Two TV Land Comedies Move to Sundays This June; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 18, 2016)

The Jim Gaffigan Show Impastor

This summer, TV Land is giving you a reason NOT to dread the end of the weekend! Beginning Sunday nights in June, The Jim Gaffigan Show and Impastor will return for their second seasons. With hilarious guest star turns and cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Zachary Quinto, Alec Baldwin, Raven Symoné, John Mulaney, Macaulay Culkin, John Mulaney, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Judy Gold, Carrot Top, Gilbert Gottfried, Artie Lange, Nickelback, Perez Hilton, Tyler Oakley and many more, "one of summer TV's bright spots" (People), The Jim Gaffigan Show," will return for season two on (appropriately) Father's Day - Sunday, June 19 at 10:00pm ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes. The series is a fictionalized version of stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan's real life as he navigates fatherhood, his career and an incurable obsession with food, and this season will get even more inside Jim's head, looking at all his neuroses about being in the ever-critical limelight and his marriage to wife Jeannie (Ashley Williams) and children. The comedy also stars Michael Ian Black ("Wet Hot American Summer") as Jeannie's friend, Daniel, who not-so-subtly dislikes Jim, and Adam Goldberg (No Way Jose) as Jim's friend and fellow comedian, Dave. The show was co-created by Peter Tolan (Rescue Me) and executive producer Jim Gaffigan, and is also executive produced by Jeannie Gaffigan. Alex Murray and Sandy Wernick of Brillstein Entertainment Partners also executive produce. JAX Media's Tony Hernandez will executive produce for TV Land. The season will have 12 episodes.

On Impastor, which will return with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, June 26th at 10:30pm ET/PT, we left Buddy Dobbs (Michael Rosenbaum, Smallville) in a cliffhanger season finale. His past had finally started to catch up with him when Damien, the man he owed money to, came calling. The series follows Buddy, a slacker with gambling debt as he tries to escape his old life, by assuming the identity of a gay pastor, Jonathan Barlow, who died while trying to save Buddy from jumping off a bridge. Buddy assumed Barlow's life and relocated to the small town of Ladner where he serves as the town pastor. With the new identity, he thought he could escape his old life, but he was wrong. Impastor also stars Sara Rue (Less Than Perfect), Mircea Monroe (Episodes), David Rasche (Sledge Hammer!), and Mike Kosinski (Second City). The show, which will have a 10-episode second season, is executive produced by Christopher Vane and Rosenbaum, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men) and Rob Greenberg (How I Met Your Mother).
