From a media release:
AUNTIE JILLIAN is coming to CTV. Featuring YouTube ™ and social media personality Jillian Danford (a.k.a. “Auntie Jillian”), her husband Warren, and adult children Myles and Milan, AUNTIE JILLIAN brings Canada’s self-proclaimed first Black family reality show to viewers across the country Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning July 25 on CTV and everywhere CTV content can be found. The six-episode season, airing over three weeks on CTV, centres on the Danford family in their Ajax, Ont. home as Jillian and Warren do their best to raise, entertain, and inspire their millennial and Gen Z kids. It’s not always pretty. It’s not always in control. But it’s always funny.
When cultures collide, hilarity often ensues and in AUNTIE JILLIAN, the Danford family and their extended fun-loving cast of friends encounter clashes and laugh-out-loud moments, keeping audiences excited to see what fun the family will encounter in each episode. Jillian is originally from Trinidad and Warren from Jamaica, and the two do their best to mold, entertain, and inspire their kids by nurturing and celebrating their Caribbean roots and embracing Canadian culture. From their first camping trip, to a Generation X vs. millennial cook-off, and Warren’s first time going for a new chest hair removal technique, AUNTIE JILLIAN keeps viewers wondering what hysterical shenanigans this family will encounter next.
