CBC’S BREAKOUT COMEDY, MR. D, RETURNS FOR ITS SECOND SEASON THIS JANUARY
- Celebrated comedian and actor, Russell Peters to guest star in first episode
- Part of CBC- TV’s premiere week, season two begins Monday, January 7 at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT)
After the first season debuted to nearly 1.3 million viewers, CBC-TV’s hilarious breakout comedy Mr. D returns for its second season on Monday nights, beginning January 7 at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT). Mr. D centers around an under-qualified teacher trying to fake his way through a teaching job just as he fakes his way through life. Canadian comedian and actor, Russell Peters, is set to guest star in the first episode of the season.
The show stars stand-up comedian Gerry Dee as the inexperienced and smug Mr. Duncan, who enters his second year of teaching at the prestigious private school, Xavier Academy. His teaching style hasn’t gotten any better and his ego hasn’t gotten any smaller. The staff and students of Xavier will be confused and entertained as they will once again become embroiled in his antics throughout the school year.
Dee, who was a private school teacher for nine years before giving it up for comedy, has since headlined as a performer at Just for Laughs, and was a finalist on the Last Comic Standing. Mr. D was created by Gerry Dee and Michael Vople and stars Jonathan Torrens, Lauren Hammersley, Booth Savage, Bette McDonald, Naomi Snieckus, Darrin Rose, Mark Little and Wes Williams. Mr. D is filmed in Halifax as a co-production of Topsail Productions and Gerard ADHD Entertainment
Watch Mr. D Mondays at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) beginning Monday, January 7.
