Guest stars in season two include Becky Ann Baker, Carrie Preston and Dreama Walker.  

Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire, a famous major league baseball announcer who suffered a very public breakdown after learning of his wife’s infidelity. Season 1 began a decade later, as Brockmire began calling games for the minor league Morristown Frackers.  

Season two sees Brockmire with a popular podcast, called “Brock Bottom.” Says IFC, “Trying to still reclaim his career as a top sportscaster, Brockmire indulges in the sinful temptations of the Big Easy, pines for his ex-girlfriend in Morristown, Pa., and struggles to find his purpose in life.”
