Kids in the Hall reunite for series

8-part comedy to air on CBC in January

MONTREAL — Quirky Canuck comedy troupe the Kids in the Hall are back together shooting a comic murder-mystery series in Ontario.

Five members of the gender-bending comedy outfit, whose eponymous sketch comedy show ran on CBS and HBO in the first half of the 1990s, star in “Death Comes to Town.”

The eight-part series was conceived by Bruce McCulloch and co-written by McCulloch and fellow Kids Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson.

McCulloch is exec producer; Susan Cavan produces for Accent Entertainment.

Directed by Kelly Makin, who helmed the original “Kids in the Hall” series and movie, “Brain Candy,” the series is about what happens in a small town when all its most distinguished citizens are murdered. A suspect is arrested, there’s a trial and many dark secrets are revealed along the way.

It is filming in the small northern city of North Bay and is set to air on Canuck pubcaster CBC in January.

“We have thought about reuniting on television for years but we’ve all had a lot of personal projects and weren’t sure about how we wanted to come back together,” said McCulloch.
