NBC to Co-Produce Canadian Comedy ‘Working the Engels’

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.

Halfhour sitcom hails from Halfire-CORE Entertainment in partnership with Shaw Media. Under the pact, NBC will co-produce 12 episodes of the comedy, which stars comedy and legit vet Andrea Martin.

Katie Ford and Jane Ford created and penned the series. “Working the Engels” centers on a family who must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them with a mountain of debt.

“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.”

Katie Ford, Jane Ford, Howard Busgang, Tom Nursall and Noreen Halpern serve as executive producers.
