Jason Priestly stars in this adult comedy as a used car salesman who has a thing for the glory days of the Rat Pack. If you meet him he will tell you to "Call Me Fitz" but his name is Richard Fitzpatrick.
Where Call Me Fitz deviates from the norm is not in its casting or in its extreme profanity. It is much more fundamental than that. After recovering from a horrible crash over a cliff during a test-drive that leaves a customer in a comma Fitz finds there is a new guy at the dealership. Larry. Larry is a brilliant salesman and Ken loves that. Larry claims that he is the embodiment of Fitz' suppressed conscience.

The show is set somewhere 'this side of Detroit' which is not that far from an Amish community. Though made and austensibly set in Canada the show is full of ambiguity with a favour to implying it is in the United States. The creator of the show and i got in a bit of a tiff about this. I picked a random episode and pointed out all of the Americanisms found in it. Turns out she wrote that episode. She had no response.
