Update from up north: Canadian sketch group Picnicface gets series on The Comedy Network


Congrats to my friends of The Comic's Comic in Canadian sketch group Picnicface for receiving a 13-episode order this week from The Comedy Network. Here is the statement on the group's site:

We expect to begin filming this spring in Halifax. A huge thanks to all our fans for their support, we couldn't have done this without you. And although we're excited for the chance to reach a television audience, this definitely won't be the end of our online presence.

THR is reporting that their sketch series will have Mark McKinney of Kids in the Hall as their executive producer and showrunner. Picnicface is based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Nice work, kids!
