"Sisters" follows the lives and loves of four close, but very different, sisters of the Reed family living in Winnetka, Illinois. Alex, the oldest, is a wealthy, slightly snobish, WASP wife of a plastic surgeron. Teddy, is a free-spirited, artist/drifter seeking to find her place in life. Georgie, is a typical suburban housewife trying to keep the family together. Frankie, the youngest, is an overacheiving, businesswoman trying to make it big in the world. Written by
Sela Ward was pregnant in real-life during the fourth season. Producers chose to hide her pregnancy, rather than write it into the storyline. Ward never had to take time off from the show, as she subsequently gave birth shortly after the filming of season four was completed. See more »
A very well done television series, but full of excesses!
The series was about the lives and the friendship among four sisters. Patricia Kalember (thirtysomething) "Georgie" was the backbone of the family and a home maker. Swoosie Kurtz, (Liar Liar ) "Alex", was a typical stereotype of a doctor's wife. Sela Ward (Runaway Bride) "Teddy" had more problems than the other sisters. Everything happened to her. Julianne Phillips (Allie & Me) "Frankie" was a business person climbing the career ladder. The series was interesting because when they recollected the past, there were scenes made with kids that played them as children. That going back to the past and back to the present gave a lot of physiological impact to the characters. That was a nice touch! I started watching the series because I have three sisters. I could identify with the characters. Then the show turned into a typical American soup-opera where everything happened to one character. They get married, divorced, blinded and cured, crippled, raped etc., and we decided that we did not like the series any more and stopped watching it. Some now famous actors played in the series such as: George Clooney (ER) "Detective James Falconer"; Ashley Judd ( Ruby in Paradise) "Reed Halsey Philby" was the rich kid who was sent to boarding school in Europe. But overall it was a very well done television series.
