Kim Cattrall takes 'Producing' role

Joins voice cast of Canadian E! show

TORONTO -- Kim Cattrall has joined the voice cast for the Canadian primetime animated sitcom "Producing Parker," which is set to bow on Canada's E! network in spring 2009.

Cattrall will play "Dee," a self-absorbed, high-maintenance host of "The Dee Show," a daytime talk show that sells viewers on the myth of having it all.

Other lead voices include Kristen Booth as Parker Kovak, Aaron Abrams as the Dee Show's resident copywriter and Peter Keleghan as the charismatic station owner.

E! has ordered 13 half-hours of the animated comedy from co-producers Breakthrough Animation and Philippine Animation Studio.

The series, which sends up the daytime talk show genre, was created by Laura Kosterski and Breakthrough's Kevin Gillis and Carolyn Newman.
