YTV is gearing up to debut Game On, a live-action comedy featuring two sports announcers (played by Samantha Bee and Jonathan Torrens) who provide play-by-play and color commentary on 14-year-old Toby Martin’s awkward, cringe-worthy life.
Set for a double-episode event launch on May 4 launch, the 20 x half-hour series from Montreal’s Ad Lib Films is directed by Jacob Tierney and stars Grayson Gurnsey in the lead role of Toby, a teen dealing with typical growing pains.
Game On turns the everyday disasters of Toby’s life into funny fodder for Bee and Torrens, who weigh his every move as a fumble, interception or goal.
The series also features Jamie Mayers as Toby’s best friend, and Jonathan Langdon as a sideline reporter who creates webisodes called The Wilf Diaries, which serve as Game On’s digital extension.
The additional online content is set to stream on YTV.com after the broadcast premiere of the series.
