Cameras rolling in N.S., P.E.I. on new CBC original comedy Cavendish

Cameras are rolling on Season 1 of new original comedy series Cavendish, set to premiere in winter 2019 on CBC.

The half-hour series is shooting on location in Nova Scotia (Halifax, Dartmouth, Windsor) and in and around Cavendish, P.E.I. until the end of September. 

Created by Canadian comedians Andrew Bush (Funny or Die), Mark Little (Mr. D) and Garry Campbell (Less Than Kind), the series follows the weird misadventures of bickering brothers, played by Bush and Little, who return to their hometown of Cavendish after 30 years to take care of their ailing father.

Rounding out the cast is Kevin Eldon (Hot Fuzz), Kathryn Greenwood (Whose Line Is It Anyway), Kelli Ogmundson (Supernatural), and Zoe Doyle (Workin’ Moms).

Produced by Temple Street, its SVP Kerry Appleyard says Bush and Little are a comedic force.

“Their chemistry as bickering brothers is at once hilarious and relatable, and their whip-smart writing with a spooky twist is a breath of fresh air. We’re thrilled to partner with the CBC, Boat Rocker Rights, Andy and Mark and the incredible cast and crew to bring their outlandish vision to life,” says Appleyard, who also serves as executive producer, along with Bush, Little, David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg (Orphan Black).

Jeremy LaLonde (How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town), Aleysa Young (Workin’ Moms), Mars Horodyski (This Hour Has 22 Minutes) and Andrew Bush will each direct two of Season 1’s eight episodes.

Boat Rocker Rights will distribute the series internationally.
