Jim Gaffigan To Play Rob Ford in new television series

Produced by Ed Helms and directed by Michael Dowse

The story of our Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will be brought to light in an AMC limited series, with comedian Jim Gaffigan playing the role of the eccentric mayor. The show will be director by Michael Dowse (Goon, Fubar).

The show is described as a dark comedy and will detail the rise and fall of the controversial Ford, who served as the mayor of Toronto from 2010 to 2014 after many years as a city councilor. He made international headlines when he was caught on video smoking crack cocaine. Ford passed away from pleomorphic liposarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 2016 at age 46.
