The series from the makers of Offspring asks the questions “What makes you ‘you’? and what’s the difference between being related and being family?”
A contemporary, feel-good family drama from the makers of Offspring, Sisters asks the big questions: what makes you you; what is the difference between being related and being a family; and does it pay to have DNA tests before sleeping with someone? Exploring this
fertile terrain is a superb cast that includes Barry Otto, Catherine McClements, Lucy Durack, Maria Angelico, Antonia Prebble, Remy Hii, Dan Spielman, Charlie Garber, Roy Billing, Zindzi Okenyo and the fabulous Magda Szubanski.
There are a lot of the same genre on Ten. I am assuming they would like a 30-40 week commitment to Australian drama for the 8:30 Wednesday timeslot and must feel that Sisters-Offspring-Wrong Girl will deliver this. I don’t mind the premise of the show. It doesn’t sound too bad. But it would be nice to have perhaps another Police/Crime drama or something.
And think of all the crossovers they can have. The 3 sisters, after finding each other can be guests on the Breakfast bar. One of them can whip out the back & have a quickie with one of Lily’s beaus. Nine months later she can deliver her baby on Offspring. Who will be the father?
That means we may not see the show until October at the earliest. The producers obviously had to wait for Lucy Durack to finishing filming season 2 of Doctor Doctor for Nine and The Letdown for ABC first.
So silly. Just hire someone else. It’s not like she’s anything special. Yet another over exposed actor that gets special treatment.
I hate that method. It’s fine for Northern Hemisphere countries where non ratings/poor ratings occur in the middle but we have forty fucking weeks straight. It just reinforces short attention spans in viewers and lets the networks off the hook by stringing out their poxy dramas.
Still can’t believe this won’t be ready until October. DOA. Ten doesn’t deserve to have any success.
