LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Building on its strategy of showcasing off-center comedies that appeal to young men, IFC has picked up reruns of Judd Apatow’s short-lived comedies “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared.”
The two cult favorites, which lasted for just 18 and 17 episodes, respectively, helped launch the careers of Jay Baruchel, Jenna Fischer, James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel.
“Freaks and Geeks” will premiere on IFC on Friday at 11 p.m., and encore on Mondays at 11 p.m. and Sundays at 10 p.m. “Undeclared” will debut on IFC this fall. A previously unaired episode of “Undeclared” will make its U.S. TV debut on IFC.
