TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Television Producer Mark Satterthwaite is producing two new comedy shows titled "House Sitters" and "You and Me Both."
"Too many TV shows stay in a safe place and mimic others," Satterthwaite said. "I always want to bring something fresh and challenging."
Satterthwaite is known for producing Cartoon Network's "Almost Naked Animals" and Teletoon's "The Dating Guy."
"House Sitters" is about two hapless friends, played by Canadian stars Morgan Waters and Mark Little, who tend to different houses and find themselves in hilarious situations.
"You and Me Both" centers on an entrepreneurial couple, played by Comedians Matt Baram and Naomi Sniekus, that helps fledgling companies in Toronto, but discover it's their own relationship that needs assistance.
"I've been working with Canada's top comedic talents to bring their starring vehicles to TV," Satterthwaite said. "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."
