Forget about her role as Samantha in Sex and the City. Actress Kim Cattrall’s next big role will be on Breakthrough Animation’s hot new show Producing Partner. Slated for a spring 2009 debut on E! network in Canada, the adult animated series offers a satiric behind-the-scenes look at the workings of a daytime chat show.
Cattrall will provide the voice of Dee, the lead character’s self-absorbed, high-maintenance boss and host of The Dee Show, a daytime talk show that sells viewers the myth of having it all. Each episode of Producing Parker follows the adventures of Parker, the show’s overworked and underpaid TV producer, as she manages her boss’s delicate ego and shenanigans.
‘We’re very excited to have Kim Cattrall starring in this much-anticipated animated sitcom,’ said Kevin Gillis, Breakthrough Animation’s managing partner and exec producer. ‘Kim has developed an enormous following among female viewers and it is appropriate that she should play such an important role in the first primetime animated series designed for women.’
