Janeane Garofalo and Russ Tamblyn are slated to guest star in IFC’s original comedy series, “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.” The six-episode series, which will feature all new music composed and performed by Johnny Marr of The Smiths, premieres on IFC on Friday October 1 and airs on subsequent Friday nights.
“We’re thrilled that Janeane, Russ and Johnny are attached to this series,” said Debbie DeMontreux, senior vice president of original programming for IFC in a press release. “Janeane and Russ are great actors and bring a level of hilarity to their characters that provides amusing and unexpected twists to the show. And, the original music Johnny has created adds a fun backdrop to the over-the-top antics and situations throughout the series.”
The show, created, written by and starring David Cross (“Arrested Development”), follows Todd Margaret (Cross), who bluffs his way into a senior sales position at the London office for the new energy drink Thunder Muscle. Will Arnett also guest stars.
