US to adapt TEN’s Sisters

Aussie drama series Sisters is getting a US adaptation from FOX.

The series was created by Jonathan Gavin and Imogen Banks and has had one season on TEN in 2017, produced by Endemol Shine Australia.

FOX has given the project a ‘put pilot’ commitment meaning if it does not proceed it comes with heavy financial penalties.

The US version will be written by Annie Weisman (Desperate Housewives, The Path, I Feel Bad), a co-executive producer along with Jason Katims, and Imogen Banks, produced by Universal TV and Endemol Shine North America and is a co–production with FOX.

The series centres on only child Julia Bechly, who finds her life turned upside down when her father is forced to reveal that over the course of his pioneering career as a fertility doctor, he used his own sperm to conceive dozens of children.

In the U.S., a retired Indiana fertility doctor made headlines in 2016 when he was sued for using his own sperm around 50 times on unwitting female patients he was treating. He avoided jail time but recently surrendered his medical license.

TEN is still to detail any future for the local series which starred Maria Angelico.
