Ernie Grunwald among actors joining Jason Priestley in sitcom

TORONTO -- Ernie Grunwald ("King of the Hill"), Peter MacNeill, Tracey Dawson and Kathleen Munroe have joined the Jason Priestley-starring Canadian pay-TV comedy "Call Me Fitz," from producer-writer Sheri Elwood ("Defying Gravity").

Rounding out the cast is Donavon Stinson ("Reaper"), Brooke Nevin and Gillian Ferrier, with Rachel Blanchard and Joanna Cassidy attached in recurring roles.

The 13-part Canadian comedy for the Movie Network and Movie Central from Amaze Film & Television, E1 Entertainment and Big Motion Pictures stars Priestley as a used-car salesman walking a fine line of acceptable behavior on the lot alongside a new salesman, do-gooder Larry, who becomes his alter-ego.

The Canadian sitcom is shooting in Nova Scotia and is set for a 2010 debut.
