An American in Canada Wikipedia
An American in Canada is a Canadian television sitcom that aired on CBC.
The show starred Rick Roberts as Jake Crewe, an American television news host who was forced, after beating up his station manager, to accept a job in Calgary, Alberta as the host of the lowest-rated morning news program in the city. The show found its comedy in Crewe's attempts to adapt to Canadian culture.
An American in Canada was loosely based on the real-life experiences of Jebb Fink, an American comedian who moved to Canada after marrying a Canadian woman, and did become a morning television host on CKAL-TV, Calgary's A-Channel station.
It is also aired on Australia's The Comedy Channel with the title Frostbite, and is currently in syndication on Showcase in Canada and HDNet in the USA.
