Production begins on the new Crave original series Pillow Talk

From a media release:

Crave, in association with KOTV Productions, announced today that production has begun in Montréal on the 10-part Crave Original series, PILLOW TALK. PILLOW TALK is an adaptation of Noovo’s hit French-language series ENTRE DEUX DRAPS, which is currently available on Crave.

Additionally, KOTV and Crave revealed today the full cast which consists of four, real-life couples who play fictionalized versions of themselves:

  • Nicola Correia-Damude (SHADOWHUNTERS, BURDEN OF PROOF) and Carlos Gonzalez-Vio (THE EXPANSE, ORPHAN BLACK);
  • Andrew Wheeler (SUPERNATURAL, Best in Show) and Sharon Crandall (The Kid DetectiveWelcome to Marwen); and
  • Paolo Santalucia (KIM’S CONVENIENCE) and Gregory Prest (Angels in America).
  • Additional cast members who play a set of roommates include Chris Robinson (WORKIN’ MOMS, Odd Squad) and Kwasi Thomas (SNOWPIERCER, Altered Carbon).

PILLOW TALK is a 10-part comedy that takes place entirely in bedrooms. The series revolves around four couples, and one set of roommates, of varying ages and backgrounds. With a realistic tone, the dramatic comedy explores in a raw and unexpected way the drama and hilarity experienced by couples in the intimacy of the bedroom.

After a successful first season where it was one of the Top 10 performing series on Noovo, ENTRE DEUX DRAPS was renewed for a second season which premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 15 on Noovo and Noovo.ca.

From a media release:

Hold on to your beavers! Crave announced today the judge’s panel presiding over Season 2 of its hit original series CANADA’S DRAG RACE, and there’s a new Fab Four in town serving up fierce critiques with a side of Canadian pride. Joining Season 1 alumni and #QueenoftheNorth Brooke Lynn Hytes in the hunt for Canada’s next Drag Superstar are three homegrown icons: actor and Season 1 guest host Amanda Brugel; TV personality and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski; and ETALK Senior Correspondent and Canada’s Squirrel Friend from Season 1, Traci Melchor.

In the sophomore season of CANADA’S DRAG RACE, the resident judges helm every episode, visit the Werk Room, judge the challenges, reveal competition twists, and decide who stays and who “Sash-ehs Away” after the epic Lip Sync For Your Life performance. Hytes and Goreski anchor the judge’s panel in every episode, with Brugel and Melchor joining regularly throughout the season. In addition to RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE fan-favourites like Snatch Game, Rumails, and Untucked, Season 2 is also set to bring audiences a few surprises and ‘RU-veals’ that have never been done before, while also celebrating the uniqueness of Canada’s drag scene and queer community.

From Steve Baltin of Forbes:

Link: Why Hulu’s ‘Letterkenny’ Is One Of The Most Endearing And Smartest Comedies On TV Right Now
Letterkenny is a deceptive show. It seems like what a female friend called “dude humor” — horny hockey guys, fighting, beer-drinking, hot girls. That is all there. But when you really get into Letterkenny, which I did by watching eight seasons in less than a month, you see it is so much more. Continue reading.
