Chattanooga, Tenn. (August 28, 2018) – Luken Communications, LLC and The Heartland Network, LLC, in cooperation with S&S Productions, have announced the addition Gemini Award-winning comedy series The Red Green Show to the Heartland lineup. The series will premiere on Heartland September 4, 2018, with two episodes airing on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7PM ET/PT. The Red Green Show will also be offered on Heartland’s free Roku live streaming channel.
The thirty-minute series, offering a unique hybrid of sitcom and sketch comedy entertainment often parodying do-it-yourself and outdoor shows, originally ran for 15 seasons on CBC Television in Canada and PBS in America. The show stars Steve Smith as Red Green along with Patrick McKenna, Rick Green, Jeff Lumby, Wayne Robson, and Bob Bainborough.
Of the addition to Heartland, The Red Green Show creator and star Steve Smith said, “We look forward to our hopeless handyman, master of misadventure and self-delusional philosopher, Red Green, joining the Heartland lineup. Our fans tell us that The Red Green Show brand of comedy unites generations and we look forward to Heartland families having the same experience. Heartland fans, grab a roll of duct tape and your favorite beverage and let the fun begin!”
Terri Coyle, Luken’s Programming Director, said, “With its blue-collar charm and family-friendly fun, The Red Green Show is a perfect fit for Heartland. Viewers young and old will enjoy laughing along with this modern comedy classic.”
