Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

TORONTO - The head-bangers of “Fubar” are headed to the small screen. Vice Stu­dio Canada and Rogers Me­dia say they’re mak­ing an eight-hour se­ries based on the 2002 Cana­dian moc­u­men­tary cult hit about two metal heads. Film­ing is un­der­way in Mon­treal and re­unites di­rec­tor Michael Dowse and stars David Lawrence and Paul Spence in their orig­i­nal roles as Terry and Dean. In the new se­ries, the two friends find them­selves flee­ing the wild­fires of Fort McMur­ray, Alta., to Cal­gary with only emer­gency gov­ern­ment debit cards to their name. Terry dis­cov­ers high-speed In­ter­net and tries to make a profit on­line. Mean­while, Dean tries to record a triple-con­cept album.
