For fans of the Canadian comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall, to have been missing from the airwaves for the last 15 years is far too long.
Now, they’re back in Death Comes to Town, an eight-episode series premiering on the IFC channel Aug. 20. Unlike the troupe’s sketch comedy, Death Comes to Town follows a single serialized narrative, in which, yes, death comes to a small Canadian town to claim three lives.
Original troupe member Kevin McDonald talks with Mediaweek’s Alan Frutkin about the show and his cross-dressed character Marni, the pizza lady.
