hit series to Canadians," said Sandy Perkins, Super Channel,

Linney plays Cathy Jamison, a reserved, stifled, Minneapolis
schoolteacher who finds out she has cancer and decides, from that moment
on, it's time to grab life by the balls. She changes everything,
including her patience with her immature husband (played by four-time
Emmy Nominee Oliver Platt),
her bratty son and a troubled student (played by Academy Award Nominee Gabourey
Sidibe), taking on what time she has left without excuses.
Directed by the Academy Award winning filmmaker Bill
Condon, the series finds comedy and hope in hard-to-find places and
unabashedly presents the struggle and triumphs in the new life of a
woman who has just realized that growing old is a privilege and all she
has left is time.
Liam Neeson and Cynthia
Nixon will guest-star on the series.
Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET
