"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
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 »
Sisters is a wonderful show that has a lot of character. I remember watching the show when it was first aired, but didn't remember most of the things about the show until I watched it again on Soapnet. Patricia Kalember (Georgie) was wonderful and really played the part well, even when in the last season she was pregnant. They hid the pregnancy well, but if you are a critic like I am, you could tell that she was with child. Sela Ward (Teddy)was also wonderful and comical, especially when she shot up her sister's wedding. Swoozie Kurtz (Alex) is really comical, yet sophisticated in this series. Julianne Phillips (Frankie) is good, but not as heartfelt as the others. Sheila Kelley (Charlie #2) is very warm and compassionate for her character, and really makes the profession of a doctor stand out. I will always like this series because of the bond between sisters, and for it's warmth on television.
