Men with Brooms is based on the 2002 Paul Gross film, which tries to marry curling with blue-collar comedy. The show will be produced by E1 Entertainment. Insecurity will be mounted by Vérité Films, the company behind Corner Gas, Incredible Story Studio(s) and renegadepress.com.
The Men with Brooms pickup doesn’t surprise me, but it does bother me. The film’s not that great, and I’d like to know how the hell a working-class male sitcom can be set around curling. If Men with Brooms turns out better than a dreary, middle-of-the-road dramedy, I’ll eat Sugar Sammy.
I gave a pass to The Ron James Show‘s premiere, but the show is so aimless. The Ron James Show has no format beyond “monologue, sketch, monologue, sketch, cartoon segment, Ron James utters polysyllables.” Does The Ron James Show have a target audience?
