From a media release:
HBO CANADA OFFERS FREE ONLINE PREVIEW OF JASON PRIESTLEY IN THE EDGY NEW CANADIAN COMEDY, CALL ME FITZ
- Premiere episode now available at www.hbocanada.com
- Call Me Fitz premieres Sunday, September 19 at 8 p.m. ET/MT
HBO Canada, a multiplex channel of Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central (Western Canada) and Astral’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada), is giving Canadians a sneak peek at the first episode of Call Me Fitz, a biting, dark comedy about a morally bankrupt yet charismatic used-car salesman who is forced to become business partners with his inner conscience. The online preview is now available at: http://www.hbocanada.com/callmefitz/sneakpeek.php.
See Jason Priestley in his much talked about role as Richard Fitzpatrick, the morally bankrupt used-car salesman who may after all have a conscience. Created by Sheri Elwood (Defying Gravity), Call Me Fitz tells the story of a handsome, substance-abusing scoundrel who torments his naÃ¯ve co-workers, stoops to shameful lows to get the best of the competition, sleeps with any woman who has a pulse and thinks his life is perfect. That is, until a major accident unleashes something from within Fitz â€“ the actual living embodiment of his conscience, or at least that’s what Larry, the tall and lanky do-gooder, claims to be. As the last unblemished corner of Fitz’s damaged soul, Larry is intent on rehabilitating Fitz’s battered psyche and, in turn, the entire Fitzpatrick family’s sleazy way of life, one disaster at a time.
Call Me Fitz will premiere Sunday, September 19 at 8 p.m. ET/MT with back-to-back episodes before the premiere of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire at 9 p.m. ET/MT. New episodes of Call Me Fitz will air regularly at 8:30 p.m. ET/MT on Sundays on HBO Canada.
