Kids in the Hall star Dave Foley filming sitcom pilot with CTV
Project 10 Productions announced today that Canadian sitcom veteran and “Kids In The Hall” alumnus, Dave Foley, has been cast in the lead role for the upcoming Bell Media pilot for CTV, SPUN OUT.
Foley will play the patriarchal boss of a fledgling PR firm, staffed with people who can spin everyone’s problems but their own.
Slated to shoot live in front of a studio audience beginning January 18 in Toronto, SPUN OUTstars Paul Campbell (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, ALMOST HEROES) as Beckett Ryan, a disgraced writer who ends up working at a public relations firm after suffering his own PR disaster.
"I am delighted to be returning to the multi-cam, live audience, sitcom world and to my hometown," said Dave Foley.
“We are thrilled to have Dave anchoring an amazing cast of established sitcom actors and emerging stars,” said Andrew Barnsley, Executive Producer. “NEWSRADIO was one of our touchstones when developing the show, so having its star on board is truly an honour.”
Rounding out the ensemble is Holly Deveaux (LESS THAN KIND), Al Mukadam (RADIO FREE ROSCOE), Rebecca Dalton (THE L.A. COMPLEX,), J.P. Manoux (COMMUNITY), and Jadyn Wong (BEING ERICA).
The SPUN OUT pilot is produced by Project 10 Productions in association with Bell Media. Gemini Award winners Jeff Biederman (LIFE WITH DEREK, OVERRULED!) and Brent Piaskoski (THE LATEST BUZZ, ACCORDING TO JIM) are co-creators, writers and executive producers. Co-creator, director and executive producer is Brian K. Roberts (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE DREW CAREY SHOW). Andrew Barnsley (HOT BOX) is executive producer.
After the pilot is shot, CTV will give consideration to developing SPUN OUT into a full series.
