TV show description:
Richard “Fitz” Fitzpatrick (Jason Priestley) is a morally bankrupt yet charismatic, used-car salesman. A handsome, substance-abusing scoundrel, Fitz torments his naive co-workers, stoops to shameful lows to get the best of the competition, and will sleep with any woman (as long as she has a pulse).
He’s forced to become business partners with his inner “conscience” — a lanky and offbeat do-gooder named Larry (Ernie Grunwald). He’s intent on healing Fitz’s mangled psyche — even if it’s one disaster at a time.
Other characters include Ken Fitzpatrick (Peter MacNeill), Fitz’ father and the patriarch of Fitzpatrick Motors; Meghan Fitzpatrick (Tracy Dawson), Fitz’s shrewish younger sister and a constant thorn in his side; Josh Mctaggart (Donavon Stinson), the Fitzpatrick Motors in-house mechanic; and Sonja Lester (Brooke Nevin), the company’s receptionist and Fitz’s former love interest.
Dot Foxley (Amy Sloan) is the office manager who has an inexplicable hate for Larry, a penchant for witchcraft, and a miniature model of Fitzpatrick Motors (complete with Fitz and Larry voodoo dolls) hidden in her apartment.
Episode #48 — A Very Special Fitzmas – Part II
After Larry uncovers evidence that there’s a lost family fortune, he has the leverage to persuade the rest of the Fitzpatrick clan to save Fitz from the clutches of Pat Childs’ evil O-Mo empire. But first, where is the money hidden? Thanks to the ghost of Christmas future, Fitz has been driven to drink once again. Later, the Fitzpatricks must expose Pat Childs for the fraud he is.
First aired: December 4, 2013.
