Mr. D starts production on Season 5 in Halifax

(Halifax, NS) June 25, 2015 – Principal photography on Mr. D – the hit CBC series starring comedian Gerry Dee – is under way in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The show, a comedy exploring the staff and student dynamics at a private school, is based on the stand-up comedy act of Dee, who himself taught for nine years before transitioning to a career in comedy. It revolves around the eponymous Mr. D, an under-qualified and unmotivated teacher trying to fake his way through work – and life.

MRD SEASON 5 PRODUCTION STARTS Gerry Dee

At the end of Season 4, Gerry Duncan lost his job at Xavier Academy after unwittingly provoking the death of an ill colleague. Season 5 opens at the start of the next school year.

“He is really in a downward spiral. He’s desperate, and when Gerry’s desperate, funny things usually happen,” says Dee of his on-screen persona.

Meanwhile, vice-principal Robert Cheeley (Jonathan Torrens), attempts to reinvent himself as a cool, carefree surfer dude after losing out on the promotion to Xavier’s new principal, which went to Lisa Mason (Lauren Hammersley).

Mr. D also stars Bette MacDonald (Trudy), Naomi Snieckus (Bobbi), Darrin Rose (Bill), Mark Little (Simon), Wes Williams (Paul), Suresh John (Malik), Kathleen Phillips (Emma) and Bill Wood (Frank).

“It’s truly exciting to be embarking on the fifth season of the show,” says Executive Producer Michael Volpe of Halifax-based Topsail Productions. “We have an amazing team and we can’t wait to take Mr. D into new territory for Season 5.”

Mr. D is produced by Topsail Productions Limited and Gerard ADHD Entertainment Inc., in association with CBC. It shoots in studio and on location in and around Halifax through early September.
