Enlightened on One

10:30pm Sunday, March 25 on TV One

Beginning tonight on TV ONE, new series Enlightened is a unique blend of comedy and drama. Featuring an all-star cast, Enlightened is an exciting, off-beat series that navigates the path of who you want to be and who you really are.

Laura Dern (Jurassic Park) stars as Amy Jellicoe, an ambitious executive at a global conglomerate. Her self-destructive choices, both at home and at work, have resulted in a very public, humiliating, nervous breakdown.

After an extended stay at a treatment centre, Amy returns to her fractured life, determined to lead a more enlightened existence. But her newfound noble intentions only ratchet up the drama, wreaking unexpected havoc on those around her.

Also starring Luke Wilson (The Family Stone) as Amy’s drug-addicted ex-husband, and Diane Ladd (Nights in Rodanthe), Dern’s real-life mother, as Amy’s disapproving mother Helen.

“This engaging, uncomfortable series is not like anything you’ve seen before” – NY Times

“Dern is letter-perfect as Enlightened’s dented Joan of Arc.” – National TV Reviews & News
