Kevin Smith’s ‘Spoilers’ Moves from Hulu to Canadian Television
Hulu is losing director Kevin Smith’s popular film review show “Spoilers.” The show, which features Smith and guests candidly talking about new movies, will air its second season exclusively on Canada’s The Comedy Network.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, season two of “Spoilers” will contain 10 half-hour episodes, which are all being filmed in Los Angeles at the end of the year. Season two will also apparently have higher production quality than that of Season One to align more with Canadian TV standards.
The partnership was ironed out by Smith’s independent media company SModCO and Canadian production company Halfire-CORE Entertainment.
Bell Media, the parent company of Comedy Network previously worked with “Spoilers,” airing the first season on the Space TV channel.
Catherine MacLeod, senior VP of specialty channel at Bell Media, explained that Canadians have a special connection to Smith as a public figure and director.
The second season of “Spoilers” is being produced by Jordan Monsanto, with Noreen Halpern serving as executive producer. Lifelong friend of Smith, Jason Mewes, and Jennifer Schwalbach (Smith’s wife) are associate producers on the show.Tags: Bell Media, Hulu, Kevin Smith, spoilers, The Comedy Network
