc's upcoming memoir, Attempting Normal, will be released by Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Random House Publishing Group, on April 30. Available wherever books are sold.
