NEW YORK, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- My Damn Channel ( has joined forces with FourBoys Films, headed by actor and director David Hunt and his wife, Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Heaton, to produce and distribute Versailles (pronounced Ver-sayles), a new comedy series, debuting May 9, 2011. New episodes will premiere Mondays on My Damn Channel. A trailer for the series is available now at:

Created and directed by Hunt and his writing partner Rodney Vaccaro, the 8-part series focuses on a brother and sister as they desperately attempt to live out their fantasies and escape the legacy of their dearly departed mother, the late, great television star and B movie actress Evelyn Anders (Patricia Heaton). In Versailles, Evelyn's indelible legacy is still alive in the shape of her damaged son and daughter, Colin Tickler (David Hunt) and Summer Tickler-Hoogerhyde (Eve Gordon). The two siblings make a last ditch attempt at creating their own celebrity by hosting a public access sports talk show, broadcast from the basement of the local library, that is financed by Summer's devoted husband Hoyt Hoogerhyde (Fred Willard). The series also stars Martha MacIsaac (Greek, Superbad) and features hilarious appearances by William H. Macy who recounts his early experiences as a student of Evelyn.

"We found a fantastic partner in My Damn Channel," said David Hunt. "They are tremendously supportive of us, and are huge fans of the world that we created. Versailles is a deliciously comical place to spend your time. My Damn Channel's audience of devoted comedy fans are the type of sophisticated viewers that are sure to appreciate the characters populating Versailles."
"This series is one of those twisted comedies that you just can't stop watching," said My Damn Channel Founder/CEO Rob Barnett. "David Hunt heads an amazing cast who play unforgettable oddballs."
