"Another shining example of the strength of Canadian comedic talent, SPUN OUT 
has all the ingredients for a must-see hit - a mix of up-and-coming and 
established talent, an award-winning production team, and that electric bit of 
unpredictable energy from a live studio audience," said Corrie Coe, Senior 
Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. 
"We couldn't be more excited to bring such a classic genre of comedy to 
Canadian viewers," said Co-creator, Writer, and Executive Producer Brent 
Piaskoski, Project 10 Productions. "We're all huge fans of multi-cam. We've 
got great characters, compelling stories, and we're going for the laughs." 
From Gemini Award-winners Jeff Biederman (LIFE WITH DEREK,OVERRULED) and Brent 
Piaskoski (ACCORDING TO JIM, RADIO FREE ROSCOE), and co-creator Brian K. 
Roberts (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE DREW CAREY SHOW), SPUN OUT's ensemble 
cast features Dave Foley as the patriarchal boss of a fledging PR firm, 
staffed with people who can spin everyone's problems but their own. 
Set to premiere on CTV during the 2013-2014 broadcast season, SPUN OUT centres 
on 20-something Beckett Ryan (Paul Campbell, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), a 
struggling writer who ends up working at the public relations firm after 
suffering his own PR disaster. No matter how bizarre the cases are that the 
agency takes on, they pale in comparison to the workplace romances, rivalries, 
personal successes, and often hilarious failures of the close-knit and 
dysfunctional colleagues 
Rounding out the ensemble is Al Mukadam (RADIO FREE ROSCOE) as Beckett's 
lifelong friend and spin expert Nelson, Holly Deveaux (LESS THAN KIND) as 
Beckett's sassy ex-girlfriend Abby, Rebecca Dalton (THE L.A. COMPLEX) as the 
boss's daughter Stephanie, J.P. Manoux (COMMUNITY) as the loyal but 
self-important office nerd Bryce, and Darcy Michael who plays Gordon, the guy 
at work who always seems like he's about to be fired. 
SPUN OUTis produced by Project 10 Productions in association with CTV. 
Gemini Award winners Jeff Biederman (LIFE WITH DEREK, OVERRULED!) and Brent 
Piaskoski (ACCORDING TO JIM, RADIO FREE ROSCOE) are co-creators, writers and 
executive producers. Brian K. Roberts (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE DREW CAREY 
SHOW) is co-creator, director, and executive producer. Andrew Barnsley (HOT 
BOX) is executive producer. Sarah Fowlie is Director, Independent Production, 
Comedy, Bell Media. Corrie Coe is Senior Vice-President, Independent 
Production, Bell Media. Mike Cosentino is Senior Vice-President, Programming, 
CTV Networks. Phil King is President, CTV Programming and Sports.
