Fifteen years after "The Kids in the Hall"
aired on CBC
Television, the five original members of the Canadian sketch comedy team have reassembled in North Bay, Ont., to shoot an eight-part TV series. "Death Comes to Town"
will premiere on CBC
The series is about a killing spree in a small town and the trial that follows. It opens with the character of Death, played by Mark McKinney, getting off a Greyhound bus.
"It's our version of comedy… with a whodunit as the engine," Kids co-founder Bruce McCulloch told CBC
Radio's cultural affairs program Q from North Bay on Friday. The troupe's five members — Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, McCulloch, McKinney and Scott Thompson — reunited at Montreal's Just for Laughs festival in 2007 and toured across North America last year. "We never broke up," McCulloch said. "We just didn't do anything." (Source:
