Freaks and Geeks
Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, two short-lived TV series from Judd Apatow, are heading to IFC.
The network has picked up the rights to air repeats of both in full, which includes 18 episodes from Geeks, debuting Friday at 11/10c.
The 17 episodes — including one previously unseen — from Undeclared will bow on IFC in the fall.

The Apatow-produced comedies helped launch the careers of Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder), Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother), Jenna Fischer (The Office), James Franco (Pineapple Express), Linda Cardellini (ER) and Seth Rogen (Knocked Up), among others.
Apatow has gone on to direct and produce such films as The 40 Year Old Virgin, Funny People, Knocked Up, Superbad and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
"These acquisitions help further solidify IFC as the destination for programming that shares an off-kilter sensibility with its audience, particularly within the comedy genre," said Jennifer Caserta, executive vice president and general manager of IFC.
IFC has already revived shows such as Arrested Development, Monty Python's Flying Circus and The Whitest Kids U' Know.
