Canadian comedy troupe the Kids in the Hall have reunited to shoot an 8-part comedic murder-mystery series called Death Comes to Town, according to Variety. Five members of the group — Bruce McCulloch, Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and ScottThompson — will star in the series, which is set in a small town and examines what happens when nearly all the town’s distinguished citizens are murdered. Death will air on Canadian broadcaster CBC in January, and plans have not yet been announced for a possible premiere in the U.S. The comedy troupe’s eponymous show ran on CBS and HBO in the early 1990s.
