The shows include “Serena,” which is about a woman who makes a series of startling confessions to a priest. It stars Golden Globe-winning actress Jennifer Garner, and was written and directed by WIGS co-founder Rodrigo Garcia (“In Treatment”).
The other four series are “Dakota” (starring Jena Malone), “Lauren” (starring Troian Bellisario and Jennifer Beals), “Susanna” (starring Anna Paquin and Maggie Grace), and “Ruth & Erica” (starring Maura Tierney).
They will join “Blue,” a series starring Julia Stiles which arrived on CTV Extend last July.
All are currently available to stream on CTV Extend’s online destination at CTV.ca, as well as the CTV Go app.
Launched during YouTube’s first programming initiative a few years ago, WIGS produces female-focused original drama series anchored by Hollywood casts. The shows are all short form, though have been repackaged into longer formats when distributed on Hulu and on TV in international markets.
CTV Extend, which was launched by CTV last year, also offers full-length episodes of programming from the broadcaster.
