From a media release:
Frantic Films today announced that production is underway on Season 3 of CBC original series BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW (10×30). The acclaimed sketch comedy series recently wrapped its second season on CBC in Canada and also debuted on IFC in the U.S. this August. The Canadian Screen Award-winning series will be shooting on location in and around Toronto until November 2017 for broadcast on CBC in 2018.
Created, written by and starring award-winning Canadian comedians Carolyn Taylor, Meredith MacNeill, Aurora Browne and Jennifer Whalen, the single camera, all-female sketch comedy series was a breakout hit from its debut in June 2016. Their debut sketch “Locker Room” garnered 1.8 million views on Facebook, with latest viral hit “Psych-up salad” receiving 7 million views on Facebook, helping to create a cult following for the show in Canada, the U.S. and beyond.
Last month Vogue magazine declared, “Baroness Von Sketch Show Is the Best Thing to Come Out of Canada Since Ryan Gosling” and the New York Times called it a “fabulous Canadian sketch series.” Dubbed “refreshingly different” by Rolling Stone magazine, the show enjoys a loyal fan base, including musicians Jann Arden, Tegan and Sara and Reggie Watts as well as actors Kyle MacLachlan, Michael McKean and Orange Is the New Black star Lea DeLaria.
Fast-paced and irreverent, BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW celebrates the absurd, mines the embarrassing and satirizes our daily lives. This all-female series takes a fresh look at our contemporary culture and captures the banalities and absurdities of modern life.
A CBC original series, BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW is produced by Frantic Films and executive produced by Jamie Brown, Carolyn Taylor, Meredith MacNeill, Aurora Browne and Jennifer Whalen. The series won three Canadian Screen Awards (CSAs) in 2017 including Best Variety or Sketch Comedy Program Series, Best Writing in a Variety or Sketch Program or Series and Best Picture Editing in a Variety Sketch Program or Series.
