IFC Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'SisterS' Created by and Starring Sarah Goldberg and Susan Stanley

IFC has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series SisterS created by and starring Sarah Goldberg and Susan Stanley.

The 6-episode first season will debut on Wednesday, May 17 at 11/10c. New episodes will air weekly on IFC, while the entire season will be available to stream on Sundance Now and AMC+ the day of the series premiere.

In Toronto, Canada, Sare's (Goldberg) mother dies. In the aftermath of her death, she discovers that her father was not her actual father, he was in fact, an Irish busker her mother met while backpacking some thirty years ago. She decides to travel to Ireland to track him down, only to discover she has a half-sister. Meanwhile in Dublin, Suze's (Stanley) life is unraveling - she's lost her partner, her flat, her job... and not to mention - her dignity. On her 37th birthday, her life takes an unexpected turn, when her Canadian half-sister shows up. Sare convinces a reluctant Suze to embark on a road trip across Ireland to find their alcoholic father. Confined by the four walls of a crumbling ice cream van, it's a baptism of fire for these sisters. They forge an unbreakable bond as they discover sometimes it's the family you choose that can carry you through.

The cast also features Harki Bhambra, Liam Carney, Frank Laverty, Donal Logue, Rory Nolan, Darragh Shannon, Pat Shortt and Sophie Thompson.

Goldberg and Stanley executive produce with Angela Squire, Richard Cook, Christina Jennings, Scott Garvie, Kira Carstensen, Melanie Donkers, Justin Healy, Ruth Coady and director Declan Lowney. Peer Pressure, Shaftesbury, Mermade and Gaze Pictures produce.
