“CALL ME FITZ is . . . a gloriously toxic black comedy. Jason Priestley is very fine as Richard Fitzpatrick, the car salesman from hell whose life unravels. The show keeps teetering on the edge of being redemptive, and then swings back to being about truly awful, despicable but wonderfully drawn characters. This is one comedy for grown-ups with irrepressible energy.”
– John Doyle, The Globe and Mail

TORONTO (September 24, 2013) – Raunchy, rambunctious, and ready to go! The Movie Network announced today early access to the half-hour Season 4 premiere of CALL ME FITZ, two weeks before the television broadcast debut. Starting today, the Season 3 finale and Season 4 premiere – featuring new guest star Michael Gross (FAMILY TIES) – are available to audiences on TMN GO, TMN OnDemand and TheMovieNetwork.ca, leading up to the broadcast premiere on Monday, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. ET on The Movie Network.
Starring Jason Priestley as morally flawed car salesman Richard “Fitz” Fitzpatrick, CALL ME FITZ’s fourth season comes hot on the heels of a hugely successful performance at the inaugural Canadian Screen Awards earlier this year. The homegrown comedy took home four awards, including Sheri Elwood for Best Direction, and Joanna Cassidy and Stuart Margolin in Best Performance categories.

In the nine-episode fourth season of the half-hour original comedy, things have certainly changed. With a new baby in the house - Elaine's swinging party pad, no less - Larry thinks it's the perfect time to dig out the family photo album, empty old boxes in the basement, and discover what made the Fitzpatricks the class-A derelicts they are today. Every new piece of the Fitzpatrick past that Larry uncovers sheds more light on the family’s twisted history and fuels the dysfunctional fire between them. By dredging up the past, Larry also unearths a nemesis hell-bent on eradicating the Fitzpatricks and their way of life – Pat Childs, played by new special guest star Michael Gross (FAMILY TIES).
CALL ME FITZ also features Peter MacNeill as Ken Fitzpatrick, Fitz's father and patriarch of Fitzpatrick Motors; Tracy Dawson as Meghan Fitzpatrick, Fitz's shrewish younger sister and thorn in his side; Donavon Stinson as Josh Mctaggart, the Fitzpatrick Motors in-house auto repair and wildcard; Kathleen Munroe as Ali Devon; Jonathan Torrens as Chester Vince; and Joanna Cassidy, who returns as Fitz's mother Elaine Fitzpatrick
