New 'Kids in the Hall' series sounds like the weirdest thing ever

"It's like a comedy 'Roots.'" That's really all you need to know about the new series from Canadian comedy gods The Kids in the Hall.

The plot, about a series of murders in a small town and the resulting trial that reveals many of the town's darkest secrets, sounds singularly bizarre as far as comedy shows go. But the Kids have proven adept at mining comedy gold out of morbid topics, and in legal settings no less.

The show is set to air early next year in Canada, and presumably later here. For more, check out the article at
