CBC in Canada and Comedy Central are teaming for new comedy series called “Crawford” from Rabbit Square Productions. Created by Mike Clattenburg (“Trailer Park Boys”), and executive produced by Laura Michalchyshyn (“Trailer Park Boys,” “Chicagoland”), the half-hour series centers around a young man who, after a run of bad luck, moves back in with his parents and turns his natural ability to relate to raccoons into a successful business, all while navigating life with his eccentric family.
Production will begin in Toronto in 2017. Content Media will handle international distribution for the series.
“This fresh and unique comedy is a perfect fit for CBC’s premium, character-driven comedy slate,” said Sally Catto, general manager, programming, CBC Television. “We are excited to partner with the Rabbit Square team and Comedy Central to bring Mike Clattenburg’s raccoon whisperer to television audiences.”
“We are thrilled to bring the world of Crawford to life with CBC and Comedy Central. Have you experienced an unexpected arrival of raccoons, your mom’s lover, or the police knocking in the middle of the night? The residents of Crawford Street have,” added Mike Clattenburg, Mike O’Neill and Laura Michalchyshyn.
