In what has to be the most fantastic development in Canadian television since “Sue Thomas F.B.Eye” was finally cancelled, Variety is reporting that – for Canadian television only – all five members of the Kids in the Hall are reuniting for an 8-episode “comic murder-mystery series” called “Death Comes To Town”!
The series was conceived by Bruce McCulloch and co-written by McCulloch and Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson, and is noted by Variety as being “about what happens in a small town when all its most distinguished citizens are murdered. A suspect is arrested, there’s a trial and many dark secrets are revealed along the way.”
It’s set to air on CBC starting in Jaunary, which is almost enough for me to reconsider any plans to make a more permanent southerly relocation. Long live:
