Hatching, Matching and Dispatching

Hatching, Matching and Dispatching

"Hatching, Matching and Dispatching" was a Canadian television sitcom series. The CBC Television show starred Mary Walsh as Mamie Lou Furey, the matriarch of a family in Newfoundland and Labrador who own a combination ambulance, wedding and funeral business. The remaining cast included Shaun Majumder, Mark McKinney, Rick Boland and Susan Kent.

The series pilot aired January 17, 2005 as one of three CBC sitcom prototypes which included "Getting Along Famously" and "Walter Ego". The CBC employed a viewer response poll to gauge interest in these pilots, a technique previously employed with the shows "Rideau Hall" and "An American in Canada".

"Hatching, Matching and Dispatching" began shooting its first season of six episodes on July 18, 2005 and began airing as a regular series on January 6, 2006 with six episodes, following a rebroadcast of the original pilot on 30 December 2005.
