CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR CBC ORIGINAL COMEDY SERIES "CRAWFORD" FROM RABBIT SQUARE PRODUCTIONS

Ensemble cast features Jill Hennessy, Kyle Mac, Daniel Davis Yang, Alice Moran and John Carroll Lynch

Production begins on new series from the creator of Trailer Park Boys and Black Jesus

Toronto, April 18, 2017 - CBC and Rabbit Square Productions today announced casting for new unconventional family comedy series CRAWFORD. Created by Mike Clattenburg (Trailer Park Boys, Black Jesus), and co-created by recording artist Mike O'Neill (Moving Day, Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It), the half-hour comedy features an ensemble cast led by Jill Hennessy (Shots Fired, Crossing Jordan), Kyle Mac (Miss Sloane, 21 Thunder), Daniel Davis Yang (Riverdale), Alice Moran (Sunnyside, Man Seeking Woman) and John Carroll Lynch (The Founder, American Horror Story). Production starts this week in Toronto and will continue until June for a winter 2018 launch on CBC.

The world of CRAWFORD is a familiar yet unusual one. When raccoons invade the world's most functioning dysfunctional family's home, they help breathe life and new meaning into the odd behaviours of the family. Jill Hennessy plays Cynthia (aka Mom), an award-winning cereal executive struggling to deal with the stress of juggling work with the needs of her husband, Owen, and her lover. John Carroll Lynch is cast as Owen, family patriarch and former police chief, who is unable to use his voice due to a medical condition and communicates via his smartphone. Kyle Mac is Don, "temporarily" crashing at his parents' after being dropped by his music label. Much to his surprise, he soon finds his calling as a raccoon whisperer. Older sister Wendy, played by Alice Moran, and younger brother Brian, played by Daniel Davis Yang, aren't too surprised by Don's return and welcome him back - sort of - they have issues of their own. It's weird, but in CRAWFORD weird is the new normal.

"We're thrilled to be starting production with such an extraordinary cast - led by Jill and John - and our creative team," said executive producers Laura Michalchyshyn and Mike Clattenburg. "We're excited to bring CRAWFORD to the world with the support of CBC and share the peculiar relationships of this not-so-typical family with audiences."

Produced by Rabbit Square Productions for CBC in Canada and Comedy Central in the U.S., CRAWFORD is executive produced by Laura Michalchyshyn and Mike Clattenburg. The series is written by Mike Clattenburg, Mike O'Neill, Zoe Whittall (Baroness von Sketch Show, The Best Kind of People), Kathleen Phillips-Locke (Sunnyside, The Ron James Show), Monica Heisey (Baroness Von Sketch Show, I Can't Believe It's Not Better) and Timm Hannebohm (Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day, Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys).

Janice Dawe and Kathy Avrich-Johnson are co-executive producers for Bizable Media (Saving Hope, A Better Man). Line producer is Suzanne Colvin-Goulding (The Girlfriend Experience, The Virgin Suicides). Series cinematography by David Makin (Reign, Beauty and the Beast), production design by Rupert Lazarus (Eyewitness, Shoot the Messenger) and costume design by Aline Gilmore (Indian Horse, Game On). Content Media handles international distribution for the series. CRAWFORD is produced with the participation of the Canada Media Fund.
