TV,eh? What's up in Canadian television

Upcoming series: Rent-a-Goalie, Showcase, Sundays starting Oct. 1

Rent-A-Goalie revolves around the exploits of Cake (Christopher Bolton), a hockey-mad, recovered-from-everything go-to guy, who runs a rag-tag hockey goalie rental service out of Cafe Primo, a family-owned coffee shop in Toronto’s Little Italy. Here, at this crazy crossroads of hockey culture, coffee culture and Italian-Canadian culture, Cake has finally found a home. He spends his time juggling friends and enemies, the ridiculous and the profound, while always trying to live by The Code – an ever evolving set of personal ethics, spiritual maxims and athletic credos that keep him on the straight and narrow.

Sundays at 9:30 PM ET/PT
Starting October 1
