CALL ME FITZ Returns For Season 2 on DirecTV

Television’s most lovable scoundrel returns when  Call Me Fitz  begins its second season  onThursday, November 3 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on DIRECTV ’s Audience Network. Jason Priestley ( My Name is Earl , Beverly Hills 9021 0) stars in this dark yet brilliant comedy series  as Richard “Fitz” Fitzpatrick, a morally bankrupt, yet charismatic, used-car salesman who is forced to become business partners with his inner “conscience” – a lanky do-gooder named Larry. Priestley has earned rave reviews and multiple award nominations  for his performance  as Fitz, the handsome, substance-abusing scoundrel who torments his naive co-workers, stoops to shameful lows to beat the competition and makes no apologies for his  shameless  womanizing. The start of the second season finds Fitz incapacitated by a series of recurring nightmares in which he is shackled to a wheel of death before a shadowy, knife-throwing figure – who may or may not be the new office manager Dot Foxley. Ever the pragmatist, Larry believes Fitz is simply anxious about not being able to sell cars, a theory quickly discarded after a psychic tells Fitz the nightmare is actually a prophecy. Unless Fitz makes amends to the “person he’s wronged”, he is marked to die. Read More...
