Synopsis

White Guys is a satirical comedy about four of the most privileged humans on earth & the tragic issues of their daily lives. Like; where to find ethically sourced cocaine, or why can't I say the N-word if I'm just rapping along to a hip hop song? Vital 'White Guy' issues.
Inspired by shows like The Colbert Report, White Guys puts four more white guys on TV in order to shed light on the lack of diversity on our TV screens. To further the point, the White Guys will be supported by a culturally/sexually diverse cast that truly represents Canadian society.
White Guys is a searing indictment of the Canadian TV industry, a love letter to our country & a hope for a future we can all be apart of.

    I think this could be a tough one to get right, but so right to do nonetheless. In what ways can you use this as a vehicle to address colonization issues as well?

    funny but is the proposed show 'white guys' or 'buds'. extra layer of 'show within a show' bit confusing.
