SUDBURY, ON (May 26, 2015) – The Comedy Network, CraveTVTM, New Metric Media, and a bunch of other city folks confirmed today that cameras are rollin’ on LETTERKENNY, an original Canadian series commissioned by CraveTV, in partnership with The Comedy Network. Created by Jared Keeso of Bravo original drama 19-2, and based on the internet sensation Letterkenny Problems, the six-part, half-hour series is currently shooting on location in and around Sudbury, ON, which everyone’s really stoked about – if it weren’t for the fact that it’s black fly season. The LETTERKENNY gang will be up der for ‘bout five weeks, ‘til the end of June.
We already told ya that LETTERKENNY stars Keeso as Wayne, a good-ol’ country boy in Letterkenny, Ontario trying to protect his homegrown way of life on the farm. He also executive produces and co-writes on the darn thing. Nathan Dales (KING & MAXWELL) stars as Wayne’s quick-tongued sidekick, Daryl. There’s more casting news to come, so keep your shirt on.
“LETTERKENNY’s world may smell like stale cigarettes and beer, but its approach to comedy is a breath of fresh air,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “We’re thrilled to be able to partner with Jared on another uniquely Canadian and nuanced series, and look forward to working with our dynamic production partners, New Metric Media.”
