Whiskaye Films is very excited to announce that they will be working with Lucy Stewart and Kevin Wallis of Don Ferguson Productions to develop and produce their comedic series Hardly Men for the web and television. The combined experience and knowledge of all of those working at DFP is a huge asset to the project and we are very excited to be working with some of the nicest and most talented producers of comedy in Canada. We cannot think of a better partnership to bring this brilliant series to life.

Hardly Men is based on the Canadian Comedy Award-winning play Peter n’ Chris and the Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel, from the acclaimed sketch duo of Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson. The series parodies and pays homage to their favourite horror, slasher, and mystery films and television shows.
