The year 2008 brought us quite a few comebacks from the late-80’s/early-90’s era, and while most of them were completely unwarranted and unnecessary, (New Kids on the Block, “90210,” tight-rolled jeans) it also brought us the triumphant return of The Kids in the Hall. In the months following their highly successful “Live As We’ll Ever Be” tour — which featured almost entirely new material and marked the troupe’s first collaboration in six years — there have been rumblings of either a feature length or serial project. However, much like the possibility of an “Arrested Development” movie, the rumors have consisted of little more than hearsay and a partially filled-out IMDB page, and weren’t quite worth getting our hopes up for.

But now, Dave Foley has confirmed that all five members are in fact getting set to write the tentatively titled “Death Comes to Town,” which is definitely going to be in the form of a miniseries for the CBC. According to Foley, the series will be an “eight-episode arc with a narrative running through it [in which they] will play all the characters.” He goes on to say that comparatively, the series is hoped to resemble the British series “League of Gentlemen.”

Just going by how downright fucking fantastic the tour was, the news of a new scripted series fills me with so much unrestrained giddiness I could explode. For most of these guys pushing 50, they still put on one hell of a live show — and I’m absolutely titillated to see what they can do with this kind of endeavor. In the meantime, us die-hard KITH fans will just have to rely on DVDs and YouTube to get our fix. From their recent tour, here is “Dance Like This”:
