IFC Acquires Sitcom 'Death Comes to Town'


To all the American fans of the Kids in the Hall, the wait is almost over! As a matter of fact, IFC, an American cable network, announced that it acquired Death Comes to Town, an eight-episode miniseries in which the Kids in the Hall are back together. Moreover, IFC just said, so far, that the show will premiere in the USA on August.

Before getting an idea about what this Canadian show is all about, have in mind that the Kids in the Hall - a Canadian comedy group made of Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson - described it as a cross-over between Corner Gas and Twin Peaks.

In The Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town, Death gets off a Greyhound bus in the small Canadian town of Shuckton (the show was shot in North Bay, Ontario). The whole town is drawn in when one of its most distinguished is discovered murdered. As a suspect is arrested and the trial begins - the town's dark secrets begin to tumble out.

Finally, I still haven't seen the show, because of my research papers. In fact, the show was aired in Canada in winter on CBC, a public TV network. However, I'll watch the show on streaming (it only works in Canada) whenever my hands are no longer tied by my university.
