TORONTO (May 19, 2015) – The Movie Network and Movie Central announced today that the second season of their Canadian Screen Award-winning original series SENSITIVE SKIN is currently in production in Toronto for six weeks. The new six-episode season focuses on Davina, played by series star and executive producer Kim Cattrall (SEX AND THE CITY), as she enters a transitional phase in her life that uproots her from the sterile streets of Toronto to a new life in the picturesque Toronto Islands. Genie and Tony Award® winner Don McKellar (The Grand Seduction) resumes his role as director and executive producer, while multiple Gemini Award winner and Tony Award® winner Bob Martin (MICHAEL: TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS) returns as executive producer. Season 2 is slated to premiere in 2016. Season 1 of SENSITIVE SKIN was picked up by Sky Arts in the U.K. and concluded its critically acclaimed broadcast run earlier this month.
“We are thrilled to be back for Season 2 of SENSITIVE SKIN, continuing the story of Davina Jackson,” said star and executive producer Kim Cattrall. “This upcoming season finds Davina attempting to re-engage with reality, accompanied by many surprising twists and challenges along the way. Head’s up Toronto – we’ll be in the neighbourhood this spring/summer.”
Also returning for Season 2 are: Nicolas Wright (White House Down) as Davina’s neurotic son Orlando; Gemini Award-winner Colm Feore (GOTHAM) as Davina’s brother-in-law Roger; Tony Award winner Joanna Gleason (Last Vegas) as her conservative older sister Veronica; Gemini Award-winner Mary Walsh (THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES) as Sarah Thorn, a well-known radio personality; and Gemini Award-winner Clé Bennett (FLASHPOINT) as Theodore.
