The Beaverton (TV series)

''The Beaverton'' is a Canadian news satire television comedy series, which premiered on The Comedy Network in 2016. Based on the satirical online publication of the same name, the series follows the format of a mock television newscast, parodying both the content and the form of contemporary television news.

The show stars Miguel Rivas and Emma Hunter as the anchors, with Laura Cilevitz, Aisha Alfa, Marilla Wex, Dave Barclay and Donavon Stinson as correspondents, and Pat Smith and Luke Gordon Field as hosts of the ''Beaverton Sports Network'' segment. Numerous Canadian actors, comedians and other media personalities have also appeared on the show in supporting character roles as interview guests. Field is also one of the show's producers, and the editor of the parent website.

Pier 21 Productions announced in July 2015 that a pilot was in development. In June 2016, the Comedy Network confirmed that it had picked up the series for airing in the 2016-17 television season. In June 2017 Beaverton was greenlit for season 2 in press release by Bell Media Studios.

The series debuted on November 9, 2016. Because the first episode was taped before, but aired after, the date of the 2016 United States presidential election, the program prepared and filmed two different introductions based on both possible outcomes.

In the third season, originals began debuting on CTV. Provided by Wikipedia
