Canada’s first and only public television festival, the Canadian International Television Festival (CITF), presented by Bell Media and screening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, announced their next programming event. Kim Cattrall and Don McKellar along with writer Bob Martin will be on hand Saturday, November 16 at 4:00 p.m. to discuss their new series, Sensitive Skin.

Don McKellar and Bob Martin, whose previous television projects together include Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays and Slings and Arrows, collaborate with Kim Cattrall on Sensitive Skin. The half-hour comedy series, based on the U.K. series of the same name is the story of Davina (Kim Cattrall), a woman of a certain age and her long-time husband Al (Don McKellar), who have sold their comfortable family home and moved downtown to an ultra-modern condo, in a transitional neighbourhood, in a conscious effort to change their lives, keep relevant, and begin again. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens. Sensitive Skin is produced by Toronto-based Rhombus Media in association with The Movie Network and Movie Central and is slated to air on The Movie Network and Movie Central in 2014.

As previously announced, advance tickets for the CITF will be made available at no cost (except for a small handling charge) in early November at the TIFF Bell Lightbox box office, online at or by telephone at (416) 599-8433. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door on the day of an event.
