CTV Original Comedy JANN to Exclusively Stream in The U.S. on Hulu

− Premium streaming service to become U.S. home to Seasons 1 and 2 of hit comedy from Project 10 Productions and SEVEN24 Films -

− Co-created by series star Jann Arden, with Leah Gauthier and Jennica Harper, new episodes of Season 2 of JANN continue Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV -

− The critically acclaimed series was the most-watched new Canadian comedy series of the 2018-19 broadcast season −

"JANN blew everyone out of the water, establishing Jann Arden as a comic force on television." - TV, eh?

"JANN is the real deal: a funny, biting satire about the entertainment industry that isn't afraid to make fun of its star." - NOW Magazine

"Arden aces it. She is fearless, a born comedienne, as in on the joke as a Second City veteran." - Bill Brioux

"Jann Arden's narcissistic alter ego shines in CTV's JANN... Arden, with her sheer force of personality, breezy blunt speak and take-no-prisoners delivery, manages to showcase remarkable comic chops." - Toronto Star

TORONTO (October 21, 2020) - CTV, Project 10 Productions, and SEVEN24 Films announced today that hit CTV Original comedy JANN has been acquired by streaming platform Hulu. In a deal executed by Project 10 Productions and SEVEN24 Films, Hulu secures exclusive U.S. rights for the first two seasons of the Canadian Screen Award-nominated series. The half-hour comedy, which was the most-watched new Canadian comedy series of the 2018/19 season, was co-developed by Bell Media and Project 10 Productions and is produced by Project 10 Productions and SEVEN24 Films in association with CTV. The first season, consisting of six episodes, and the eight episode second season of JANN will stream in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu early next year.

"Jann has done such an incredible job bringing this character to life, and the series is enjoyed by viewers across Canada," said Randy Lennox, President, Bell Media. "Along with our partners at Project 10 Productions and SEVEN24 Films, we're absolutely thrilled to introduce JANN, and the hilarious and heartwarming world they've created, to U.S. audiences through this sale to Hulu."

"JANN is quickly becoming an iconic comedy sensation in Canada, and launching on Hulu is the first step in sharing this series with the rest of the world," said Andrew Barnsley of Project 10 Productions and Jordy Randall of SEVEN24 Films in a shared statement.

"I cannot even begin to express my excitement and sincere gratitude to be partnered with the incredible people at Hulu," said Jann Arden, co-creator, star, and executive producer. "We look forward to having JANN join their lineup of world class programming and we can't wait to launch south of the border."

JANN is created by multi-platinum award-winning Canadian singer, songwriter, broadcaster, and author Jann Arden, who is also an Executive Producer alongside co-creators Leah Gauthier and Jennica Harper, who also serves as Showrunner. In JANN, Arden plays a fictionalized, self-deprecating version of herself: a singer songwriter of a "certain age" in severe denial of the harsh reality that her former music career is slowly (okay rapidly) fading away. But it's not just Jann's career that's on life support - she's newly single (don't remind her), her sister may disown her, and her mother may be showing early signs of memory loss. Jann's personal life is in shambles and she's convinced that the cure-all is to enlist a new manager to help rebrand her image. Jann is at the crossroads between who she was and who she wants to be. Can Jann stage a comeback, reclaim fame... and be there for the people who love her?

Starring alongside Arden in JANN are Zoie Palmer (PURE, DARK MATTER) as Jann's sister Max; Deborah Grover (ANNE WITH AN "E") as Jann's mom Nora; Patrick Gilmore (TRAVELERS; YOU, ME, HER) as Jann's brother-in-law Dave; Elena Juatco (OPEN HEART, SCHITT'S CREEK) as Jann's new manager Cale; Jason Blicker (F/X: THE SERIES, STATE OF GRACE) as Jann's long-time manager Todd; Sharon Taylor (BAD BLOOD) as Jann's ex-girlfriend Cynthia; Alexa Rose Steele (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION) as Jann's eldest niece Charley; Ceilidh MacDonald as Jann's niece Sammie; and Keaira Pliva (TIN STAR) as Jann's niece Frankie.

Guest stars in the inaugural season of JANN include Canadian indie pop singer-songwriter and guitarist Leslie Feist, Canadian singer and multi-instrumentalist Kiesza, and TV personality Rick Mercer. Guest stars for Season 2 include singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan as herself; Canadian singer-songwriter k.d. lang as herself; actress Elisha Cuthbert (THE RANCH, HAPPY ENDINGS); singer, host, and actress Keshia Chanté (SOUL, PRIVATE EYES); and more.

Season 2 of JANN airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, with episodes from both seasons streaming on CTV.ca, the CTV app, and Crave.

JANN is executive produced by Andrew Barnsley and Ben Murray for Project 10 Productions, Tom Cox and Jordy Randall for SEVEN24 Films, and Randy Lennox for Bell Media. Jann Arden, Leah Gauthier, and Jennica Harper created the series and also serve as Executive Producers with Jennica Harper showrunning. For Bell Media, Chris Kelley is Production Executive; Sarah Fowlie is Director, Comedy Original Programming; Corrie Coe is Senior Vice-President, Original Programming. Pat DiVittorio is Vice-President, Programming, CTV and Specialty. Mike Cosentino is President, Content and Programming, Bell Media. Randy Lennox is President, Bell Media.
