Next Episode of Made in Canada is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
A satire of film and television production, the series revolves around Pyramid Productions, a nest of incompetence, greed and backstabbing. The staff of Pyramid try to manage the complications provided by the casts and crews of their film and television productions. The company's cash cows are two series, The Sword of Damacles, a parody of mythological adventure series such as Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys; and Beaver Creek, a parody of Canadian period dramas such as Anne of Green Gables and Road to Avonlea.
Richard is working on a children's show at the competing Prodigy Productions, but is brought back to Pyramid after the two companies merge in a leveraged takeover.
Alan fires the entire staff, jeopardizing a new Kiefer Sutherland project the company has only just secured.
Michael Rushton wants to direct an episode of Sword of Damacles, but even though that's in his contract, nobody wants to let him do it because he's an idiot. Victor's nephew Ted visits while on a break from drug rehab, and successfully ingratiates himself into the company by proposing a New Media division.
Beaver Creek is given an award by a conservative media watchdog group for promoting family values, just days before two of its stars are planning to come out as gay by marching in the Toronto Pride Parade. In trying to manage the potential public relations fiasco, Victor makes things worse and the gay community organizes a protest in front of the company's office. Richard convinces Alan to buy an option on an unpublished book, which turns out to be terrible.
Captain McGee, star of the company's acquired children's show is found out to be a wife-swapper with his girlfriend while a German executive is given the cold shoulder as Pyramid employees try to sell him Beaver Creek as being "young and hip".
Murray, an old business associate of Alan's, comes to visit after joining the church of Spirentology, claiming that he created Sword of Damacles and demanding royalty payments. Alan sends Victor to infiltrate the Spirentologists in order to convince Murray to drop the claim, but he ends up being drawn into the church as well. Richard and Veronica are both being secretly headhunted by a competing firm.
Beaver Creek lands legendary actress Dian Del Largo for a guest appearance during sweeps week, but she proves to be a diva who fires half the show's production staff. Richard is forced to call in Gino Empry to get things back on track.
Misapplying techniques he learned from a new book on management, Alan sets Richard up to figure out how to work an Asian character into Beaver Creek to increase its appeal to American audiences, and leaves Veronica out of the loop on business decisions so she'll think she's about to be fired.
After actually watching an episode of Beaver Creek for the first time and deciding that it's awful, Alan puts Victor, Richard and Veronica personally in charge of overhauling the show.
Staff morale is in the tank after Alan cancels the office Christmas party.
Tired of being taken for granted, Veronica decides to show how valuable she is by taking the entire afternoon off for a girls' lunch with Wanda and Lisa, leaving Richard, Alan and Victor to search in vain for an "unpaid" tax file that she actually paid a week before.
A journalist is writing an article on Pyramid. An office temp steals Alan's new script idea and sells it to NBC as a series pilot.
Alan orders the entire staff to undergo magnet therapy. Pyramid is working on a project to develop a school news program, but when Richard learns that Moses Znaimer has a similar program in development, he uses his magnets to erase Znaimer's tapes at the NATPE convention. Znaimer hires Richard to oversee Citytv Bogota in order to get him out of the way.
