Torontoist gets Back in the Hall

"Well before Broken Social Scene, Toronto birthed its most formidable indie collective: The Kids in the Hall." To celebrate their return to television, Torontoist sat down for interviews with each of the Kids. Along with discussing the original series and "Death Comes to Town", Scott talks a bit about his cancer treatment and Dave shares a few more details about the pilot he is co-writing with Kevin.

Check out all five interviews: http://www.torontoist.com/tags/backinthehall

Death Comes to IFC!

American fans can finally begin the countdown... IFC has acquired "Death Comes to Town" and it will premiere in August 2010. "Death" will join a series from another sketch comedy veteran (David Cross of Mr. Show, Arrested Development) called "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret".

Here is IFC's announcement:

Also, here is a piece from NYTimes' David Itzkoff about IFC's new comedic plans that includes a "Death" mention:

And while US folk can't watch the full episodes posted on the CBC's website, you can spend the five month wait enjoying Hockey Night in Shuckton.

Thanks to Lucy for passing on this fantastic interview with Dave from backstage.com.

Although he's being funny here... The series has yet to be sold in the U.S., but it will likely end up on cable. "They're shopping it now," he says. "I think there needs to be a massive letter-writing campaign. I think the press has to galvanize the public. This has to be the biggest social movement since the Vietnam War protests. If we can get a million people on the [National] Mall then maybe the Kids in the Hall will be on American TV."

... I think the more buzz and excitement there is about this thing, the better.
