New comedy show Acting Good, co-created by and starring Paul Rabliauskas (CBC New Indigenous Voices), has been greenlit by Bell Media’s CTV Comedy Channel.
Acting Good follows Paul’s character, an Indigenous man who returns to his reserve in Northern Manitoba after hitting a dead end in the big city, only to discover his eccentric family won’t let him come back as if nothing has happened.
This 10-part series is inspired by Paul’s own reserve, Poplar River First Nation in Manitoba, and his family and friends within the community.
The series was created alongside Amber-Sekowan Daniels (Diggstown), Eric Toth (Still Standing) and Pat Thornton (Filth City) who will also serve as showrunners.
Production is set to begin in Manitoba in early 2022.
