Some men are born sleazy, some achieve sleaziness, and then there's Richard "Fitz" Fitzpatrick. Call Me Fitz, starring Jason Priestley as Fitz is a biting, dark comedy about a morally bankrupt yet charismatic used-car salesman who is forced to become business partners with his inner conscience.
Fitz is the star salesman in his father's used car dealership, but he is also a handsome, substance-abusing scoundrel who hits on any woman with a pulse.
When a car accident unleashes the last unblemished corner of Fitz's damaged soul, Larry appears and, claiming to be Fitz's conscience, begins the task of rehabilitating his mangled psyche – one twisted disaster at a time.
The series was developed by Amaze Film + Television and is produced by Amaze Film + Television, Big Motion Pictures and Entertainment One, with the financial participation of The Movie Network and Movie Central.
