Dave Foley Is Returning to Network TV as the Star of Canada’s ‘Spun Out’
Kids in the Hall and NewsRadio star Dave Foley is returning to network TV next month, with a starring role in a new Canadian sitcom. Called Spun Out, it’s a multi-camera workplace comedy with an ensemble cast that will have Foley at its center. Foley will play the head of the public relations company that all of the main characters work for, with Paul Campbell, Al Mukadam, Rebecca Dalton, J.P. Manoux, Darcy Michael, and Holly Deveaux rounding out the ensemble. Spun Out, which premieres on Canada’s CTV March 6th, is Dave Foley’s first network sitcom since the short-lived 2011 CBS series How to Be a Gentleman and his first leading role in a sitcom since NewsRadio, another three-camera workplace show, ended in 1999. The folks behind the show are working to have it picked up by a US broadcaster, but it hasn’t happened yet.
