TEN has released its first look at its upcoming new drama series Sisters.
The series from producer Imogen Banks (Offspring, Puberty Blues, Tangle) stars Maria Angelico, Lucy Durack & Antonia Prebble plus Barry Otto, Magda Szubanski, Catherine McClements Roy Billings.
It was announced for 2017 although it isn’t clear if it will still debut this year.
Suffering from a terminal illness, IVF pioneer Julius Bechly (Barry Otto) makes a horrifying confession from his deathbed. His award winning career as a fertility specialist was propped up by the use of his own sperm. As a secret donor, he is the unofficial father to potentially dozens of his patient’s children.
Julius’ one legitimate child, the well-intentioned but chaotic Julia (Maria Angelico), makes it her mission to set the record straight and compensate for her father’s scandalous admission.
Welcoming new siblings into her life with open arms, Julia discovers a sea of brothers, but only two sisters: troubled children’s television star, Roxy Karibas (Lucy Durack), and belligerent lawyer, Edie Flanagan (Antonia Prebble).
Thrown together by biology, Julia, Roxy and Edie’s lives suddenly collide. While Julia relishes the prospect of gaining new family, Roxy senses a fresh career opportunity, and Edie cannot see past the crime that has been committed.
From the producers of Offspring and Puberty Blues, Sisters features a superb all-star cast including Maria Angelico, Lucy Durack, Antonia Prebble, Barry Otto, Magda Szubanski, Roy Billing, Catherine McClements, Dan Spielman, Charlie Garber and Lindsay Farris.
Sisters follows the chaos and confusion that ensues when group of relative strangers, from different walks of life, are unexpectedly united by a genetic surprise, to become family.
