About Son of a Critch

Based on Mark Critch’s award-winning, best-selling memoir, Son of a Critch is the hilarious and very real story of 11-year-old Mark coming of age in St. John’s, Newfoundland in the 80s. It’s a heartfelt window into the life of a child – much older inside than his 11 years – using comedy and self-deprecation to win friends and connect with the small collection of people in his limited world. Filmed in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the comedy stars Critch as his father; Benjamin Evan Ainsworth (The Haunting of Bly Manor, Pinocchio) as young Mark; and Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) as Pop. Additional cast members include Claire Rankin (Molly’s Game) as Mark’s mother, Mary, alongside newcomers Sophia Powers and Mark Rivera, classmates of young Mark.

A CBC original comedy, Son of a Critch is created by Mark Critch and Tim McAuliffe (The Office, Last Man on Earth and MacGruber) and produced by Andrew Barnsley (Schitt’s Creek). The series is an inter-provincial co-production between Barnsley’s Project 10 Productions Inc. and Newfoundland-based Take the Shot Productions in association with CBC and Lionsgate Television, and is executive produced by Critch, McAuliffe, Barnsley, Ben Murray and Allan Hawco. Renuka Jeyapalan and Anita Kapila serve as co-executive producers with Jeyapalan directing the first four episodes of the series.

This show is broadcast on CBC.
