Eugene Levy to guest star on Package Deal

Building upon its already talent-laden cast, Citytv and Thunderbird Films today announced that esteemed Canadian actor Eugene Levy (American Pie, A Mighty Wind) will guest star in the highly anticipated Citytv original comedy series, Package Deal.

The award-winning Second City Television (SCTV) alumnus will appear in three episodes as a repeatedly-married man whose wives keep mysteriously dying, providing a challenge for his lawyer Danny (Randal Edwards, Degrassi: The Next Generation, The Killing).

“We are excited to welcome accomplished performer and comedy legend Eugene Levy to the cast of Package Deal,” said Claire Freeland, Director of Original Programming, Rogers Media. “He will undoubtedly delight Canadian audiences with his unique sense of humour and charm.”

Currently in production, Package Deal follows three overly-close brothers and the woman who comes between them. When Kim (Julia Voth, Bitch Slap) starts dating Danny (Randal Edwards), he seems too good to be true – a successful lawyer, charming, and single. Then, she discovers he’s already committed – to his two older brothers, Sheldon (Harland Williams, There’s Something About Mary) and Ryan (Jay Malone, Monk).

Created by Emmy-nominated producer Andrew Orenstein (Malcolm in the Middle, 3rd Rock from the Sun), Package Deal is produced by Thunderbird Films and will air exclusively on Citytv in the mid-season of 2013. Endemol Group will distribute the series internationally.

“Package Deal is already creating a buzz with its stellar cast, and we’re excited to have another performer as respected as Eugene Levy join the production,” said Michael Shepard, President, Thunderbird Films.
