Season 02, Episode 01 – “ Globesmen”

A different and interesting look at the 1992 Ohio Gubernatorial campaign.

From the minds of Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Seth Meyers comes a new new series that looks back on 50 years of excellence and integrity in documentary filmmaking. See Fred and Bill investigate drug cartels, join an indifferent ‘70s rock band, reenact Iceland’s annual Al Capone Festival, take part in a dramatic exposé of the world’s first documentary about the Inuit and much more.

A tribute to the 1968 Maysles documentary “Salesman” that followed a wearied quartet of door-to-door Bible salesmen, “Globesmen” shares a similar story about four hard-working business men trying their best to sell globes to a community of people who find them too expensive and ultimately prefer atlases. Feeling pressure from their regional manager, and dealing with the constant rejection from customers, the salesmen do anything they can to reinvent the globe as a need-to-have household item.
