Thompson ‘Nets ‘ScottLand’ skein

Ex-'Kid' launches online program

“Kids in the Hall” alum Scott Thompson is launching his next comic project, “ScottLand,” as a 26-episode series over the Internet.

Bowing Aug. 10 on year-old Web site ComedyNet, “ScottLand” will mix live-action with puppets in an interactive look at a dysfunctional kingdom. Sample storylines, with Thompson playing the major roles, include foot fetishes and political revolution.

As an added catch, “ScottLand” viewers can register as official citizens and vote in all town elections.

ComedyNet general manager Victorria Johnson calls Thompson “a true visionary … creating a fantastical sci-fi story that sends reminiscent whiffs of an adult ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’ and ‘Pee-wee’s Playhouse.’ ”

Thompson, who regularly appeared on “The Larry Sanders Show,” co-wrote “ScottLand” with Deborah Theaker.
