Jason Priestley (Call Me Fitz) and Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary) are part of the package! The celebrated Canadian actors have been tapped to guest star in the City original series Package Deal when Season 2 premieres this fall. With three decades of experience as an actor, writer, producer, and soon-to-be author (Jason Priestley: A Memoir), Priestley joins the cast as Storm Chambers, a slick, overly confident, name-dropping TV weatherman – and Ryan’s (Jay Malone) hero. A former menswear-salesman-turned-local-celebrity-meteorologist, Storm now sells what he considers “the promise of a better tomorrow.”
Tapping, a multiple-award-winning actress, producer, and director, is set to play Danny’s (Randal Edwards) boss, Jillian Sharpe. Calm, cool, collected, and deadly with her words, Jillian plays favourites when it suits her and has no patience for “suck ups.” Outside of the office, she’s left a trail of ex-husbands in her wake and owns a Shih Tzu she can’t house train.
Currently in production on Season 2, Package Deal centers around three overly-close brothers – Danny, Sheldon (Harland Williams), and Ryan – and the woman – Kim (Julia Voth) – who comes between them. Jill Morrison, who plays Kim’s sassy friend and co-worker Nikki, has also been promoted to a series regular this season.
