The Good Witch star Dani Kind, Juno Rinaldi and Jessalyn Wanlim have grabbed leading roles in Black-ish star Catherine Reitman's upcoming original comedy, Workin’ Moms.
The 13-episode series follows four young women in a judgmental mommies' group who form an unlikely friendship. Reitman, who is writing, directing and starring, plays a warm and grounded PR exec.
Los Angeles-based Reitman's acting credits include It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Friends With Benefits and Knocked Up. Kind plays a no-nonsense therapist, Rinaldi (The Killing) plays a "lovable mess" and Orphan Black star Wanlim is in the role of a cute, but timid mother.
The half-hour created by Reitman for the CBC is produced by Wolf & Rabbit Entertainment. Production in Toronto is set to start in August.Read More

"We can’t think of a better way to describe Juno Rinaldi’s superb performance as an “odd woman” in Age of Arousal, the first production of The Factory Theatre’s much-lauded “Naked Season” than to just quote you our review: “deep-seated melancholy, downtrodden stubbornness and organic oddity that encapsulates both perfectly time high comedy and slow-creeping sadness.” Outstanding Supporting Actress, indeed."
"Rinaldi and Amour-Ostroff, under towering hairdos, really steal the show with performances that border on clown – (These two are also the most moving when their stories turn dramatic.)"
"Among the three sisters, Juno Rinaldi is consistently the funniest and makes Alice’s gradual shift from flighty Victorian female to responsible New Woman believable."Read More
