Canadian series Baroness von Sketch Show is set to make its US debut this summer. IFC announced today that it’s acquired the all-female sketch comedy series and will air 13 episodes of season 1 and 2 in sometime in late summer. The half-hour show is written by and starring Meredith MacNeill, Carolyn Taylor, Aurora Browne, and Jennifer Whalen, originally debuted on Canada’s CBC last year, and won Canadian Screen Awards for best variety/sketch comedy series, best sketch/variety writing, and best sketch/variety editing. Here’s more info from the press release:
Fast-paced and irreverent, Baroness von Sketch Show and its all-female cast draws upon 15 years of comedy experience and multiple collaborations to present an insightful, emotionally grounded series that captures the banalities and humor that comes from just trying to get along in the world. Offering a witty take on everyday concerns from the pretentiousness of ordering a fancy coffee to office and sexual politics, this satirical sketch comedy satirizes daily modern life.
