CBC AND COMEDY CENTRAL GREENLIGHT NEW SERIES CRAWFORD FROM THE CREATOR OF "TRAILER PARK BOYS"

Unconventional family comedy hails from creator Mike Clattenburg, executive producer Laura Michalchyshyn and co-creator Mike O'Neill

October 13, 2016 - CBC in Canada and Comedy Central in the U.S. today announced that they have commissioned new comedy series CRAWFORD from Rabbit Square Productions, created by Mike Clattenburg (Trailer Park Boys, Black Jesus), executive produced by Laura Michalchyshyn (Trailer Park Boys, Chicagoland, The American West) and co-created by recording artist Mike O'Neill (Moving Day, Trailer Park Boys - Don't Legalize It). The 13x30 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," said Mike Clattenburg, Mike O'Neill and Laura Michalchyshyn.

What happens when you fail your Bachelor of Arts and your record label drops your Metal band on the same day? For 28-year-old Don, it means moving back home with your polyamorous parents and finding a job that comes easily. Don has always thought differently - 'thinking sideways', as his Mom puts it. Following intuition rather than logic is the unique approach that turns Don's compassion for and affinity for raccoons into a booming business - just as the town's raccoon population explodes.

Commissioned by CBC in Canada and Comedy Central in the U.S., CRAWFORD is produced by Rabbit Square Productions, Laura Michalchyshyn and Mike Clattenburg's company. Janice Dawe and Kathy Avrich-Johnson will also produce for Bizable Media. The series deal was negotiated by Maggie Pisacane of Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein and Selz and Bizable Media. Mike Clattenburg is represented by The Gersh Agency and managed by Echo Lake Entertainment.
