Last week, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jann Arden released “Mother Mine”, the first original song from CTV’s original comedy series “JANN”, in which she plays a fictionalized, self-deprecating version of herself. You can stream/purchase the song here.
In Episode 4 of “JANN” titled “Major Party Foul,” which aired last night (April 10) on CTV, Jann (Jann Arden) learns her sister Max (Zoie Palmer) is planning a 75th birthday party for their mom Nora (Deborah Grover) and insists on taking over the party planning. She even blackmails an old friend into performing at the party – guest star Rick Mercer. The party goes well until conflicts between Jann and Max come to a head, nearly ruining the night and deeply upsetting Nora. The sisters come together to set things right and salvage their mother’s celebration by performing “Mother Mine.” The episode is available on demand on CTV.ca and the CTV app, as well as on Crave.
Jann Arden explains:
“Having the opportunity to write and sing this song with Zoie Palmer, my onscreen sister, really made this a spectacular experience. It brought so much realism and heart to the entire episode. Losing a loved one to Dementia is a long, hard, unknowable road. This song is a salute to mom’s everywhere.”
CTV’s critically acclaimed series JANN airs at a special day and time next Thursday, April 18 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca and the CTV app. A second original track will be featured in the season finale of JANN airing Wednesday, April 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca and the CTV app.
