Watch the first trailers for IFC’s “Maron”

Marc Maron’s new sitcom based on his real life, Maron, debuts on May 3, 2013, on IFC.

The 10-episode first season of Maron follows the stand-up comedian behind the scenes of the WTF podcast ( he hosts in his garage, then out the garage to the house and everywhere else. Maron plays himself. Not playing themselves: Judd Hirsch as his father, Nora Zehetner as his girlfriend, Andy Kindler as his loyal friend (well, that one might not be acting) and Josh Brener as Maron’s assistant. How about the cats, though?

Guest stars this season include Mark Duplass, Illeana Douglas, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin, Judd Hirsch, Gina Gershon, Bobcat Goldthwait, Denis Leary, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Eric Stoltz and Danny Trejo.

Roll the clip!

They call this the first trailer, but some of it already aired on IFC last month during the channel’s broadcast of the Independent Spirit Awards. That said, check it out. Includes Leary, Douglas and look, Erik Charles Nielsen.

And here’s the earlier promo video. Lock the gates!

Much more to come about this in the month to come. Stay tuned.
