Mr. D & Republic of Doyle – Red Carpet Premiere Photos

Canada is home to the production of some of the greatest television shows and Monday January 9th 2011 was the kick start to two of Canada’s best: Republic of Doyle & Mr. D.

Republic of Doyle is about Malachy Doyle (Seán McGinley) and Jake Doyle (Allan Hawco), father and son, who partner together as private investigators in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador. This is the third-season for the show, bringing in new faces, new adventures and new things to complicate Jake’s life. Speaking of new faces: RUSSELL CROWE is a guest star. You can say OMG now.

Mr. D is based around stand-up comedian Gerry Dee and his experiences as a former private school teacher. Its all about an under-qualified teacher trying to fake his way through a teaching job, just as he keeps faking life!

Toronto was given a special red carpet premiere for both CBC shows, hosted at AMC Yonge & Dundas. See below for all the photos from the invite-only event!
