Arrogant, washed-up big league pitcher Kenny Powers thought he'd scored a shot at a comeback in the majors, but the offer turned out to be bogus.
Now, having left his North Carolina life behind, he's making a fresh start in a small Mexican town, where he can both nurse his wounds and bless the locals with his awesomeness.
Starring Danny McBride, Eastbound & Down tells the story of Kenny Powers, who used to be a star pitcher until his self-destructive behavior knocked him out of Major League Baseball.
In the first season of the series, he returned home to North Carolina to teach Phys Ed at the middle school he once attended, and eventually scored another big-league job offer - or so he imagined.
Season 2 also stars Steve Little as Stevie Janowski, the high-school band teacher who idolizes Kenny; Michael Peña as Sebastian Cisneros, owner of the local Mexican baseball team; Ana de la Reguera as sultry lounge singer Vida; Marco Rodriguez as Roger Hernandez, manager of the baseball team; Efren Ramirez as his new neighbour Catuey; Lisa De Razzo as Maria, another new neighbour; Deep Roy as Aaron, one of Kenny's new sidekicks; and Joaquin Cosio as Hector, Kenny's other new sidekick.
Eastbound & Down is executive produced by Jody Hill, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy, Adam McKay and Stephanie Laing.
