(Toronto – October 31, 2008) Catch the hilarious season premiere of the half-hour sitcom “Rita Rocks” Tuesday, November 4 on Citytv.

Rita Clements is an overworked and underappreciated mom who finds herself at a hilarious crossroads while trying to balance her love-life, career and high-mantenance family. Between raising her energetic nine year-old, disciplining her defiant teenage daughter and finding time to keep the romance alive with her husband, Rita is at her wits end. To top it all off, her professional life isn’t faring much better recently being overlooked over for a hefty promotion. Determined to get her groove back, Rita turns to…the garage? In an attempt to pick herself up, Rita dusts off her old guitar before she knows it, she’s fronting a garage band with her nosy mail carrier Patty and unemployed neighbour Owen.
