Sophie is a Canadian television sitcom that aired on CBC from January 9, 2008 to March 23, 2009.

It stars Natalie Brown as Sophie Parker, an unmarried single mother and talent agent. The show is an English-language adaptation of Télévision de Radio-Canada's show Les Hauts et les bas de Sophie Paquin.

The show was created by Richard Blaimert and its executive producer is Jocelyn Deschênes, the same creative team behind the original series. It was the CBC's second attempt in as many years to create an English adaptation of a successful series from its French sister network, following the less successful Rumours.[1]

In February 2008, it was announced that the show had been bought by ABC Family, part of Disney-ABC Television Group in the United States. The network signed on for the first 13 episodes, as well as an option for the second season of the show.[2]

On March 27, 2009, the series was cancelled by CBC due to poor ratings.[3]

On February 5, 2008, it was announced that American broadcast rights to Sophie were purchased by ABC Family, which aired the series in 2009.[4] ABC Family marketed the series as "original programming", although earlier seasons had already aired in Canada. The show was pulled from the lineup early in its run due to poor ratings.

On March 7, 2008, it was announced that CBC ordered a second season of the show.[5] The second season started broadcasting on October 1, 2008 and ended on March 23, 2009.
