CTV wants more Brent Butt.
The network has commissioned a pilot for a new half-hour comedy series from Butt, who just wrapped filming on his wildly popular sitcom `Corner Gas.'
The new show, called `Hiccups,' will star Nancy Robertson, who played Wanda on `Corner Gas.'
CTV says she'll play a children's author with anger issues who enlists the help of a life coach.
Butt moves behind the camera as executive producer and writer.
The pilot for `Hiccups' starts shooting in Vancouver later this month.
