IFC’s Emmy®-nominated comedy Portlandia has busted out of Portland, out of television even, to enter our national vocabulary as shorthand for a 21st century state of mind. Co-creators Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel’s all-inclusive world identifies and embraces the humor (and often the absurdity) in trends from across our culture. Through a variety of overly well-intentioned characters, this season delves deeper into the lives of the Portlandia residents we’ve grown to know and love.
Guest stars this season include Steve Buscemi, Justin Long, Seth Meyers, Paul Reubens, Olivia Wilde and more.
Shot entirely in Portland, Portlandia is created by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel. They also serve as writers, along with Karey Dornetto and Graham Wagner. Portlandia is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video. Jonathan Krisel and guest directors Steve Buscemi and Daniel Gray Longino direct season 5.
