Today My Damn Channel launched Versailles (pronounced Ver-sales), a new original comedy starring David Hunt, Fred Willard, Martha MacIsaac, Eve Gordon, and featuring William H. Macy and Patricia Heaton.
The weekly 8 episode series is about a brother and sister who broadcast public access talk show You’re In Sports! from the basement of their local library in order to “live out their fantasies and escape the legacy of their dearly departed mother, a TV star and B-movie actress.”
Hoyt Hoogerhyde (Willard) finaces the public access sports talks show for his wife Summer Tickler-Hoogenhyde (Gordon) and her grown sibling Colin Tickler (Hunt). Hunt’s real wife Heaton plays the late mother, ’60s era B-movie actress Evelyn Anders (whose career included films No Phone of Her Own, It’s In The Jeans, Please Don’t Frug on My Bippy, Kill, Hippie! Kill! Kill!). Evelyn’s former student is hilariously portrayed by William H. Macy, as himself.
Versailles is produced by FourBoys Films (co-founded by Hunt and Heaton) and is directed by Hunt. New episodes on Mondays.
