Initially Patricia Kalember commuted from New York, where her family is based, to LA to film the series. However, after three seasons the traveling became too stressful. She asked to be taken out of six shows a year, so she could handle the commute better. See more »
A brilliant series about four very different sisters and their relationships - often shadowed by the "Child Within" flashbacks of their childhood relationships. The Cast Summary should have started out with the LEADING ROLES: Sela Ward as 'Teddy'; Swoosie Kurtz as 'Alex'; Patricia Kalember as 'Georgie'; and Julianne Phillips as 'Frankie'. Their mother, daughters, husbands and lovers added to a brilliant cast of regulars and cameos. The intricate writing of difficult situations and the childhood reflections, make this more than entertainment, but a sensitive way of understanding and loving every one of these characters. Even the philandering father, who wanted a Son so bad he named all of his daughters with male nicknames - tho deceased in the timeframe of the series - carries an important and forgivable role.
