SOAPNET'S ORIGINAL SERIES "BEING ERICA" RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26 AT 11:00 PM ET/PT

SOAPnet's critically acclaimed series "Being Erica," which brought over half-a-million new viewers to SOAPnet its first season and reached 3 million viewers in Season Two, returns for a third season on Wednesday, January 26, 2011. A total of 13 one-hour scripted episodes will air on Wednesdays at 11:00 p.m., ET/PT. The series, produced by Temple Street Productions in association with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, follows the life of funny, endearing, candid and sexy thirty-something Erica Strange who has the ability to go back in time to sort out her past regrets.

With the help of mysterious therapist Dr. Tom, Erica follows a time-travel therapy where she is able to relive a past regret each week in order to come back and make a positive change in her present. At the end of Season Two, Erica is stripped of everything -- her job, her boyfriend and her life are all left in shambles. However, unlike the Erica we first met back in Season One, this Erica is able to deal with these setbacks and turn them into positives. When Erica ends up standing in a strange hallway surrounded by different doors, she tells Dr. Tom that she's ready to face whatever awaits her on the other side. When she picks a door, what will she find behind it?

Transformation is the big theme for Season Three, and we will see Erica emerge as a more confident woman who is on the path to forging a new identity. The third season stars Erin Karpluk (Erica Strange) and Michael Riley (Dr. Tom). The one-hour series, created by Emmy Award-winning writer Jana Sinyor, is executive-produced by Sinyor, Aaron Martin, Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier. "Being Erica" is distributed by BBC Worldwide.
