Listen now: Mary Young Leckie of MVP on TV, eh? Blogtalkradio

Mary Young Leckie, co-creator and executive producer of MVP, was my guest today on the TV, eh? Blogtalkradio show and she was fabulous, sharing the history of this show that refuses to disappear — cancelled by CBC, but seeing new life on that network, SOAPnet, ABC, and on DVD, all making a season two a definite possibility.

The interview’s about 16 minutes: listen below, visit the show site, or subscribe via iTunes or with any other program via the TV, Eh? feed.

Here’s the dates to remember for MVP:

  • Friday, June 13 is the start of season one reruns on CBC.
  • On June 19, MVP premieres on Soapnet, with weekly airings Thursdays at 11 pm Eastern.
  • June 20, it airs at 10 pm Eastern on ABC following the Daytime Emmys.
  • July 15, watch for the DVD release.

  1. US Time period are very bad, but i hope it works for a sesond season.
    Thanks, very interesting chat !

  2. Doh ! ABC change the name of the Series, and I don’t like it, the original is a lot better

    10:00 — 11:00 PM
    SCHEDULED Tonight’s program is “MVP: HE SHOOTS, SHE SCORES – Game On” – (CC)

  3. WE NEED MORE!!! What a great show.

    It deserves to be picked up for more seasons. I think not only does it expand age groups but ethnic as well as gender. I think our fan broad provides proof of that.

    And it even made me excited about real hockey again.

    Love it! Great writing, keep up the good work…

    Crossing fingers for an official announcement of more to come.
