THE BEAVERTON is an incredibly important satirical news series with deep importance to citizens living in the country with the most water in the world. A so-called televised “adaptation” of the immensely popular online satirical site TheBeaverton.com, THE BEAVERTON guarantees to provide Canadians with the news they didn’t even ask for. The new half-hour series, produced by Pier 21 Films in association with The Comedy Network, is scheduled to begin production in front of a live studio audience in Toronto this summer and will be available in 4K.
Helmed by co-anchors Emma Hunter (MATCH GAME, JFL: ALL ACCESS) and Miguel Rivas (acclaimed sketch troupes Tony Ho, Get Some), and a rotating cast of correspondents featuring some of Canada’s top comedians, THE BEAVERTON files fake, but incredibly important stories informed by real events, the cultural zeitgeist, and national news media.
