Production Begins On Original Comedy “Letterkenny”
CraveTV announced that production is underway on another six-pack of its most-watched series, the Canadian Screen Award-winning Letterkenny.
Created by and starring Jared Keeso, the half-hour comedy is produced by New Metric Media in partnership with DHX Media, and shoots on location in and around Sudbury, ON until early August. New to the writer’s room this season are 19-2 veterans Jesse McKeown and Lynne Kamm. Jonathan Torrens returns to write two episodes.
Set to launch later this year, the newest Letterkenny six-pack finds The Hicks holding court back at the produce stand for another small-town summer. Affairs of the heart are on tap this season as Wayne (Keeso) and his sweetie, Rosie (Clark Backo), are on shaky ground and Katy (Michelle Mylett) finally chooses between Hockey Players. The Skids might still be on drugs too.
“Unapologetically resonant and indisputably revered, the award-winning Letterkenny has more bite than black fly season in Ontario,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President of Independent Production at Bell Media, in a press release. “Kudos to the rock solid creative team, led by Jared and Jacob, and production partners New Metric Media on another outstanding six-pack of this Canadian classic.”
