CBC has greenlit a new 10-episode drama series, NEW ADDRESS. An adaptation of the hit Quebec series, Nouvelle Adresse, NEW ADDRESS is set to begin production in Montreal in summer 2015. The series is slated to air on CBC in fall 2015 – additional details will be announced in the coming months.
NEW ADDRESS revolves around the Lawsons, a large Montreal family whose lives are always bursting at the seams. When Natalie Lawson, a journalist and single mother is in her early forties, learns she’s dying of cancer, she must help her three teenaged children get ready for the future, while trying her best to live in the now. To do all this she leans on her two brothers, her sister and her parents, a close-knit, charmingly imperfect clan who each have their own unpredictable personal and professional hills to climb. NEW ADDRESS is a funny, honest, heartfelt series about a regular family whose world turns upside down overnight. Faced with the uncertainty of life, each Lawson does their best to embrace the absurdity of the journey, while confronting the drama that comes with all of their choices big and small. Natalie’s diagnosis is a life-changer for everyone she loves.
“We’re excited to be working with Sphère Média Plus to bring this powerful drama series to new audiences,” said Sally Catto, general manager of programming, CBC English Television. “Through a mix of drama and humour, NEW ADDRESS explores the many ups and downs of life in a touching, relatable way, and we know it’s going to resonate with Canadians across the country.”
