From a media release:
VICE Studio Canada and Rogers Media today announced the start of production on their second original scripted series for VICELAND – FUBAR. Taking the beloved film franchise and hurtling it into the modern age, the eight-part, half-hour series, currently filming in Montreal, reunites director Michael Dowse and stars David Lawrence and Paul Spence in their original roles as Terry and Dean. FUBAR is slated to premiere in 2017 on VICELAND, with full broadcast details to be announced at a later date.
The series opens with Terry (Lawrence) and Dean (Spence) fleeing from the wildfires of Fort McMurray, in a desperate retreat to Calgary, with nothing but emergency government debit cards to their names. Discovering high-speed Internet for the first time, Terry is exposed to a world of commerce and social media and attempts to harness the web to make a profit. Meanwhile, Dean embarks on a journey to record a triple-concept album, using his burnt bass guitar and no-nuts falsetto voice.
