From a media release:
ENTERTAINMENT ONE AND SPE NETWORKS LATIN AMERICA SIGN PROGRAMMING DEAL
Leading independent studio, Entertainment One is proud to announce it has concluded a slate of deals this summer in Latin America for the television series starring Jason Priestley, Call Me Fitz.
Most recently announced, Priestley was awarded with the Best Actor of a Television Series Award for his role as “Fitz” at the fourth edition of the prestigious international Television Festival, RomaFictionFest.
Call Me Fitz is a production of Entertainment One, Amaze Film + Television, Big Motion Pictures and Creator /Executive Producer Sheri Elwood (Defying Gravity). Call Me Fitz is a no-holds-barred, half-hour comedy starring Jason Priestley (The Day of the Triffids, Beverly Hills 90210) as Richard “Fitz” Fitzpatrick, a morally degenerate used car salesman who is forced to go into business with his ‘conscience.’ The handsome, charismatic and slightly crazy used car dealer pushes the boundaries of acceptable behavior. A near death experience for Fitz coincides with the arrival of Larry, a do-gooder with a heart of gold bent on helping Fitz change his ways. The dark comedy is slated to premiere in September 2010 on The Movie Network in Eastern Canada and Movie Central in Western Canada. The second season begins production in fall 2010.
Also sold for Latin America is the reality comedy series that pits childhood friends against each other in outrageous competitions, Kenny vs. Spenny for SPE Networks and the revealing documentary series that takes a look at the emotional and costly journey of the increasing number of men and women who feel driven to redesign their bodies, Skin Deep for Discovery.
