IFC has previously aired The Jon Dore Television Show. The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is a British show with a Canadian costar.
I’m not bragging, by the way, about Canadians who have Made It in America®. I’m just stating that Americans will watch Canadian comedy if there’s a demand for it. IFC’s not a bad home for Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town, although I expected Comedy Central or BBC America to blink first. Nice one, IFC.
Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town will begin airing in August 2010. Why late summer instead of the fall, I don’t know, but Death Comes to Town isn’t the main draw for IFC in 2010-11. The Onion News Network is, with zombie horror-comedy Dead Set sliding under the radar.
The Whitest Kids U’Know, Z Rock and Greg the Bunny have built up IFC’s reputation for comedy. It’ll be quite interesting to see what IFC mounts and/or picks up over the next few years. If Pure Pwnage and/or Testees end up on IFC, I won’t be surprised. I think IFC has discovered a new niche.
