Fox UK Sets May Premiere Date For ‘Brockmire’ Season 3
Fox UK has handed a May premiere date to Hank Azaria comedy ‘Brockmire‘ which returns for its 3rd Season.
‘Brockmire’ stars Azaria (‘The Simpsons’, ‘Huff’) as Jim Brockmire, 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 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 Good Wife’), the strong-willed, hard-drinking owner and Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams – ‘Lab Rats’), the naïve but enthusiastic team intern.
When we return to the pitch for the 3rd season, the fall of Jim Brockmire hurtles on, as the once-legendary baseball announcer continues his clumsy attempt to make it back to the major leagues after his embarrassing public melt-down.
In Morristown, the only thing less dazzling than Jim’s career is the local baseball team, the Morristown Frackers. Owned by brash, hard-drinking Jules James, the team consists of a mismatched bunch of outcasts. With Jim recently becoming the announcer for the Oakland Athletics, will the already complex friendship between Jim and Jules be pushed to the limit?
Not only are friendships at stake, but careers are too. After Jim finally agreed to take rehab seriously following a crazy night out in the season two finale, will his newfound sobriety be jeopardised when a new announcer comes on the scene?
‘Brockmire‘ Season 3 premieres Thursday, 16th May at 11pm on Fox UK.
