From a media release:
The Movie Network and Movie Central announced today that they have ordered a second season of the premium original series, SENSITIVE SKIN. The series is led by Golden Globe® Award winner and Emmy® Award nominee Kim Cattrall, returning as executive producer and star, joined by Genie and Tony Award® winner Don McKellar (The Grand Seduction), who resumes his role as director and executive producer, while multiple Gemini Award winner and Tony Award® winner Bob Martin (MICHAEL: TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS) returns as head writer and executive producer. The new season stars Cattrall, and goes into production in Toronto in the spring of 2015.
“SENSITIVE SKIN had the highest rated premiere of all time on HBO Canada for an original production, proving that well promoted, bold Canadian programming resonates with our Pay TV audience,” said Maria Hale, Vice President, Head of Content Distribution & Pay TV, Corus Entertainment. “With an impressive roster of homegrown and world renowned creative talent including Kim Cattrall, Don McKellar, Bob Martin and the team at Rhombus Media, we are delighted to begin production on Season 2.”
In a Canadian broadcast first, HBO Canada marathon-launched the series by making the entire six-episode first season available to subscribers online and on demand following its broadcast premiere.
