    Well, sort of. Canadian-born writer/director/producer Paul Haggis is returning to episodic TV with "The Black Donnellys," a new show inspired by southern Ontario history turned folklore.

    "The show is loosely inspired by a tragedy that took place in southern Ontario where a family of black Irish farmers and homesteaders were massacred by the local population," Haggis says.

    "I decided to play on that, so I created this fictional neighbourhood in Manhattan where these black Irish kids, 18 to 22, find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into crime."

    "Black Irish" doesn't refer to skin colour, by the way. It's more indicative of economic standing or lack thereof.

    Ah, to hell with that.

    If I want to see real Canadian culture on TV, I'll watch Red Green reruns. :D

    I was hoping for the return of 'The Kids in the Hall.'
