An episode from the third season of IFC’s Documentary Now! Original Cast Album: Co-op is inspired by Original Cast Album: Company, the 1970 D.A. Pennebaker documentary that follows the strenuous overnight cast recording of Stephen Sondheim’s hit musical.

Documentary Now!’s Original Cast Album: Co-op follows producers Benedict Juniper (Taran Killam), Simon Sawyer (John Mulaney) and Howard Pine (James Urbaniak) overseeing the recording for the cast album of the musical Co-op. The star-studded cast of Co-op includes Kenny (Alex Brightman), Larry (Richard Kind), Patty (Paula Pell) and Dee Dee (Renee Elise Goldsberry).
Plot
From the team that brought you Has Anyone Ever Told You You'd Look Better as a Brunette?, comes Co-op, the ill-fated Broadway show that opened and closed on the same night amid disastrous reviews.

Written by Simon Sawyer and directed by Howard Pine, the musical comedy centers around a cast of characters who all work, live or want to live in the same co-op, including Robbie the Doorman, Donna, the mistress of a tenant, Danny, the single guy just trying to get through the holidays, and Annie the tennis coach who dreams of living in the building.
Premiere
