From a media release:
Welcome Back to the Sunnyside of Life!
Original sketch-comedy series Sunnyside, created by award-winning comedy writers Gary Pearson (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Ron James Show, MADtv) and Dan Redican (The Kids in the Hall, The Jenny McCarthy Show, Puppets Who Kill), is shooting new shows. Production on seven half-hour episodes began May 14 in Winnipeg and will run until June 23, completing a full 13-episode first season to air this fall on City.
Sunnyside is co-produced by Toronto-based Counterfeit Pictures and Winnipeg-based Buffalo Gal Pictures. It stars an all-Canadian ensemble cast made up of the industryâ€™s brightest and hottest comedic talents: Kathleen Phillips, Pat Thornton, Alice Moran, Kevin Vidal, Rob Norman and Patrice Goodman. It is set in Sunnyside â€“ a not-so-typical fictional neighbourhood where anything can happen, and almost always does.
Anton Leo, Shane Corkery and Dan Bennett from Counterfeit Pictures and Phyllis Laing from Buffalo Gal Pictures serve as Executive Producers, Rhonda Baker from Buffalo Gal Pictures as Producer, and Paula J. Smith as Supervising Producer. For Rogers, Nataline Rodrigues is Director of Original Programming, and Hayden Mindell is Vice President of Television Programming & Content. Sunnyside is produced with the participation of Manitoba Film and Music and the Rogers Cable Network Fund.
