IFC Picks Up Dramedy 'SisterS' Created by and Starring Sarah Goldberg and Susan Stanley

IFC has today acquired the stateside rights to the original international dramedy series SisterS created by and starring Sarah Goldberg and Susan Stanley. Production on the Irish-Canadian series is currently underway.

Two women (Goldberg, Stanley), born continents apart, in Canada and in Ireland, discover they are half-sisters and embark on a road trip to find their alcoholic father. 

Goldberg and Stanley will executive produce with director Declan Lowney. Peer Pressure, Shaftesbury, Mermade and Gaze Pictures will produce.

"We are thrilled to be making SisterS, a character-driven comedic drama about how the absence of a parent in childhood can affect life in your thirties, and the macabre humour that can come with trauma," said Goldberg and Stanley.

"SisterS made me want one," added Blake Callaway, General Manager, IFC. "The messy bonds of friendship and family are a perfect fit to IFC and Sundance Now's unique mix of slightly off comedies. Sarah and Susan have found so much humor among the wreckage of flawed, failed, and absent parenting. These siblings and their breakout creators are going to be just fine."
