SEASON 2 OF HIT SERIES “THE FACE OF FURRY CREEK” AND ONLINE DIGITAL COMPANION TO DEBUT SEPTEMBER 8th, 2014

Toronto, Ontario – August 6th, 2014:  MKW Productions Inc., with the participation of OUTtv Network and the Bell New Media Fund, are pleased to announce the release of the second season of the television series and online companion project “The Face of Furry Creek” beginning Monday, September 8, 2014 8:30pm ET/7:30 PT on OUTtv Network and www.faceoffurrycreek.com.

Created by comedy writer, producer and actor Mark Kenneth Woods, the second season of the scripted comedy series follows a mountain resort community whose tourists are leaving in droves. It’s time to create a new tourism campaign to get those visitor dollars back! And what better way to find a tourism ambassador than a local reality show contest? With old favourites and plenty of new faces in town, 5 candidates compete, lie and cheat their way to becoming the new “Face of Furry Creek”.

A critical and ratings success, the second season promises even more laughs as Mark Kenneth Woods plays an astonishing 9 characters! Michael Venus, Amy Goodmurphy and Ryan Steele (currently starring on Amazing Race Canada) also return in multiple roles (and genders). Woods again wrote all 6 episodes of the new season which includes a musical episode, a parody of Duck Dynasty‘s “freedom of speech” fiasco and there’s even a plotline mirroring Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s antics.

In a unique melding of platforms, in each television episode, the fictional contestants are asked to create various videos that are then posted on our new media companion project www.faceoffurrycreek.comDesigned as the fictional contest website, each week the audience will have access to brand new, website-exclusive videos that they have seen the characters work towards in the television series. All for free.

The television series will air Mondays at 8:30pm ET/ 7:30 PT on OUTtv Network in Canada beginning September 8th, 2014 with the related digital media being posted during each new weekly episode. The first season is also available on gaydirect.com and will be added to iTunes  Canada, US, UK, France, Brazil and other territories soon.

Hiya all. Just a quick update. I’m still here. Just been hiding indoors writing away on season 2% of The Face of Furry Creek and let me tell you, it’s even weirder and funnier than season 1. You can expect many of your favourite characters to return alongside several new characters. We just shot the first half of season 2% in Whistler, British Columbia and, while I can’t reveal too much, here are a couple pics from the shoot. Want to see more of us weirdos as we shoot?

MKW Productions Announces “The Face of Furry Creek – Season 2”

6 Nov

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MKW Productions Announces “The Face of Furry Creek – Season 2”

Toronto, Ontario – Nov 4th, 2013: Canadian writer, actor, director and producer Mark Kenneth Woods and MKW Productions have secured a deal with OUTtv, with the participation of the Bell Media Fund, to produce a second season of Woods’ original scripted comedy series “The Face of Furry Creek”.

The second season will again consist of 6 television episodes and an original digital companion project designed as the contest website within the plot of the television series. Viewers will be urged to visit the faceoffurrycreek.com website to see original media-based contest assignments “made by” the fictional characters in each weekly television episode. Ranging from videos to ongoing online voting, the mobile and tablet-friendly website will provide viewers with the continuing opportunity to engage in the television series beyond their TV screens.

The cult hit that Blouin ArtsInfo called “gutsy satire that deserves more attention” and Homorazzi called “clever and entertaining” will follow the lives of the fictitious citizens of the small mountain town of Furry Creek as last year’s winner faces challenges during their reign and a new contest gets underway.

The mockumentary series will again star Woods, Michael Venus, Ryan Steele and Amy Goodmurphy in multiple roles.

Woods, whom will also act as executive producer, will write all 6 episodes of the second season.

Production will begin in Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia in February, 2014 and the series is expected to debut in Canada in the summer of 2014.

Gurl!

25 Jul

While we are in the midst of the re-airing of “The Face of Furry Creek“, I don’t want to spoil too much, but it looks like there has been trouble in paradise since the show aired the first time. I posted this unofficial video of Furry Creek’s bros seriously bonding in a parody of the greatest music video in the history of life: Destiny’s Child‘s “Girl“. My version is appropriately called “Gurl” and I’m Beyonce. Obviously.

Switch it to HD!


Here’s the original DC music video for comparison.

Furry Creek: From The Beginning

15 Jul

As if the first time wasn’t enough, you can now watch “The Face of Furry Creek” all over again on OUTtv starting tonight July 15th and running right through again until August 19th. The show will re-run in its original time slot of Mondays at 9pm et/pt with repeats throughout the week. Check OUTtv for times.

Watch the show that Blouin ArtsInfo called “gutsy satire that deserves more attention” and Homorazzi called “clever and entertaining…I’m hooked”. And let’s not forget omgblog‘s articulate “Furry Creek (is) the sort of place where its right eyes looks in one direction whilst the left eye flits around a lot…I just can’t stop twerking to it“. Oh, just watch it already. It’s actually really good. And don’t forget to check out the contestants’ photos, blog posts and 36 additional videos online!

MKW Interviews Jinkx Monsoon

10 Jul

I was able to take a wee break from annoying people all weekend on the microphone as Face of Furry Creek news anchor Mario Mancini at OUTtv‘s media tent during Toronto Pride this year. So I ripped off those curly locks for a moment to interview the fabulous and genuinely sweet Jinkx Monsoon for OutlookTV/OUTtv! With my green contacts and moustache still intact (ugh), I talked to the Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 5 winner about her cross-country tour of Canada, her first time out of the US and what makes a Jinkx show special. Check it out below!
