Published Feb 28, 2013Fans of Toronto music will want to pay special attention to the upcoming new comedy series It Girl, since it will feature appearances from some of the city's finest indie talent in both acting and musical roles.
For one, It Girl features Darcys frontman Jason Couse, who will have a prominent role as "a playboy musician." And he will appear alongside members of Broken Social Scene, Fucked Up and Holy Fuck, who will all be making guest appearances in the series, while Toronto shoegazers Beliefs will provide the soundtrack. It's not entirely clear if Beliefs composed any new music for the show, but a note on the show's website notes that "Catch My Breath" will be featured.
The show stars Misty Fox as Wren Marlowe, a TV show host who is best friends with a musician named Max (played by Couse). Show creator and director Claire Edmondson said in a statement, "It Girl is a modern comedy series about an 'ageing' 30-year-old 'it girl' who is ready to move on from her coveted hipster status as she grapples with becoming an adult in a scene that doesn't let her grow up."
It's currently not entirely clear when and where It Girl will air, but check back to the show's website tomorrow (March 1) for a two-minute trailer.
Edmondson has previously directed music videos for bands like Broken Social Scene, Austra, and Gold and Youth.
