The Backstage Beat is glad that one of our must see shows is back on tonight. IFC’s Portlandia!

This Friday, January 6th at 10pm ET/PT, IFC is launching the live, dual-screen experience, IFC Sync, in conjunction with the second season premiere of IFC’s hit comedy series, Portlandia. Portlandia  creators, writers and stars Fred Armisen (SNL) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag) will be online with users sharing their experiences and stories from the show and answering questions, throughout its debut this Friday.

IFC Sync is an online interactive companion that engages users in a conversation around what’s airing on the network in real time, and allows users to chat with show personalities, view video clips, answer show-specific trivia questions, and earn points to win real and virtual prizes. IFC Sync will be enabled during each of Portlandia’s ten premiere episodes, with future conversations hosted by an IFC moderator.
