Portlandia: Season One

IFC and Broadway Video's original short-based comedy series Portlandia, starring Fred Armisen (SNL) and Carrie Brownstein (vocalist/guitarist, Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag). Each episode's character-based shorts draw viewers into "Portlandia," the creators' dreamy and absurd rendering of Portland, Oregon.

Season One inhabitants include: the owners of a feminist book store; a militant bike messenger; an artsy couple who attach cut-outs of birds to everything ("put a bird on it!"); an organic farmer who turns out to be a cult leader; and a couple negotiating a safe word to help govern their love life.

Guest stars include Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Sex and The City), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Selma Blair (Legally Blonde), Heather Graham (The Hangover), Jason Sudeikis (SNL), Gus Van Sant (Milk) and singer/songwriters Aimee Mann and Sarah McLachlan.

Shot entirely on location in Portland, the series was created and written by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel (SNL, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!). The series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels.

Includes all six season one episodes.
