Aww Shucks is a narrative comedy TV series created and filmed on PEI. Megan Stewart stars as Steph, the mayor of Toronto-By-The-Sea, who holds a cooking competition to give away the town restaurant in hopes of attracting tourism back to the village after the Covid-19 pandemic. She expects superstar chefs to arrive but little does she know that her town rival, Harry James, has something more in store. Can Mayor Steph maintain control of this eccentric group of cooks or will she be eating crow?
Aww Shucks was co-wrtten by Kelly Caseley and Graham Putnam, directed by Caseley, and produced by Sharlene Kelly. The series consists of five episodes that range from 12–14 minutes and is now available exclusively on Bell Fibe TV1, on channel 1 and the Fibe TV app.
The show was shot over five days in Victoria-by-the-Sea with an all-local-to-PEI cast and crew. The Slippy When Wet Entertainment series stars Megan Stewart, Rebecca Parent, Jordan Cameron, Cameron Cassidy, Graham Putnam, and Ryan Doucette as Chef Andre.
Aww Shucks features a PEI soundtrack with KINLEY, Gordie MacKeeman, Joce Reyome, Emmet MacLellan, Sirene et Matelot, Jordan Cameron, Arsenal Mills, and Mi’kmaq Heritage Players.
Lead actress Stewart shares, “Shooting Aww Shucks over five days last October was a remarkable experience. The director and producer, Kelly and Sharlene, assembled an all-Island cast and crew, and the level of talent and professionalism on the shoot was a testament to the deep commitment from so many Islanders to create a really solid film scene on PEI. So much energy and heart were poured into the making of the show, and the end result is funny, poignant and charming. Viewers are going to be delighted by the quirky residents of Toronto-by-the-Sea!” Megan Stewart
