Jessi Cruickshank’s Facebook Watch series “New Mom, Who Dis?” is returning for a second season, and she’ll be joined by a very special guest for the debut episode: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“Nothing is off the table as Cruickshank and the PM sit down for a funny and honest discussion about family life, raising kids, and the impact his policies have on families and children,” reads the announcement from Kin Community Canada, which produces the show, revealing that the interview “captures the Prime Minister like never seen before — sharing light-hearted family stories but also answering hard-hitting policy questions and taking real questions from real kids.”
Produced by and starring Cruickshank (who’s hosted such CBC series as “The Goods” and “Canada’s Smartest Person”), the inaugural season of “New Mom, Who Dis?” became the No. 1 Canadian series on Facebook Watch.
The second season will follow the Canadian entertainment personality, who is also the mother of twin boys, as she navigates the world of motherhood, along with a look at some of the more serious topics affecting Canadian parents through exclusive interviews, roundtables, Q&As and celebrity guests.
