LOS ANGELES / TORONTO June 12, 2023 - Leading global production company marblemedia is excited to announce they have wrapped production in Toronto on a new original, single camera teen comedy series, Davey & Jonesie's Locker (10x30). The series is created by Evany Rosen who also serves as showrunner. The show has been co-commissioned by two of the world's largest streaming platforms, Prime Video in Canada, Australia and New Zealand and Hulu in the US.

The original series follows Davey and Jonesie, two lovably eccentric best friends who have always felt out of step with their peers and the banal backdrop of their high school existence. So when they discover their locker is actually a portal to the multiverse, they're more than ready to escape their teenage prison of mediocrity in favor of new horizons. But the joke is on them when they only ever end up in bizarre, alternate versions of their high school, surrounded by offbeat versions of their classmates. Fortunately, these audacious and creative besties are ready to make the most of this vacation from reality by leaving their mark on every universe they visit... even if it means choosing interdimensional chaos while they're at it. Worth it for the vibes.

The series stars the talented Veronika Slowikowska (F/X's What We Do In The Shadows, CBC's Baroness Von Sketch Show, CBS's Clarice) as Davey, and Jaelynn Thora Brooks (CBC's Heartland), as Jonesie. The show also features an ensemble cast of fresh faces and seasoned actors including Dan Beirne (Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, Netflix's Ginny and Georgia, F/X's Fargo) who plays disgraced quantum physicist turned high school science teacher, Mr. Schneider; Emily Piggford as series big bad, Cheryl, Nikko Angelo Hinayo as Emile, Kevin Lauta Osea as Abbott, Erika Swayze as Sierra, Sydney Xiaolang Topliffe as Joyce, Alexa Yaphe as Alexis, Parker Lauzon as Mark R. Shirt, James Hartnett as Andy, and creator and showrunner, Evany Rosen, as the school's hapless Principal Neighbors.

Creator and Showrunner Evany Rosen (New Eden, Baroness Von Sketch Show, The Spencer Sisters) is tapping into her distinctive comedic voice to create this new original series. Prior to, Rosen was the co-creator of the Crave original series, New Eden. A founding member of the Canadian Comedy award-winning comedy troupe Picnicface, Rosen has years of comedy writing experience with partners such as CBC, Crave, Disney, DreamWorks, AppleTV and Cartoon Network.

"My work has often focused on unique female relationships, and in creating a show for a teen audience I wanted to develop characters whose friendship felt authentically familiar, yet unlike what we often see portrayed on TV. Having been an extremely goofy 16-year-old myself once, my goal was to create a series about two best friends who have already learned to celebrate their bold senses of humour - and who get to enjoy the radical self-love that comes with that... long before they're old enough to rent a car," shares Evany Rosen, Creator and Showrunner. "I'm so grateful to the team at marblemedia and our amazing partners at Hulu and Prime Video for allowing me to develop this unapologetically comedy-forward series for a new generation of goofs."

"This series is a testament to our commitment at marblemedia to create character driven stories with international appeal. Hulu and Prime Video have been amazing creative collaborators and we're excited to bring this series to teen and YA audiences across North America and the world," shares Mark Bishop, co-CEO and Executive Producer at marblemedia. "We are thrilled to be in production on this auteur driven comedy. Evany's voice is delightfully original, and Davey & Jonesie's Locker is sure to disrupt the status quo of series currently on offer for this demo," adds A.J. Trauth, VP Kids at marblemedia.

This series is produced in association with Hulu and Prime Video with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund. Production credits for the series include Executive Producers Mark J.W. Bishop, Matt Hornburg, Diane Rankin, Carrie Paupst Shaughnessy, A.J. Trauth, and Evany Rosen who serves as showrunner as well; Co-Executive Producers are Donna Luke and writer Stephanie Kaliner;Distribution 360, a marblemedia company, hold worldwide distribution rights for the series.
