The trailer of the upcoming Canadian TV series Call Me Fitz has made its way online. This dark half-hour comedy created by Sheri Elwood (Defying Gravity) will air at some point in 2010 on The Movie Network and Movie Central, which are respectively two premium cable networks from Eastern and Western Canada.
In this show, we follow Richard “Fitz” Fitzpatrick (Jason Priestley), a used car dealers who has a knack for having a morally unacceptable behaviour at times. After Fitz botches a test drive and puts his latest customer in a coma, he finds himself face to face with a new salesman on the lot: Larry (Ernie Grunwald), a man with a heart of gold. Besides, Larry believes he's Fitz's conscience and that Fitz can change.
The show was shot in the city Halifax and the Annapolis Valley, which are both located in the province of Nova Scotia.
Finally, Call Me Fitz also stars Kathleen Munroe (Durham County), Rachel Blanchard (Adoration), Brooke Nevin (The 4400), Joanna Cassidy (Hawthorne), Peter MacNeill (The Stone Angel), Tracy Dawson (The Gavin Crawford Show), Mark A. Owen (Canada Russia '72) and Gillian Ferrier (Re-Creation).
