New original comedy series ‘Spun Out’ coming to CTV
A new ensemble comedy starring Dave Foley (News Radio, Kids in the Hall) that takes a look at the fast-paced world of public relations is coming to CTV.
In “Spun Out,” failed writer Beckett Ryan (Paul Campbell) joins DLPR, a public relations agency staffed with people who can spin everyone’s problems but their own. From the eccentric company figurehead Dave (Dave Foley) and his insecure daughter Stephanie (Rebecca Dalton), to PR shark Nelson (Al Mukadam) and Dave’s ever-loyal assistant Bryce (JP Manoux), the DLPR office has no shortage of personality.
No matter how bizarre the cases are that the agency takes on, they pale in comparison to the workplace romances, rivalries, personal successes, and often hilarious failures of the close-knit and dysfunctional colleagues at DLPR.
The series also stars Holly Deveaux as Beckett’s unapologetic and brazen ex-girlfriend Abby and Darcy Michael as the office’s loveable loser Gordon.
Twelve episodes of the new multi-cam office sitcom have been ordered, in addition to the pilot shot last month in Toronto.
“Tackling the highs, the lows, and the bizarre in the fast-paced world of public relations, ‘Spun Out’ is a hilarious rollercoaster ride that dives into the dysfunction of close-knit colleagues,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. “This multi-cam sitcom is a great addition to our lineup of Canada’s most-watched comedies, and we’re excited to be working with the talented actors and skilled creative team behind this new series.”
From Project 10 Productions, “Spun Out” is created by Jeff Biederman (Life With Derek), Brent Piaskoski (According to Jim) and Brian K. Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), and is produced by Andrew Barnsley (Hotbox).
The series is set to begin production mid- spring.
