From a media release:

Movie Central and The Movie Network Announce Season Premiere of Canadian Original Hit-Comedy Series CALL ME FITZ

  • CALL ME FITZ, starring Jason Priestley and season guest star Michael Gross, premieres Monday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET

The Canadian Screen Award-winning twisted comedy series CALL ME FITZ launches a fourth season full of laughs, beginning Monday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET on Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central (Western Canada) and Bell Media’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada).

Starring Jason Priestley as Richard “Fitz” Fitzpatrick, a morally flawed car salesman, CALL ME FITZ returns for a fourth season, but things have changed. With a new baby in the house – Elaine’s swinging party pad, no less – Larry thinks it’s the perfect time to dig out the family photo album, empty old boxes in the basement, and discover what made the Fitzpatricks the class-A derelicts they are today. Every new piece of the Fitzpatrick past that Larry uncovers sheds more light on the family’s twisted history, while fueling the dysfunctional fire between them and, in the end, unearthing a nemesis hell-bent on eradicating the Fitzpatricks and their way of life.

The nine-episode fourth season of the made-in-Canada half-hour comedy guest stars Michael Gross (FAMILY TIES, Tremors) as family nemesis Pat Childs. The ensemble cast also includes: Peter MacNeill as Ken Fitzpatrick, Fitz’s father and patriarch of Fitzpatrick Motors; Tracy Dawson as Meghan Fitzpatrick, Fitz’s shrewish younger sister and thorn in his side; Donavon Stinson as Josh Mctaggart, the Fitzpatrick Motors in-house auto repair and wildcard; Kathleen Munroe as Ali Devon; Jonathan Torrens as Chester Vince; and Joanna Cassidy, who returns as Fitz’s mother Elaine Fitzpatrick.

The series’ Canadian Screen Awards include Sheri Elwood for Best Direction in a Comedy Program or Series; Joanna Cassidy for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role or Guest Role in a Comedic Series; Tracy Dawson for Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Comedic Role, and Ernie Grunwald for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role or Guest Role in a Comedic Series. Series star Jason Priestley recently took home a Golden Nymph Award at the 2012 Monte Carlo Television Festival for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series and a 2011 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Performance by a Male – Television.

CALL ME FITZ was created by Sheri Elwood and then developed by Amaze Film + Television. The series is produced by Amaze, Big Motion Pictures, and Entertainment One, with the participation of The Movie Network and Movie Central. Executive Produced by Sheri Elwood, who is also the series Show Runner, the show is filmed in Nova Scotia. CALL ME FITZ currently airs on DirecTV in the U.S.

  1. Interesting that they’ve moved it from HBO Canada to The Movie Network & Movie Central.

  2. How are there 9 episodes when they already published all the general info – titles, directors, writers, and guest stars – on all 10 episodes?

    I too find it an odd move from HBO Canada, where i thought the show was perfect for the brand. In my mind Call Me Fitz has been HBO Canada’s flagship show for the past 3 years.
