About the special:
Martin Scorsese will direct the untitled Netflix original comedy special exploring the enduring legacy of Emmy-winning sketch comedy show SCTV.
The Canadian classic SCTV aired for six seasons between 1976 and 1984, quickly becoming one of pop culture’s touchstone comedies. The series’ stars include some of the most beloved and celebrated names in laughter, including the late John Candy and Harold Ramis.
Moranis starred alongside Dave Thomas in Strange Brew, based on the SCTV characters Canada’s most famous hosers, Bob and Doug McKenzie. This was Moranis’ feature film debut.
