Description

Unavailable on DVD or any online platforms, here is your chance to see Ken Finkleman’s hilarious mock-documentary, Married Life, the initial success of which launched the writer-director’s string of breakthrough productions at CBC starting with The Newsroom. Married Life has Finkleman playing a self-absorbed TV documentarian who follows a young Toronto couple from engagement through marriage. When George (Finkleman) begins to coach the couple (played by Robert Cait and Karen Hines) on what makes for satisfying television, the lines between reality and fiction begin to blur in most unpredictable ways. Also starring Jeremy Hotz, Mark Farrell and Rosemary Radcliffe. “As original and funny as anything I’ve ever seen on television in a long while” declared John Haslet Cuff in The Globe and Mail upon the show’s first airing.
