Canadian TV has a long tradition in sketch comedy, from Second City Television and Kids in the Hall to The Holmes Show and the Picnicface series.

Now City is returning to the sketch comedy well for Sunnyside, an original series created by Gary Pearson (This Hour Has 22 Minutes) and Dan Redican (The Kids in the Hall) to bow mid-season on the Rogers Media channel.

The homegrown series stars Kathleen Phillips, Lauren Ash, and Pat Thornton and is said to revolve around a quirky neighbourhood where residents aren’t always what they seem.
