IFC RENEWS "MARON" FOR AN EXPANDED SECOND SEASON

NEW YORK, NY -Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - Boomer lives! And so does Maron on IFC. The network announced today the renewal of the critically acclaimed comedy series Maron for a second season with 13 all new half-hour episodes, up from 10, scheduled to premiere in 2014.

"In many ways, Marc is a perfect representation of IFC and our approach to comedy," said Jennifer Caserta, president and general manager of IFC. "He also seems to be in need of a less dysfunctional family, so we're happy he's returning to ours for an expanded second season."

Maron is an honest, comical look at the complicated man behind the "WTF" podcast, writer/comedian Marc Maron. The debut season followed his often misguided attempts to grow professionally as a comedian and emotionally with his estranged dad, Larry (Judd Hirsch) and unconventional new girlfriend, Jennifer (Nora Zehetner) while being aided by his clueless fan-boy assistant Kyle (Josh Brener). Infused with Marc's trademark relatable tone, the dark humored comedy has many more experiences to share with viewers next year.

Guest stars acting as pseudo therapists for Marc this past season included Mark Duplass, Illeana Douglas, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin, Gina Gershon, Bobcat Goldthwait, Ken Jeong, Sally Kellerman, Andy Kindler, Denis Leary, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Eric Stoltz and Danny Trejo.

Marc Maron is the creator, executive producer, writer and star 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.
