Production begins on new comedy for Pop
A new series featuring actors from the hit shows Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Breaking Bad, Silicon Valley and 90210 started production in Halifax on Tuesday.
Let’s Get Physical, an eightepisode “modern-day comedy” series from the co-creator of Workaholics, is produced by Let’s Get NS Productions and will air on U.S. network Pop.
The series stars Jane Seymour, of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman; Matt Jones, of Breaking Bad; Chris Diamantopoulos of Silicon Valley; and Annalyne Mccord, of 90210.
Local actors Lee J Campbell, of The Mist; Rhys Bevan John, of Weirdos; Michael Ratchford, of Sex & Violence; Mary Vingoe, of Backbencher; and David Rossetti and Daniel Lillford, of Trailer Park Boys, round out the cast.
The series tells the story of a slacker named Joe, played by Jones, who makes “a reluctant comeback” in the fitness industry after his father dies and leaves him “a broken-down family gym.”
Seymour plays Joe’s mother, Janet Force, a former Miss Texas Beauty Pageant winner “obsessed with maintaining the family fitness legacy and antiaging remedies.”
