The list of websites that have been turned into successful TV shows is short—Wikipedia Tales, Gmail And Ronald, and Frasier to name most—but that hasn’t stopped us from taking one of Canada’s best online experiences and giving it the filmed treatment.
 
The Beaverton will make its long-awaited television debut on Comedy on November 9th at 10:30ep, the day after America votes on its next Sith Lord. Based on the satirical website of the same name, the show will be helmed by anchors
Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas who have spent years honing their craft on the stages and backrooms of Toronto’s comedy scene. Joining them is an exciting unit of experienced mammals including hard-hitting news reporter Aisha Alfa; arts and culture correspondent and resident provocateur Donavon Stinson; no-nonsense financial correspondent Laura Cilevitz; and sharp-tongued foreign correspondent, Marilla Wex.
 
If you find yourself wondering, “What is this show going to be about? I know it’s not a town comprised of beavers because that would infringe on the show Beaverville that I had previously trademarked”, then here’s an official taste of stories you’ll soon be sipping upon:
