‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret’ Series One Hits DVD In Late December!

‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret’ Series One Hits DVD In Late December!

He has created some of the most out-there comedy of the last decade; now David Cross has a daringly insane show of his own — The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret! With Series Two About to Begin on IFC, the Initial Run of Breathtakingly Funny Episodes Is Coming to DVD From MPI on December 27, 2011.

Todd Margaret (David Cross, Arrested Development, Mr. Show) is an office temp who lies his way into becoming the UK sales director for North Korea-made Thunder Muscle energy drink, despite not knowing the first thing about England….or sales. With his assistant Dave (Blake Harrison, The Inbetweeners) only encouraging his bungled efforts and his brash boss Brent Wilts (Will Arnett, Arrested Development) breathing down his neck, Todd’s one bad decision after another causes his future in sales to look grim. But just maybe he’ll be able to sell himself to café owner Alice (Sharon Horgan, Pulling) before his career and life fall into ruin.

Cross and Shaun Pye (Extras) created and co-wrote this delightfully awkward series where things for Todd Margaret just get worse and worse and worse.

Series 1 DVD Will Be Released December 27 From MPI Home Video With Bonus Features Including Commentary, Cast Q&As, Deleted Scenes and Bloopers! Series 2 of the IFC Original Comedy Premieres Friday, January 6, 2012 @ 10:30 PM!
