Consider the following information about Canadian TV show “Slings & Arrows.”

It was created by a Kid in the Hall, a Tony Award winner and a Soulpepper Theatre co-founder.

It features a who’s who of Canadian acting talent, led by Paul Gross and including internationally-known stars like Rachel McAdams.

It’s one of the best shows that you’ve possibly never heard of.

“Slings” — an affectionate parody of a Stratford-like Shakespearean theatre festival — debuted on Nov. 3, 2003 to what co-creator Mark McKinney calls “a muted response.”

Like many properties in our self-effacing Canadian entertainment industry, its acclaim grew after it aired in the U.S. and Americans took notice.
