On August 26, Video Services Corp. (VSC) will release on DVD the complete fourth season of Broadway Video and IFC's hit original comedy series Portlandia. Created, written by and starring Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers) and Carrie Brownstein (Wild Flag, Sleater-Kinney vocalist/guitarist), the Emmy-nominated and Peabody award-winning series returns with a new season of character-driven sketches taking place in the affable and absurd land of Portlandia. This 2-disc DVD set contains all 10 episodes and will be available for an SRP of $19.98.
Among the Armisen and Brownstein characters returning for the latest installment of this surreal yet affectionate portrait of Portland, Oregon are Dave and Kath, two of the town's most uptight residents who decide to give relaxing a try; Spyke and his girlfriend, Iris, who struggle through a hard time at a bad Thai restaurant; and Nina and Lance, who recover from the trauma of a deceased pet.
An eclectic collection of talented guests visit Portlandia on this season: Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live), Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia, Spider-Man), Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), singer-songwriter k.d. lang, Duff McKagan (Gun N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Silas Weir Mitchell (Grimm), Michael Nesmith (The Monkees), Mark Proksch (The Office), Maya Rudolph (The Way, Way Back, Bridesmaids), columnist Dan Savage, Nick Swardson (Reno 911!), jazz duo Tuck and Patti, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Olivia Wilde (Her, House)!
Fan favorites back from previous seasons include Ed Begley Jr. (Arrested Development, Pineapple Express), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Jeff Goldblum (The League), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, Franklin & Bash), Jason Sudeikis (Eastbound & Down) and director Gus Van Sant (Promised Land, Milk). Kyle MacLachlan (How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives) also returns as Portlandia's clueless but lovable Mayor.
Shot entirely on location in Portland, Oregon, the series is co-created and co-written by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, who is also the series director. Portlandia is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video.
