The third season finale of 19-2 airs Monday at 10 p.m. on Bravo. That gives Jared Keeso about two weeks before he has to jump right into production on Season Four.
In between, he’s been writing scripts — sometimes from the passenger seat of a car — for his CraveTV comedy Letterkenny. A second season of that show airs later this year. production on a third season will take place in January in Sudbury, as soon as Keeso is finished shooting 19-2.
Got all that? Keeso is working his tail off, but, hey, he’s only 32. It’s a nice problem for a Canadian actor to have: working two hit shows in Canada.
When I spoke with Keeso earlier this summer in Montreal at Just for Laughs, we talked about how his 19-2 squad mate, Adrian Holmes, was also doing double duty on the TVLand comedy “Impastor.”
“Holmes is there if something is shooting in Vancouver,” said Keeso. “He can do anything.”
Holmes credits back that up. In recent years, he’s appeared on several top Vancouver productions, including Arrow, Continuum, Motive, Cult and even Hallmark’s Cedar Cove.
Keeso says he’s especially glad Holmes is “polishing his comedy chops because he’ll be on Letterkenny soon.”
He hasn’t been cast yet, but Keeso already has an idea in mind. “I’m really pumped for that. If I have my way I’ll get everybody from 19-2 on Letterkenny eventually.”
