Rick Mercer’s Made in Canada Comes to Bite

October 22nd, 2010

Premiering Friday at 8/5P, Made in Canada stars Rick Mercer as Richard Strong, a production manager at Pyramid Productions, a television company that struggles under the questionable leadership of President Alan Roy (Peter Keleghan). Here’s the official description of the opening episode, “Pawn King Four”:

The champagne is flowing – the network has just ordered another 20 episodes of “The Sword of Damacles”.  But Richard Strong won’t be happy until his fortunes change. While Richard plots to move up in the company, Alan Roy and Senior Production Advisor Veronica Miller try to puff up the damaged ego of Damacles’ star.
