New Canadian comedy Spun Out begins filming

SPUNOUTPilotThe cameras have begun rolling on the new CTV comedy series Spun Out.

The series – from Project 10 Productions – is being filmed at Toronto’s Pinewood Studios and features a cast led by Dave Foley.

“Another shining example of the strength of Canadian comedic talent, SPUN OUT has all the ingredients for a must-see hit – a mix of up-and-coming and established talent, an award-winning production team, and that electric bit of unpredictable energy from a live studio audience,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring such a classic genre of comedy to Canadian viewers,” said Co-creator, Writer, and Executive Producer Brent Piaskoski, Project 10 Productions. “We’re all huge fans of multi-cam. We’ve got great characters, compelling stories, and we’re going for the laughs.” 

From Gemini Award-winners Jeff Biederman (LIFE WITH DEREK,OVERRULED) and Brent Piaskoski (ACCORDING TO JIM, RADIO FREE ROSCOE), and co-creator Brian K. Roberts (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE DREW CAREY SHOW), SPUN OUT’s ensemble cast features Dave Foley as the patriarchal boss of a fledging PR firm, staffed with people who can spin everyone’s problems but their own.

Set to premiere on CTV during the 2013-2014 broadcast season, SPUN OUT centres on 20-something Beckett Ryan (Paul Campbell, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), a struggling writer who ends up working at the public relations firm after suffering his own PR disaster. 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

Rounding out the ensemble is Al Mukadam (RADIO FREE ROSCOE) as Beckett’s lifelong friend and spin expert Nelson, Holly Deveaux (LESS THAN KIND) as Beckett’s sassy ex-girlfriend Abby, Rebecca Dalton (THE L.A. COMPLEX) as the boss’s daughter Stephanie, J.P. Manoux (COMMUNITY) as the loyal but self-important office nerd Bryce, and Darcy Michael who plays Gordon, the guy at work who always seems like he’s about to be fired.
