IFC bowing Cock’d Gunns ‘rockumentary’ series

The worst band anyone's ever seen tries to become rock's next big thing in IFC's first original series.

IFC is premiering its first original series, the satirical 13-part ‘rockumentary’ Cock’d Gunns. Slotted for Saturdays at 9:30 pm ET, it will kick off with back-to-back half-hour episodes beginning Dec. 1 at 9 pm ET/PT. Showcase will also air the series in the same time slot as IFC.

Marni Shulman-Tucker, IFC’s VP of content, says the show ‘has the hilarity, lovable characters and cringe-worthy moments that will appeal to fans of Trailer Park Boys, This is Spinal Tap and everyone in between.’

The set-up is that lead singer/songwriter Reggie, bassist Dick and drummer Barry Ciccarelli are brothers living together for the first time since they were kids. They have formed the Cock’d Gunns – a rock band with no talent, no songs, no fans and no record deal, only high hopes. In the premiere episode, the Gunns play their first gig.
