Men With Brooms
TIMESLOTMondays @ 8:30pm on CBC.
SYNOPSISOn the surface, there’s not all that much to say about Long Bay. It’s a rural small town, much like any one of the thousand other small towns that dot the country – the corner doughnut shop, the struggling economy, the small manufacturers, the crazy characters… and the local five-sheet curling club, with carpet from the forties, and greasy fish & chips.
Men with Brooms picks up the ongoing story of Long Bay through the adventures and misadventures of four careworn young men brought together by a love of “shuffleboard-on-ice.” While not great curlers, they’re frequent curlers – and what they lack in talent, they make up for in enthusiasm. This new program based loosely on the movie of the same name, features Paul Gross as narrator of the series and Executive Producer.
