Jacob Tierney, who developed the show with Keeso and has directed much of the series, also stars.

“Letterkenny” is produced by New Metric Media, in partnership with DHX Media and Playfun Games in association with Bell Media, with the participation of Canadian Media Fund, OMDC Tax Credits and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund and distributed by DHX Media & New Metric Media. Crave is from Bell Media, Canada’s leading content company.
