Sharon Horgan, an actress, comedian, and director, describes her new dark comedic thriller “Bad Sisters” as a celebration of familial bonds.
The 10-episode series is set in Ireland and follows five close-knit sisters who lost their parents at a young age.
When the husband of one of the sisters dies unexpectedly, insurers turn their eyes on the five, discovering that each of them had a motive to kill Claes Bang’s cruel and coercive John Paul.
Horgan adapted the series from the Belgian television series “Clan,” in which she also stars alongside Anne-Marie Duff, Eva Birthistle, Sarah Greene, and Eve Henson.
“It’s about four sisters who try and rescue their fifth sister from a monstrous relationship. A lot of funny happens off the back of that but really it’s about love and family,” Horgan, one of five siblings, told the reporters on the eve of the premiere of the show.
Brian Gleeson and Daryl McCormack portray the insurance agents and half-brothers Thomas and Matt Claffin, who have their own reasons for investigating John Paul’s death further.
The series begins with John Paul’s funeral and then swings back in time to illustrate his authoritarian behaviour before to his death.
As the show progresses, the sisters’ efforts to eliminate John Paul acquire speed, having begun as playful banter.
“Even if it is funny, it is about a very abusive relationship. So, I hope there’s something perhaps in there that can actually say something and resonate with people in a way that could mean something to them,” said Bang.
Duff, who portrays his wife Grace, stated that portraying the role required a significant sense of responsibility.
“I had to invest it with as much integrity as if I were doing a serious drama, because there could be people watching the show, men and women, who are in maybe bullying circumstances for whom it’s very powerful and helps them recognise things,” she added.
On Friday, “Bad Sisters” begins streaming on Apple TV+.
