Original Comedy Series Alice, I Think Begins Production for CTV and The Comedy Network
Posted by : Tripster on Monday, September 12, 2005 - 01:50 PM

Principal photography begins immediately on the 13-part, half-hour series, based on the internationally-acclaimed books by BC author Susan Juby. Produced by Slanted Wheel Entertainment and Omni Film Productions in association with CTV and The Comedy Network, filming continues through November 10 in Vancouver and Langley, BC.

McKillip, a 16-year-old Vancouver native, has been acting since she was a child. She was cast in the once-in-a-lifetime role after a nation-wide search to find the perfect Alice. Over 60 young actors from across the country auditioned for the role. As Alice MacLeod, McKillip plays a 15-year-old girl with an oddball family facing the trials and tribulations of teenagedom in the small town of Smithers, BC.

"When we first saw Carly, we knew immediately that she was our Alice," said creator Susin Nielsen. "Carly understood that Alice was a complex character from the get-go."

Alice, I Think revolves around the misadventures of Alice's unconventional family as they encounter life's ups, downs and occasional absurdities. Created for television by Susin Nielsen, the show is co-executive produced by Nielsen and Gary Harvey, who also acts as lead director, reuniting the creative team behind this year's critically-acclaimed CTV/Omni series Robson Arms.

Alice, I Think is the second of three new original scripted series slated for production for CTV's 2005/06 schedule. Together with dramatic comedy series Jeff Ltd. and the one-hour drama Whistler, Alice I Think joins CTV's award-winning stable of original scripted programming including Corner Gas (Canada's No. 1 Comedy), Degrassi: The Next Generation (Canada's No. 1 Drama for Teens and Adults) and Instant Star, now receiving rave reviews in the United States on The N.

As Alice, McKillip plays a maladjusted teenager with a bizarre fashion sense that is painfully out of touch. Alice starts high school after years of home-schooling on the hunt for a look, a social life, a job and a boyfriend. Her mother Diane (Rebecca Northan, The Joe Blow Show) is the new-aged family breadwinner while her father John (Dan Payne, Stargate: Atlantis) is an endearing house-husband. Little brother MacGregor (Connor Price, Cinderella Man) is the brains of the outfit.
