From a media release:
Principal photography on Season 7 (11 x 30) of CBC’s original comedy series Mr. D – starring comedian Gerry Dee – is now under way in and around Halifax until mid-August. The new season will premiere in fall 2017 on CBC.
Exploring the staff and student dynamics at a private school, Mr. D is based on the stand-up comedy act of Dee, who was a teacher for nine years before transitioning to a career in comedy. The series revolves around the eponymous Mr. D, an under-qualified and unmotivated teacher trying to fake his way through work – and life.
In the Season 6 finale, Gerry Duncan (Gerry Dee) seems to be on the upswing as he unloads wife Lisa (Lauren Hammersley) and lands his dream job – head of the Phys. Ed department. But does getting burned by Gerry and abruptly leaving her job as Principal signal the end of Lisa Mason? Better not count on it.
In Season 7, Gerry realizes Phys. Ed is not all fun and games; Robert (Jonathan Torrens) and Bobbi (Naomi Snieckus) navigate parenthood; Simon (Mark Little) and Nisha (Emma Hunter) get more physical in their new relationship; new Economics teacher Dave (guest star Dave Merheje) tries to inspire his students; and Lisa does whatever she can to return to Xavier Academy.
Mr. D also stars Bette MacDonald (Trudy), Darrin Rose (Bill), Wes Williams (Paul), Suresh John (Malik), Kathleen Phillips (Emma), and Bill Wood (Frank), with season 7 guest stars to be announced at a later date.
A CBC original series, Mr. D is produced by Topsail Productions Limited and Gerard ADHD Entertainment Inc. and distributed worldwide by Entertainment One Television International Ltd.
