Two weeks into its third season, Republic of Doyle is one of Canada’s biggest shows.  The episodes of both brought in audiences well over a million viewers and shows no sign of slowing down.

So who is behind the blockbuster show?  Well, that would be the one and only Allan Hawco, who I recently got a chance to sit down with and chat about the show’s success, the big guest stars and why, no matter what, he always seems to have his shirt off.

Check out the video above.

Republic of Doyle airs Wednesdays on CBC.
