Watch the Trailer for Hamilton-Centric Series 'This Is the Thing'
The Ontario-set show premieres on Bell Fibe TV1 today
Published May 17, 2021Picture this: Hamilton, ON. Mike Mitchell and Tim Ford are two record store employees in their 30s. But they want to be more than that — they want to be famous. While chasing their respective dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian and a YouTuber, they have to deal with unruly rockstars, stage fright and hecklers — oh, and retail customers.
Thankfully, "Hamilton is where dreams go to fight."
All of this comes together in This Is the Thing, a new series that features cameos from B.A. Johnston, the Dirty Nil, Sam Coffey and the Iron Longs, Terra Lightfoot, Ed the Sock and the Redhill Valleys. Directed by Tyler Shazma, the series was co-written by Shazma, Mitchell and Brandon MacIntosh, and produced alongside Ashley Sloggett.
The series is out today on Bell Fibe TV1, and to give you a better idea what's in store, you can now watch a trailer to This Is the Thing down below.
As previously reported, each episode of This Is the Thing has music and/or comedy performances. It will consist of five 12-minute episodes, plus accompanying web content.
