Based on the original British series Absolutely Fabulous that starred Joanna Lumley, Sensitive Skin costars Golden Globe® Award-winner and Emmy® Award-nominee Kim Cattrall and Genie and Tony Award®-winner Don McKellar as the show’s lead characters. McKellar also directed the first 6-episode season. It is the story of Davina (Cattrall), a woman of a certain age and her long-time husband Al (McKellar), who have sold their comfortable family home and moved downtown to an ultra-modern condo, in a transitional neighbourhood, in a conscious effort to change their lives, keep relevant, and begin again. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens.
