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.

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.

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!
