Is the world ready for more Jann? When it comes to legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden, the answer to that question is always “yes!” In CTV’s new, original, six-part comedy series JANN, Arden plays a fictionalized, self-deprecating version of herself: basically a singer songwriter who is in severe denial of the harsh reality that her former music career is fading away. The series premieres on CTV on Wednesday, March 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, but for those who can’t wait, the first episode is now available to stream on CTV.ca and Crave.
The comedy finds Jann at the crossroads of who she was and who she wants to be. To help figure things out, she’ll be joined by a talented cast that includes Zoie Palmer (Dark Matter, Lost Girl), Deborah Grover (Anne with an E), Patrick Gilmore (Travelers), Elena Juatco (Open Heart), Jason Blicker (F/X: The Series), Sharon Taylor (Bad Blood), Alexa Rose Steele (Degrassi: The Next Generation), Ceilidh MacDonald, Keaira Pliva (Tin Star) and Donna Godlonton. “We have a dream cast and are very aware of how lucky we are,” JANN showrunner Jennica Harper told The TV Junkies.
Harper shared even more about what we can expect from this family that may be “needing more from her than she’s able to give.” Browse through the photo gallery below to see more comments from Harper and learn all about these characters!
