The first television series from Michael Eisner’s Tornante Animation, Glenn Martin, DDS premieres Saturday, October 3 at 8PM ET/CT/MT/PT on Citytv.
“Glenn Martin, DDS is a new, entertaining animation series that speaks to the lighter side of family-life that audiences can relate to,” commented Malcolm Dunlop. Executive Vice President, Rogers Media Television. “Actors Catherine O’Hara and Peter Oldring voice the series giving it a unique Canadian connection that Citytv viewers will enjoy.”
This laugh-out-loud primetime animation series follows the adventures of local dentist Glenn Martin (Kevin Nealon, Saturday Night Live) and his family – wife Jackie (Catherine O’Hara, Best in Show), daughter Courtney (Jackie Clarke, Starveillance) and son Conor (Peter Oldring, Chocolate News) – as they leave suburbia behind and embark on a cross-country adventure in their toothbrush-topped mobile dental RV. Glenn and his family discover that life on the road has more twists and turns than they bargained for. Their endless adventure will take them from Amish country to Sin City, from the back lots of Hollywood studios to the halls of the White house and everywhere in between.
“Animation is a great vehicle for comedy,” commented Alain Strati VP Specialty & Development, Rogers Media Television. “The strength of the partners involved in Glenn Martin, DDS including Tornante Animation and Michael Eisner, as well as the Canadian-based animation producer Cuppa Coffee contributed to a high-quality animated series that Citytv is pleased to be a part of.”
In the premiere episode “Save The Tooth” Glenn Martin, DDS, comes home from a tough day at work to find his family preoccupied with their own interests. He sits down to read and discovers that Singer Park, a beloved place from his youth, is about to be demolished. This inspires him to take his family on a road trip to save the park and hopefully reconnect their familial bond. After some misadventures, it is Jackie that convinces Glenn that the family should stay on the road.
