After receiving critical acclaim for its half-hour drama debut, Blackfly became a 13-part comedy series from Salter Street Films, producers of This Hour Has 22 Minutes. This comedic half-hour series satirized the social and political history of Canada in a politically incorrect fashion. Set in the 18th century in the fur trading post of Fort Simpson-Eaton, Blackfly was created by and starred Canadian comedian Ron James as Benny "Blackfly" Broughton. Also starred Colin Mochrie, Richard Donat, James Kee, Shauna Black, Cheri Maracle, Lorne Cardinal and Marcel Jeannin.
