Television's most lovable scoundrel returns when Call Me Fitz begins its second season.
Jason Priestley stars in this dark yet brilliant comedy series as Richard "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, a morally bankrupt, yet charismatic, used-car salesman who is forced to become business partners with his inner "conscience" - a lanky do-gooder named Larry.
Priestley has earned rave reviews and multiple award nominations for his performance as Fitz, the handsome, substance-abusing scoundrel who torments his naive co-workers, stoops to shameful lows to beat the competition and makes no apologies for his shameless womanizing.
The start of the second season finds Fitz incapacitated by a series of recurring nightmares in which he is shackled to a wheel of death before a shadowy, knife-throwing figure - who may or may not be the new office manager Dot Foxley.
Ever the pragmatist, Larry believes Fitz is simply anxious about not being able to sell cars, a theory quickly discarded after a psychic tells Fitz the nightmare is actually a prophecy.
Unless Fitz makes amends to the "person he's wronged", he is marked to die.
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.
Executive produced by Sheri Elwood, the show was filmed in New Minas, Nova Scotia and boasts a strong ensemble cast including Ernie Grunwald as Larry, Donovan Stinson, Peter MacNeill, Kathleen Munroe, Brooke Nevin, Husein Madhavji, Phyllis Ellis, Joanna Cassidy, Rachel Blanchard and Jonathan Torrens.
