SEASON 2 OF HIT SERIES “THE FACE OF FURRY CREEK” AND ONLINE DIGITAL COMPANION TO DEBUT SEPTEMBER 8th, 2014
Toronto, Ontario – August 6th, 2014: MKW Productions Inc., with the participation of OUTtv Network and the Bell New Media Fund, are pleased to announce the release of the second season of the television series and online companion project “The Face of Furry Creek” beginning Monday, September 8, 2014 8:30pm ET/7:30 PT on OUTtv Network and www.faceoffurrycreek.com.
Created by comedy writer, producer and actor Mark Kenneth Woods, the second season of the scripted comedy series follows a mountain resort community whose tourists are leaving in droves. It’s time to create a new tourism campaign to get those visitor dollars back! And what better way to find a tourism ambassador than a local reality show contest? With old favourites and plenty of new faces in town, 5 candidates compete, lie and cheat their way to becoming the new “Face of Furry Creek”.
A critical and ratings success, the second season promises even more laughs as Mark Kenneth Woods plays an astonishing 9 characters! Michael Venus, Amy Goodmurphy and Ryan Steele (currently starring on Amazing Race Canada) also return in multiple roles (and genders). Woods again wrote all 6 episodes of the new season which includes a musical episode, a parody of Duck Dynasty‘s “freedom of speech” fiasco and there’s even a plotline mirroring Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s antics.
In a unique melding of platforms, in each television episode, the fictional contestants are asked to create various videos that are then posted on our new media companion project www.faceoffurrycreek.com. Designed as the fictional contest website, each week the audience will have access to brand new, website-exclusive videos that they have seen the characters work towards in the television series. All for free.
The television series will air Mondays at 8:30pm ET/ 7:30 PT on OUTtv Network in Canada beginning September 8th, 2014 with the related digital media being posted during each new weekly episode. The first season is also available on gaydirect.com and will be added to iTunes Canada, US, UK, France, Brazil and other territories soon.
