Last week Martinvon Ruden, Executive Vice President and General
Manager of WE: Women's Entertainment announced the cable network's entry intothe animation arena with the addition of Committed to its Sundaynight lineup beginning October 6th.
Based on MichaelFry's popular comic strip of the same name, Committed explores theintricacies of one of the most fascinating organisms on the planet...the modernAmerican family. Corus Entertainment's Nelvana, the leading distributor ofanimated children's and family entertainment, produces the thirteen-episodeseries. For the length of the run, WE will air two half-hour episodes of theseries back-to-back, from 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM (ET). Catherine O'Hara (Bestin Show) is the voice of the mom, Eugene Levy (American Pie)is the voice of the husband, plus Andrea Martin (My Big Fat Greek Wedding)and Dave Foley (Newsradio) also lend their voice talents to theseries.
"We thinkour viewers will be able to relate to COMMITTED since many of the funnysituations mirror the juggling act that many women perform in their dailylives," von Ruden said.
In Committed,Liz is the consummate working mother. She has a husband, three kids, a job and asacred vow to somehow find the time to get out the "Butt Burner" shegot last Christmas. With her loving (and sometimes exasperating) family besideher, behind her and under her Liz is just trying to keep her head above water.When you're "committed" to keeping a modern family afloat it's a fulltime job...plus overtime...unpaid.
