Inuit language comedy back for another season
IBC's Qanurli's fourth season to kick off Sept. 1
Inuit language television fans have good reason to celebrate this weekend: Inuk Qablunaaq and Nipangi Huittuq are back for another season.
The popular Inuit Broadcasting Corp. comedy show, Qanurli, will premiere its fourth season Sept. 1 on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, said an Aug. 29 news release from IBC.
The Inuit language series promises more footage filmed on location in communities, more modern music and, of course, more laughs, the news release said.
“Think Wayne’s World meets Saturday Night Live, Inuk-style,” the release said.
This season, aired weekly on Monday evenings at 8 p.m. eastern, will feature plenty of guest appearances, including the Innuinait Drum Dancers of Cambridge Bay, cooking show host Rebecca Veevee and Johnny Issaluk.
They’ll also feature the popular Nunavik musicians Saali (Charlie Keelan) and Sinuupa (Etua Snowball.)
The show was created by IBC and is written and produced by Thomas Anguti Johnston, Stacey Aglok MacDonald and Joshua Conner Lee Qaumariaq.
The show’s stars, Johnston, who plays Inuk Qablunaaq ,and Vinnie Karetak, who plays Nipangi Huittuq, will return to the show, along with Wager Ford and Malaya Chapman, with regular guest appearances from Issaluk and Brian Tagalik.
“Season 4 is our most ambitious yet,” MacDonald said in the release.
