About the Show

Created by Mike Clattenburg (Trailer Park Boys, Black Jesus) and co-created by recording artist Mike O'Neill (Moving Day, Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It), new unconventional family comedy series CRAWFORD (12x30) centres around a young man who, after a run of bad luck, moves back in with his parents and turns his natural ability to relate to raccoons into a successful business, all while navigating life with his eccentric family.

The world of CRAWFORD is a familiar yet unusual one. When raccoons invade the world’s most functioning dysfunctional family’s home, they help breathe life and new meaning into the odd behaviours of the family. Jill Hennessy (Shots Fired, Crossing Jordan) is Cynthia (aka Mom), an award-winning cereal executive struggling to deal with the stress of juggling work with the needs of her husband, Owen, and her lover. John Carroll Lynch (The Founder, American Horror Story) is family patriarch and former police chief Owen, who is unable to use his voice due to a medical condition and communicates via his smartphone. Kyle Mac (Miss Sloane, 21 Thunder) is Don, ‘temporarily’ crashing at his parents’ after being dropped by his music label. Much to his surprise, he soon finds his calling as a raccoon whisperer. Older sister Wendy (Alice Moran; Sunnyside, Man Seeking Woman) and younger brother Brian (Daniel Davis Yang; Riverdale) aren’t too surprised by Don’s return and welcome him back - sort of - they have issues of their own. It’s weird, but in CRAWFORD weird is the new normal.

Filmed on location in Toronto in spring and summer 2017.

Produced by Rabbit Square Productions for CBC in Canada and Comedy Central in the U.S., CRAWFORD is executive produced by Laura Michalchyshyn and Mike Clattenburg. The series is written by Mike Clattenburg, Mike O’Neill, Zoe Whittall (Baroness von Sketch Show, The Best Kind of People), Kathleen Phillips-Locke (Sunnyside, The Ron James Show), Monica Heisey (Baroness Von Sketch Show, I Can't Believe It's Not Better) and Timm Hannebohm (Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day, Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys).

Janice Dawe and Kathy Avrich-Johnson are co-executive producers for Bizable Media (Saving Hope, A Better Man). Line producer is Suzanne Colvin-Goulding (The Girlfriend Experience, The Virgin Suicides). Series cinematography by David Makin (Reign, Beauty and the Beast), production design by Rupert Lazarus  (Eyewitness, Shoot the Messenger) and costume design by Aline Gilmore (Indian Horse, Game On). Content Media handles international distribution for the series. CRAWFORD is produced with the participation of the Canada Media Fund.
