Fred Ewanuick is a survivor himself. The Vancouver native is best known for playing Hank Yarbo on Corner Gas (2004-09.) For three seasons, he was Nick Papathanasiou on CTV’s Robson Arms (2005-08.) Regardless of what one thinks of Dan for Mayor – the show splitting off into “good” and “shit” camps, with little inbetween – Ewanuick deserves his Dan for Mayor starring role. Given his early background and acting career, Ewanuick’s taken the long road to television infamy.
Dan for Mayor‘s second season – which premiered Sunday, June 5 at 7:30 PM ET – mirrors Dan Phillips’ run for the mayorship of Wessex, Ontario. Dan didn’t really “win” the election so much as survive it. Dan for Mayor‘s second season is the result of an almost-across-the-board renewal of CTV’s 2010-11 output, as DfM‘s mid-season decline didn’t do the show any favours.
