Eastbound and Down
"Relief Pitcher Kenny Powers was poised to rule the Big Leagues, but two things got in the way: his fading fastball and his insufferable personality. After a spectacular career flame-out, Kenny came home to Shelby County, NC and picked up a job as a substitute gym teacher (mostly so his brother Dustin would stop threatening to kick him out). He's spent every moment since then cashing in the last of his dying fame while plotting his inevitable comeback... one beer at a time." -- HBO
Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Starring Danny McBride 'Pineapple Express'), Katy Mixon ('Four Christmases'), John Hawkes ('Deadwood') and a host of other talented comedians (including, on occasion, Mr. Ferrell), 'Eastbound & Down' was created by McBride along with two friends from film school: Jody Hill and Ben Best (the co-writer/director and co-writer of The Foot Fist Way, respectively).
