Kim Cattrall returning to HBO
Cattrall will play the role of a middle-aged wife and mother who, according to the character description, "rediscovers her sexuality and begins to question her place in the world." The American adaptation of Sensitive Skin is set in New York. A middle-aged New Yorker exploring her sexuality--why does that sound familiar? The series is Cattrall's second post-SATC project for HBO; she produced and starred in the 2005 documentary Kim Cattrall: Sexual Intelligence.
The creative forces behind the original British series are also involved in the American version. Writer-director Hugo Blick joins Cattrall as executive producer, along with Henry Normal, whose production company brought us the original Sensitive Skin. The writing for the series should be top-notch as well. Emmy-winners Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green, formerly of The Sopranos, are part of the show's writing and producing teams.
Should Kim Cattrall give the sexy programming a rest, or is this role right up her alley?
