Welcome to the Hamilton Film Podcast, where I document all of the exciting happenings of the film industry in Hamilton Ontario. In Season 3 we’re going to dig deep into some of the remarkable film and television shows that have been filmed here, and feature prominent Hamilton storylines.
I chat with creator Lisa Crawford and writer Kim Lombard about the Bell Fibe TV1 prison comedy “Pink Is In”. The show takes place in the fictional Chatsworth Hamilton Prison, following the administration's hilarious attempt to run a private facility. In addition to their behind-the-scene roles, they both act in the series: Lisa as an inmate Nezrenko, and Kim as the inept CEO Pip Barnett. We talk about the process of getting a show picked up by Bell Fibe TV1, the benefits and challenges of a Hamilton-based production, different styles of comedy, and what’s next for this unique series.
