A Stephen Sondheim-themed episode of Documentary Now!, parodying D.A. Pennebaker's classic making-of Company documentary, is coming to IFC! The episode, titled "Original Cast Album: Co-Op," airs Wednesday, February 27, at 11pm.

The episode will tell the story of the recording of a cast album for the fictional musical Co-Op. Taran Killam, John MULANEY and James Urbaniak play producers overseeing the recording for the cast album. Alex Brightman, Richard Kind, Paula Pell and Renee Elise Goldsberry play the stars of Co-Op.

The episode will honor Pennebaker's 1970 documentary Original Cast Album: Company, which showcased the efforts of an exhausted orchestra and exhausting performers to get an album recorded during a marathon session. Elaine Stritch's monumentally dramatic attempts to finish and perfect her performance of "The Ladies Who Lunch" was the highlight of the film.

Check out a sneak peek from the episode below, as Patty struggles to record her big number- "I Gotta Go."
