LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Comedian actors Morgan Waters, a two-time Gemini Award winner, and Mark Little, a Canadian Comedy Award nominee, have attached to principal roles for "House Sitters," a new comedy TV show from producer Mark Satterthwaite.
Catherine Tait, President of the independent production company Duopoly, is pitching "House Sitters" at Mipcom this month. "It's never been a more exciting time for content producers," she says.
Satterthwaite, known for producing Cartoon Network's "Almost Naked Animals" and Teletoon's "The Dating Guy," said, "I've been working with Canada's top comedic talents to bring their starring vehicles to TV. Working with an actor/comedian to get a concept right is exhilarating. Part of my job is to keep that integrity and to pitch a show to studios and networks to make sure they're palatable for the public."
The buddy sitcom "House Sitters" is about a hapless duo that find themselves in hilarious situations while tending to different house sitting jobs. Satterthwaite wrote, produced and directed the pilot episode, which can be screened at: http://regattafilms.com/housesitters.php

Satterthwaite confirmed he's also attached comedian actors Matt Baram and Naomi Snieckus for another show he's producing, "You and Me Both," which centers on an entrepreneurial couple that helps fledgling companies, but discover it's their own relationship that needs assistance.
Baram acted in the feature films "Take This Waltz" starring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, "The Love Guru" starring Mike Myers and Jessica Alba, "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" starring Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman and "Repo Men" starring Jude Law and Liev Schreiber.
