Production begins on film comedy about fictional former Maple Leaf

The team and the NHL have given permission for their logos to be used in a movie called “Breakfast With Scot.” The producers call it “a thoughtful comedy,” about a gay ex-Leaf and his partner, the team’s lawyer, whose lifestyle and relationship are turned upside down when they become the guardians of “a budding queen of an 11-year-old boy.”

The movie stars Tom Cavanagh of “Ed” and “Scrubs,” and Ben Shenkman of “Just Like Heaven” and “Angels In America” star along with Noah Bernett of “Gothica.”
