The pull that Netflix has these days is undeniable.
The notion of Martin Scorsese doing a retrospective comedy special about a sketch comedy show wouldn’t have ever crossed our mind and yet, Netflix has not only gotten legendary auteur on board, but will have Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dave Thomas, Andrea Martin, and Joe Flaherty reunited in conversation next month.
Second City Television, AKA SCTV, is one of Canada’s most renowned comedy exports and came into prominence right alongside SNL.
If you’re keeping a score, Netflix has a movie about National Lampoon and this special about SCTV. Maybe next will be a mini-series about Channel 101?
