Earlier this year, the original workplace sitcom received four CSA nominations, including Best Comedy Series and Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Comedic Role (Dave Foley). SPUN OUT won a CSA for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role or Guest Role in a Comedic Series category (Lauren Ash).
SPUN OUT centres on Dave Lyons (Dave Foley, KIDS IN THE HALL), the head of an established PR firm, staffed with people who can spin everyone's problems but their own. New this season, Beckett (Paul Campbell, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) tries to execute the perfect casual relationship with a documentary filmmaker, Dave goes head to head with his ex-wife from a rival PR firm, and Stephanie (Rebecca Dalton, THE L.A. COMPLEX) must work with an old sorority sister whose oversized yoga line, "Blue Whale," lands her in hot water.
In the Season 2 premiere of SPUN OUT, entitled "My Brother's Speaker" (Tuesday, July 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), when Nelson's (Al Mukadam) DJ-ing brother Ray (Red, White, and Brown) stops by, Nelson plans a big industry showcase for him. Ray shows up hours late, and Nelson learns his brother's true passion may not be music at all. Beckett is over the moon when Dave wants to spend time with him outside of work, but there's more to Dave's motives than meets the eye. Stephanie and Abby (Holly Deveaux) plan a poker night with Gordon (Darcy Michael) and Bryce (J.P. Manoux), but when the guys end up winning, the girls think they've been hustled.
