Canadian Comedy Icon Bruce McCulloch will take a leading role in Lakeside Animation’s new animated adult comedy, "Paralegal". The series follows Jerry, an eager to please junior lawyer, who teams up with Luther, a recently deceased super-slick attorney to create a law firm catering to ghosts. With the help of the legal and supernatural experts in Jerry’s own immediate family, they work together to right the wrongs that were done to their clients, living and/or dead. McCulloch will voice Jerry’s nemesis Marlon Brisk, a local crime lord and spirit medium.

So excited to be a part of this. What a unique and funny world created by such a talented group of people,” commented Mcculloch.
“We are thrilled about Bruce’s involvement in 'Paralegal'. He’s a comedy legend, a national treasure and he brings such an incredible energy to the show,” added Matt Lyon, CCO at Lakeside Animation Studios.

The series is created by Tim Blair (Tallboyz), Jeremy Dobski (Just For Laughs) and Matt Lyon (Arctic Dogs). Iouri Stepanov Lakeside Owner and Executive Producer and Aron Dunn, Chief Content Officer, will be presenting the project to networks, platforms, distributors and financiers at the Annecy Festival. The project is in active development. A fully illustrated pitch deck and pilot script are available. Lakeside plans to produce an animated teaser that will be available at MIPCOM in October.
