Kids In The Hall returns for 8 Episodes

CANADA/ENTERTAINMENT - It's been a long 20 years for fans of the famed Canadian comedy troupe Kids In The Hall.

Their self-titled show debuted on the CBC back in 1988, but the five members went their separate ways in 1994.

Now they're back with an eight episode miniseries, cheerfully entitled "Death Comes To Town."

As in the original, the actors - Dave Foley, Mark McKinney, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch and Scott Thompson - will play a variety of roles.

It won't be the first time they've gotten back together. Earlier this year, they re-united for a cross-Canada tour.

"The Kids In The Hall are exactly the same only we're older," joked McDonald at the time. "Now we're smart...we're smart about banking things," he added.

"We still want to do stuff together because we still have this knowledge of each other and comfort with each other in terms of comedy that we don't have anywhere else. You don't have to worry about saying something [offensive]. A Kid in the Hall is never going to say, "Oh no, that's over the line. That's not funny," said Dave Foley.
