A second television adaptation, also on CBC, premiered in 2012. It stars Gordon Pinsent and Jill Hennessy. Two of Leacock stories in Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town were featured on the made for TV movie, created to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the publication of Leacock's classic work. The two of Leacock's twelve sketches were "The Marine Excursions of the Knights of Pythias" and "The Hostelry of Mr. Smith." The stories are a mix of fact and fiction; drawing on details of Leacock's own life and that of his literary creation.
