Sharon Horgan’s new Apple TV+ series Bad Sisters is a chaotic case study of sisterhood – and it’s set to hit our screens this summer.
But Horgan is nothing if not prodigious with her small screen output. Hot on the heels of the announcement that Horgan will star in Best Interests, the BBC’s emotional new drama exploring disability rights, we now have a first look at Bad Sisters, Horgan’s upcoming dark comedy for Apple TV+ – and it looks like an absolute riot.
Not only is Horgan co-writing and executive producing the series with her company Merman Productions, but she’s also taking a starring role as part of the Garvey gaggle. The other sisters are played by some seriously talented actors, too, including Anne-Marie Duff (Suffragette, The Salisbury Poisonings), Eva Birthistle (Brooklyn, The Last Kingdom), Sarah Greene (Frank Of Ireland, Dublin Murders) and Eve Hewson (Behind Her Eyes, The Luminaries).
There’s an impressive supporting cast list, too, including Claes Bang (Dracula, The Northman), Brian Gleeson (Frank Of Ireland, Peaky Blinders), Daryl McCormack (Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, Peaky Blinders), Assaad Bouab (Call My Agent, The Pursuit Of Love) and newcomer Saise Quinn (Monster).
The project, which is adapted from the Belgian series Clan, is the first to come from Horgan’s first-look deal with Apple, which she signed in 2019.
Apple TV+ will debut the first two episodes of Bad Sisters on 19 August 2022, followed by one new episode every Friday through 14 October 2022.
