MUST-WATCH FOR THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21
CTV: Season 2 of CTV Original comedy JANN premieres Monday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV. Jann’s (Jann Arden) hilarious, attention-drawing antics continue as the second season picks up immediately following last season’s cliff-hanger finale. Jann cuts her Burning Woman Tour short to be there for the birth of her sister Max (Zoie Palmer, DARK MATTER) and brother-in-law Dave’s (Patrick Gilmore, TRAVELERS) baby, and is surprised when nobody is happy to see her. She becomes determined to patch things up with her family and her on-again, off-again girlfriend, Cynthia (Sharon Taylor, BAD BLOOD). Meanwhile, a musical rival (guest star Sarah McLachlan) tracks Jann down, and she’s pissed.

Then, for dessert, Gianfrancesco serves up an egg tart with fresh vanilla bean.

When she meets Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso, LA’S FINEST), she thinks she’s found Mr. Right and eagerly accepts the Wall Street worker’s marriage proposal after a whirlwind romance. However, when Watson’s aristocratic parents (Angela Bassett, Black Panther; Brian Stokes Mitchell, MR. ROBOT.) meet Jason’s postal-worker mother (Loretta Devine, GREY’S ANATOMY) at their estate in Martha’s Vineyard, the class division is very apparent, causing the couple to question if their union will survive despite their different backgrounds.
