In the news: That’s So Weird films in TO school

From Bill Brioux of the Toronto Star:

  • St. Francis blessed with more weird youngsters
    “There may have been odd things going on at St. Francis of Assisi school before it closed down, but now that it’s a TV studio – well, that’s weird. In fact, That’s So Weird!, a new sketch comedy series aimed at ‘tweens, which airs Wednesday nights at 7:30 on YTV. It’s just one of several film and TV productions to take over the former downtown Toronto school in the past year.” Read more.

  1. Jeez Mr. Cavendish, as the show runner, I’d have to disagree with you. The show is directed at 10 to 15 year olds and attempts to poke fun at their culture, both in personal ways like things like dating and relationships with parents and the broader pop culture of singers, TV shows and films the kids are watching. I’m sorry you don’t like it but I suspect you’re not exactly the audience. Also, I wonder if you like Saturday Night Live or Mad TV, which are similar, although we are aging it younger for YTV’s demographic. The look and the pace of the show reflects a standard in sketch comedy, so it doesn’t look like a slick drama or sitcom, but I think it is actually quite a handsome sketch show.
