CBC’s ‘Son of a Critch’: Exclusive Trailer Drops For Latest Project From ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Producer Andrew Barnsley

Son of a Critch

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the exclusive trailer for Schitt’s Creek producer Andrew Barnsley’s latest project Son of a Critch. 

Based on comedian-actor-writer Mark Critch’s best-selling memoir, the 13 x 30-minute series will drop on Canadian broadcaster CBC and CBC Gem next month while Lionsgate has taken U.S. and international distribution rights.

Created by Critch and The Office producer Tim McAuliffe, the show features up-and-coming Haunting of Bly Manor star Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as young Mark, with Critch playing his father, Claire Rankin his mother and Malcolm McDowell playing the role of pop.

Son of a Critch opens a heartfelt window into the coming-of-age story of a child in 1980s Newfoundland, who uses comedy and self-deprecation to win friends and connect with the small collection of people in his limited world.

“I’ve been listening to the hilarious stories of Mark’s youth in Newfoundland for years, and it’s amazing to now be a part of bringing them to life on screen,” said McAuliffe.

Son of a Critch is an inter-provincial co-production between Barnsley’s Project 10 Productions Inc. and Newfoundland-based Take the Shot Productions in association with CBC and Lionsgate Television, and executive produced by Critch, McAuliffe, Barnsley, Ben Murray and Allan Hawco. Renuka Jeyapalan and Anita Kapila serve as co-executive producers with Jeyapalan directing the first four episodes of the series. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Entertainment, Factual & Sports; Trish Williams is Executive Director, Scripted Content; Sandra Picheca is Director, Current Production, Comedy; and Greig Dymond is Executive in Charge of Production and Head of Festivals, Comedy.
