Spun Out is a Canadian television sitcom that premiered March 6, 2014 on CTV.[1]

On August 9, 2016, the official Spun Out page was no longer available on the CTV website. However, a cached copy on Google indicated that the page was still up on August 7, 2016. [2] As of December 1, 2016, the show has not returned.


The series stars Dave Foley as Dave Lyons, the head of DLPR, a public relations firm staffed with people "who can spin everybody's problems but their own".[3] The cast also includes Paul Campbell, Rebecca Dalton, Al Mukadam, Holly Deveaux, J. P. Manoux and Darcy Michael.[3]

First season

The series had 13 episodes in its first season.

Episode 7, titled "Middle Aged Men in the Hall", featured guest appearances by all of Foley's The Kids in the Hall castmates — Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney, Scott Thompson and Kevin McDonald — as his former high school bandmates in a Goth rock band, who visited to demand that Dave honour a suicide pact that they had made in their youth.[4]

Spun Out was renewed for a second season with the same number of episodes.[5]

Second season

The second season finished filming on December 5, 2014. A sneak preview of the program's season premiere was slated to air on February 1, 2015 after CTV's broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX, with the full season run slated to air beginning in March 2015.[6]

However, on January 26, as a direct response to J. P. Manoux's arrest on voyeurism charges, CTV put the program on hiatus "indefinitely".[7] Manoux appeared in all 13 episodes, making it impossible for the network to simply air a shortened run of the series by excluding his episodes. The post-Super Bowl slot was reassigned to the season premiere of MasterChef Canada.[6]

The network later clarified that the series was not cancelled, but would eventually air. According to network executive Phil King, "I think it’s wildly unfair that you have a whole cast of people who put their livelihood into this and we’re not going to see this because someone did something inappropriate."[8] CTV later announced the second season of Spun Out would begin airing July 14, 2015.[9]

The Season 2 premiere featured a guest appearance by comedian Russell Peters.[9]
