Series is lensing in Toronto

In what marks the first time a U.S. and Canadian broadcaster have teamed to produce a network comedy, NBC has struck a deal to co-produce Global TV’s “Working the Engels.”

The Peacock will air the comedy, though the net has yet to select a premiere date.

“We’re over the moon thrilled to work with NBC and Shaw Media on this series,” said Noreen Halpern, prez of Halfire-CORE Entertainment. “Katie and Jane Ford have created a laugh-out-loud show and we’re delighted to have a comedic legend in Andrea Martin, complemented by a trio of rising stars.”
