The 2002 curling movie Men With Brooms, recently given a positive plug by the Huffington Post, is back… on the small screen.
A pilot episode was filmed back in December, with the on-ice scenes taking place at the Dundas Granite club near Hamilton, Ontario, and word came down last week that CBC has picked up the series for the 2010-11 season.
Fans will remember the film version came out in 2002, just in time to tap into the Salt Lake City Olympic fever. In keeping with the imminence of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, here’s the CBC pickup news in German (!!), courtesy of Swiss TCN reader Martin Stucki.
The Curling News was privileged to be on set in Dundas, back in December, and we invite you to subscribe today – as we will have a full behind-the-scenes report, plus exclusive photos, in a future edition of the newspaper.
