I read today that CBC has a few new made-in-Canadaland TV series lined up for January 2008.
Now, sit down. Comfy? Good.
One of the new series is a 13-part serialization of Coupland's JPod.
I'm not kidding.
The good news - I guess - is that Coupland, himself, is executive producer and wrote the scripts. Maybe the visual medium will translate Coupland's story better than print. But I'm not real hopeful.
The bad/weird news is that Alan Thicke is in the cast. Now, William Shatner would be sort of hipster-casting. But Alan Thicke?
I'm from Missouri, but you know I'll watch an episode anyways.
Oh, and another new series is MVP. A hockey-meets-Desperate Housewives soap that was shot in London over a few months earlier this year. I can't wait to see the JLC and Convention Center on my TV.
Oh wait, I can. Guess I better head to Chapters soon.
