From CBC:

  • McKinney turns his dark humour to TV series Less Than Kind
    “Kids in the Hall’s Mark McKinney is turning his subversive comic spirit to a new television series with a dark premise. Less Than Kind, a half-hour comedy to launch soon on CityTV, follows the life of 15-year-old Sheldon Blecher, an overweight high school student with a self-destructive driving-instructor father, a pyromaniac mother and a failed-actor brother who still lives at home. McKinney is producer and story editor.” Read more.

    “Those who feel queasy at the mere mention of Canadian television should understand that the upcoming Citytv series Less Than Kind is far closer in tone and subject matter to Arrested Development than, say, Little Mosque on the Prairie. In fact, if you happen to run into Maury Chaykin, one of the show’s leading actors, it’s best not to mention the popular CBC comedy at all.” Read more.
