TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Gossip, advice and deep conditioning? Hair care
has never been more entertaining.... 'da Kink in my Hair is back for another
star-studded season on Global.
Beginning on Thursday, February 12 - 9:30pm ET/PT, the 2008 Gemini
award-winning series returns with 13 half-hour episodes.
"'da Kink in my Hair is a true gem amongst our line-up of Original
Programming," said Christine Shipton, SVP of Drama and Factual Content,
Canwest Broadcasting. "With its authentic humour and talented cast, this
series has struck a chord with our audiences and we're excited to offer up a
second helping of Canada's favourite home-grown comedy."
The story continues as new and old characters congregate at Letty's
salon, to share laughs and joys, exchange dreams while washing away their
worries. This season, Novelette (Ordena Stephens-Thompson) tries to untangle
the webs in her personal life while taking care of her family and running her
busy salon. After a stint at a competing shop, her sister Joy (trey anthony)
returns and tries to find her own place within the salon while Starr (Ngozi
Paul) continues to surprise her co-workers with her naivety and goody
two-shoes attitude. There is also a new man in town, Malik (Eli Goree), the
sexy and rugged grandson of Letty's mentor, Pops (Ardon Bess). Now a year
older, Letty's son Dre (introducing Daniel J. Gordon, "Nurse Fighter Boy") has
new friends, loves and more growing pains.
Featuring special guest appearances from notable talent including
award-winning actress Vivica A. Fox, WWE alumnus Trish Stratus, comedians
Shaun Majumder and Jessica Holmes, soulful songstress Kreesha Turner and
Juno-nominee, Divine Brown.
