Former Rick Mercer Report and Still Standing writer Tim Steeves has joined as creative director, with stand-up comic and writer George Westerholm named head of development.

Home Invasion Studios has produced Jeff Leeson’s one-hour comedy special Grandma Used to Heckle Me, in association with Barodge Entertainment. Filmed at the Music Hall in London, ON, the special was directed by Merry, who produced alongside Ezz Fadel. No distribution partners are yet attached to the project.
