IFC Delays ‘Documentary Now!’ Episode After WDBJ Shootings

IFC will delay an episode of parody series Documentary Now! that was to air Thursday night (Aug. 27) due to the murders of two journalists during a live broadcast Wednesday morning in Roanoke, Va., the network said.

The IFC series, which parodies documentaries, was planning to air a Vice parody Thursday night titled “DRONEZ: The Hunt for El Chingon.” In the episode, series stars Fred Armisen and Bill Hader play journalists who, despite dire warnings, travel to Juárez, Mexico to try to find the head of a drug cartel.

Instead, IFC will air what would have been next week’s episode, “Kunuk Uncovered,” this Thursday night at 10 p.m. The air date for “DRONEZ” has not been determined.
