Kim Cattrall isn't Samantha Jones from "Sex And The City" anymore.
That's right! She has her own series on HBO Canada, titled "Sensitive Skin," which premieres on Sunday, July 20. The bittersweet half-hour series is the story of Davina (Cattrall), a woman of a certain age, and her long-time husband Al (Don McKellar) attempting to change their lives. The couple have sold their comfortable family home and moved downtown to an ultra-modern condo in a conscious effort to keep relevant and begin again. Unfortunately for the couple, that’s exactly what happens.
The series is executive-produced by Cattrall and McKellar, who directs all six episodes. "Sensitive Skin" was shot in Toronto and is adapted from the acclaimed BBC Two program of the same name, which starred Joanna Lumley of "Absolutely Fabulous" fame.
But that's not all! In a Canadian broadcast first, HBO Canada will make the entire first season of the new premium original series available exclusively to subscribers online and on demand following its broadcast debut. Immediately following the premiere at 8:30 pm ET/MT, subscribers can watch all six half-hour episodes anytime, anywhere, on TMN GO, Shaw Go Movie Central app, Bell TV app, Telus Optik on the go, and via on demand platforms across Canada.
"Sensitive Skin" continues to air in its regular broadcast timeslot, Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada until its finale on Sunday, August 24.
