MyCityByNight are big fans of a good TV series and let it be said, this is one of our favouites!
Now for those of you that havent seen Eastbound and Down, let me tell you, this is GENIUS and HILARIOUS!
Created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (aka LEGENDS), this half-hour comedy follows a former MLB relief pitcher returning home to Shelby County, NC following a spectacular career flame out, accepting a job as a substitute gym teacher.
Kenny Powers (McBride) was poised to rule the major league when his fading fastball and insufferable personality began to overshadow his game. Ejected from the sport after accusations of steroid use led to a major on-camera meltdown, Powers travels back to his hometown in North Carolina and reluctantly begins working as a substitute gym while living with his brother Dustin (John Hawkes). But while Kenny may be down, he’s certainly not out, and despite the fact that his fame has all but dried up, he begins plotting his inevitable comeback between repeated rounds of heavy drinking.
