Canada’s Top Comedic Talent Unite as Production Begins on CTV’s New Original Comedy SPUN OUT
- Dave Foley leads ensemble cast in CTV’s workplace sitcom –
- Live tapings begin tonight and run through mid-July 2013 –
CTV and Project 10 Productions announced today that production is underway on the new half-hour Canadian scripted comedy series SPUN OUT. Co-starring comedy veteran and KIDS IN THE HALL alumnus Dave Foley and featuring some of the top comedic talent in the country ever assembled – both in front of and behind the camera – the multi-cam comedy series begins shooting tonight (May 3) at Toronto`s Pinewood Studios. Viewers looking to be part of the series’ studio audience can email firstname.lastname@example.org to attend live tapings of the series’ 13 episodes now through mid-July 2013.
From Gemini Award-winners Jeff Biederman (LIFE WITH DEREK,OVERRULED) and Brent Piaskoski (ACCORDING TO JIM, RADIO FREE ROSCOE), and co-creator Brian K. Roberts (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE DREW CAREY SHOW), SPUN OUT’s ensemble cast features Dave Foley as the patriarchal boss of a fledging PR firm, staffed with people who can spin everyone’s problems but their own.
Set to premiere on CTV during the 2013-2014 broadcast season, SPUN OUT centres on 20-something Beckett Ryan (Paul Campbell, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), a struggling writer who ends up working at the public relations firm after suffering his own PR disaster. No matter how bizarre the cases are that the agency takes on, they pale in comparison to the workplace romances, rivalries, personal successes, and often hilarious failures of the close-knit and dysfunctional colleagues
Rounding out the ensemble is Al Mukadam (RADIO FREE ROSCOE) as Beckett’s lifelong friend and spin expert Nelson, Holly Deveaux (LESS THAN KIND) as Beckett’s sassy ex-girlfriend Abby, Rebecca Dalton (THE L.A. COMPLEX) as the boss’s daughter Stephanie, J.P. Manoux (COMMUNITY) as the loyal but self-important office nerd Bryce, and Darcy Michael who plays Gordon, the guy at work who always seems like he’s about to be fired.
SPUN OUT is produced by Project 10 Productions in association with CTV. Gemini Award winners Jeff Biederman (LIFE WITH DEREK, OVERRULED!) and Brent Piaskoski (ACCORDING TO JIM, RADIO FREE ROSCOE) are co-creators, writers and executive producers. Brian K. Roberts (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE DREW CAREY SHOW) is co-creator, director, and executive producer. Andrew Barnsley (HOT BOX) is executive producer. Sarah Fowlie is Director, Independent Production, Comedy, Bell Media. Corrie Coe is Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. Mike Cosentino is Senior Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks. Phil King is President, CTV Programming and Sports.
