The date February 7 is known primarily for four major events:

In 1962 The United States bans all Cuban imports and exports, forcing American cigar aficionados to roll homemade stogies made of grass trimmings and dried out oak leaves.

In 1964 Beatles first arrive in U.S. and start off on the wrong foot by eating a bald eagle.

In 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics opened, introducing the world to a Russian city they’d soon forget about.

James Spader’s birthday.

These events will become irrelevant once the calendar strikes Sunday, February 7 in 2016 because all six half-hour episodes of  LETTERKENNY will premiere on CraveTV and will change television forever!

“With a distinctive voice and unmistakable tone, we’re very proud to feature LETTERKENNY as CraveTV’s first original series,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks and CraveTV. “LETTERKENNY is a brazen and exciting brand-builder for the service, so we thought it deserved to be launched on the juggernaut event day that is Super Bowl Sunday.”

The series is based on the Canadian Screen Award-nominated Letterkenny Problems YouTube series and stars 19-2’s Jared Keeso, and Nathan Dale as Wayne and Dale, two buds dealing with the inhabitants of their small Ontario town. As an added bonus, each streamed episode of LETTERKENNY will be accompanied by six brand new shorts. Beauty.   

CraveTV becomes available to all Canadians, regardless of cable package, this January but if you’re a traditionalist you’ll be able to catch the series on Comedy come springtime.  Keep your browser locked on thecomedynetwork.ca for further updates and get ‘er goin’ right now by checking out the shorts that launched the series!
