To beef up the series' comedic quotient, Lynch has tapped Emmy-winning comedy writer Jay Kogen (Frasier) to run it. The Troop, filming in Vancouver for a fall premiere, follows Jake (Nick Purcell), a typical teenager struggling through adolescence who dreams of creating his own comic book. When his school counselor (John Marshall Jones) recruits him into the Troop -- a secret society that protects the world from the monsters that walk among us -- Jake suddenly discovers a whole new existence."
