Dave Foley joins CTV’s ‘Spun Out’

January 8th, 2013 - The Loop

Canadian comic Dave Foley is getting Spun Out for CTV.

The Kids in the Hall actor has been cast as the lead in Spun Out, an upcoming Bell Media pilot for CTV, announced in a press release on Tuesday.

“I am delighted to be returning to the multi-cam, live audience, sitcom world and to my hometown,” Foley said.

The half-hour comedy stars Paul Campbell (Battlestar Galactica) as Beckett Ryan, “a disgraced writer who ends up working at a public relations firm after suffering his own PR disaster.” The show focuses on the strange cases the firm takes on, and the funny failures of its dysfunctional colleagues. It marks the first multi-camera sitcom pilot for Bell Media.

“We are thrilled to have Dave anchoring an amazing cast of established sitcom actors and emerging stars,” said executive producer Andrew Barnsley. “Newsradio was one of our touchstones when developing the show, so having its star on board is truly an honour.”

Alongside Foley, Spun Out stars Holly Deveaux (Less Than Kind), Rebecca Dalton (The L.A. Complex), Al Mukadam (Radio Free Roscoe), Jadyn Wong (Being Erica) and Dean Pelton doppelgänger J.P. Manoux (Community).

Spun Out comes from the minds of three co-creators familiar with successful sitcoms — Jeff Biederman (Life with Derek), Brent Piaskoski (According to Jim) and Brian K. Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond).

Filming in front of a live studio audience begins on Jan. 18 in Toronto.
