Seeso just announced two new projects. First up is a season 2 renewal for The UCB Show, which will be filmed during the Del Close Marathon this weekend in New York. In addition to The UCB Show renewal, Seeso is also celebrating DCM by exclusively releasing the documentary Thank You, Del: The Story of the Del Close Marathon today. The film premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Here’s more on the documentary from Seeso’s press release:
Del Close was not a household name, but any comedy enthusiast is aware of his impact. From Bill Murray to Chris Farley to Amy Poehler, many of the most famous comedians consider him their mentor. Fifteen years after Del Close’s death, thousands of Improv students, comedy fans, actors, and successful comedians gather to celebrate the most important person in modern comedy that no one knows in Thank You, Del: The Story of the Del Close Marathon. The film is exclusively available on Seeso platforms beginning today, and also features Louis CK, Nick Kroll, Michael Cera, Sasheer Zamata, Mike Birbiglia, Adam McKay and many more.
