Lionsgate’s Florida Girls Heads to Canada


Canada’s Super Channel has acquired the ten-episode half-hour scripted comedy Florida Girls from Lionsgate Television.

The series will make its Canadian broadcast premiere on Sunday, January 19, at 9:00 p.m. on SC Fuse. Each episode will also be available on Super Channel On Demand the day following its weekly linear broadcast.

The original series, inspired by the life of creator and star Laura Chinn (The Mick) follows four girls living in Clearwater, Florida, who confront their stagnant lives when their only ambitious friend moves away to follow her dreams. Bound by their friendship, they attempt to navigate life’s curveballs while living below the poverty line.

Fronted by an all-female cast, the series also stars Melanie Field (Heathers, Shrill), Patty Guggenheim (Splitting Up Together, LA to Vegas) and Laci Mosley (The Wedding Year).

The series premiered last summer on Pop TV in the U.S. to critical acclaim and was recently renewed for a second season.

Florida Girls is produced by Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Jax Media, and is executive produced by Chinn, Jared Miller, Tony Hernandez, Lilly Burns and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Josh Lieberman and Oly Obst.
