OK TV

A city councillor proposes a ‘friendlier’ stop sign in this comic news spoof.

Creative team

Writer/producer: Michael McMurtry
Director: Chris Deacon

Director’s statement

Chris Deacon says:

OK TV was conceived as a showcase for Michael McMurtry and several of the characters he’s created over the years. He wrote the script in a few days and we shot on the fly over the course of a very long day, calling in favours from many generous people.

In an impressive display of chameleon-like gymnastics, Michael underwent six full hair, makeup and costume changes throughout the day; unabashedly stripping down behind trees, parked cars and in university corridors while we raced from location to location. Next time we’ll budget for an A.D.!”
