NBC renews 'Making It' with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman for season 2
The second season renewal is certainly a result of its debut success. 'Making It' earned a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.3 million viewers overall in its debut telecast.
NBC is ordering a second season of its newest hit series, 'Making It,' from Universal Television Alternative Studio. Hosted by 'Parks and Recreation' alums and best friends Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, 'Making It' is a uniquely lighthearted competition series that celebrates the creativity and craftiness in all of us. "We’re sew excited to be 'Making It' again," said Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. "We promise season two will have you glued to your seat." Don't miss the puns, everyone.
Of the concept, Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment said, "Seeing firsthand the imagination of a true craftsman and, literally, watching them create something out of nothing is pure gold." He added, "Amy and Nick’s longtime friendship and affection for one another brings the show to a whole other level of fun and we look forward to seeing what season two will bring."
"We set out to make a boundlessly affirmative and inspiring show, and we are thrilled with the way viewers and the press have embraced it," said Meredith Ahr, President, Universal Television Alternative Studio. "Amy and Nick bring creativity, leadership and comedic brilliance to everything they do and we can’t wait to team up with them again and shine a light on a new group of talented makers," she added.
The second season renewal is certainly a result of its debut success. 'Making It' earned a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.3 million viewers overall in "Live+7 days." Its debut became the most-watched premiere of a new summer series on the Big 4 networks this year. Through its three episodes, 'Making It' has definitely made quite the impression on ABC-CBS time slots, winning across every key demographic.
In this competition, eight of the most talented makers from across the country have taken on a variety of handmade projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and expert judges Simon Doonan and Dayna Isom Johnson.
Poehler and Offerman both share a love and passion for craftsmanship, albeit from different perspectives. Poehler is a self-proclaimed crafting novice who has long harbored a secret appreciation for those who can imagine and execute incredible things by hand. Offerman is a New York Times best-selling author in the woodworking space and is well known for his love for making a variety of objects himself.
