It doesn’t get more Canadian than this: six of the actors who co-star in CraveTV’s Letterkenny met star Jared Keeso in a beer hockey league.
“I’m kind of living the dream there; I get to make a TV show and cast all my buddies,” said Keeso in a phone interview, calling that “impossibly Canadian.”
The irreverent comedy about people living in the small town of Letterkenny, a stand-in for Keeso’s hometown of Listowel, Ont., returns to Crave with six new episodes on Christmas Day.
“What we do on Letterkenny is we just take the portrait of small-town life and exaggerate and embellish the s— out of it,” Keeso said.
The series has been a hit for the Bell Media-owned streaming service, becoming its most watched title since it debuted in February.
