Life after cancellation? Bruce McCulloch says new broadcaster being sought for second season of Calgary-shot Young Drunk Punk

Bruce talks to the Calgary Herald about the future of Young Drunk Punk:

“I think we could get production going in four or five months just because we have scripts and know what we’re doing,” said McCulloch. “So we’re hopeful, but I’m also realistic and know how show business works. The fact that a lot of people have responded to the show is fantastic and also a little sad because I want to more of them. But I’ve been here many times.”

Three episodes have been written for a second season and McCulloch said he has not shortage of ideas of how the story arc could continue.

No, I’m not fucking doing that, man!” [Laughs.] Because I was young and stupid! And then someone approached me – Tim Sommer, who was at Atlantic at the time and who worked with Hootie and the Blowfish – and said, “Do you want to do a record?” And I was, like, “Yeah! I want to do a record!” Because, of course, growing up on records and not TV, it felt more important to me in some ways than doing my television series!

The Kids in the Hall might become men on the screen once again. So says Bruce McCulloch, a member of the landmark Canadian comedy troupe.

“I think we will do something,” the 54-year-old Alberta native said in a recent interview.

“We’re in discussions now about what it would be. The last time we went on tour, Death Comes to Town came out of it. And I think now we’re thinking, ‘Do we want to do a limited series? A sketch thing? A weird Christmas special?’ ”
