Tom Green to guest star in Citytv’s somedy series Seed

Citytv and Force Four Entertainment today announced that Canadian-born actor and comedian Tom Green joins the dynamic cast of Citytv’s new original comedy series Seed in a one-time guest appearance.

Ottawa-native Green, who is currently on a world-wide comedy tour and recently starred in his own comedy special, is internationally renowned for his irreverent talk show, The Tom Green Show, and roles in cult-comedies Freddy Got Fingered, Road Trip, and Stealing Harvard.

In Seed,Green will play an arrogant but insightful psychoanalyst named Dr. Stuart Meinertzhagen that will see him counselling the show’s dysfunctional families. The good doctor’s new-age methods and alternative approach put him in direct rivalry with Anastasia’s mom Janet (Laura de Carteret, The L.A. Complex), who considers Meinertzhagen a total fraud.

Created by Joseph Raso (Zombies & Cheerleaders), Seed is executive produced by award-winning writer and producer Mark Farrell (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Made in Canada, Corner Gas), and produced by Force Four Entertainment. The series is slated to premiere on Citytv in early 2013. Additional broadcast details to be announced at a later date.
