The program featured a cast of Second City alumnae and special guests. In the regular cast were Eugene Levy, Jayne Eastwood, Ben Gordon and Mary Ann McDonald. Nancy White, John Kastner and the Homemade Theatre Co. made guest appearances during the series.

The series was written by Bob Sandler and produced and directed by Nigel Napier-Andrews.
