‘Documentary Now!’ Is Doing A Parody Of ‘Wild Wild Country’ Starring Michael Keaton‰ÛÒAnd We’re So Ready 🙌

Documentary Now!, a mockumentary series from Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, Rhys Thomas and Lorne Michaels, has really been on its A-game lately.

The series parodies critically acclaimed documentaries by satirizing their style and using a fictitious, though oddly similar, subject.  

According to a recent press release from the Independent Film Channel, an upcoming two-part episode will take on Wild, Wild Country, a Netflix documentary about controversial Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, his assistant Ma Anand Sheela, and their followers in a closed off community, called Rajneeshpuram, located in Wasco County, Oregon.

Lorne Michaels already took a jab at the series on SNL this past April:

The name of the satire piece will be Batsh*t Valley, and “follows Father Ra-Shawbard (Wilson), a self-proclaimed spiritual leader who, with the help of his loyal and strong-willed assistant Ra-Sharir (Zadegan), creates a commune of devoted followers in the small town of Chinook, Oregon in the 1980s. When the activities of the Shawbardite commune become public, FBI agent Bill Doss (Keaton) takes it upon himself to reveal the truth about their peculiar leader,” according to the IFC.

The third season of Documentary Now! will premiere on February 20th, 2019, with both episodes broadcast back to back.

Get yourselves ready!
