Apple TV+ have announced details for the much anticipated first project from Emmy nominated and BAFTA Award winner Sharon Horgan ('Catastrophe,' 'Shining Vale'), set to debut later this year.

'Bad Sisters' is a 10-episode series that is said to mix a delicious blend of both dark comedy and thriller as it follows the lives of the Garvey sisters, bound together by the premature death of their parents and a promise to always protect one another. In addition to Horgan, the series will star Anne-Marie Duff ('Suffragette,' 'The Salisbury Poisonings'), Eva Birthistle ('Brooklyn,' 'The Last Kingdom'), Sarah Greene ('Frank of Ireland,' 'Dublin Murders') and Eve Hewson ('Behind her Eyes,' 'The Luminaries' as the Garvey sisters.

Claes Bang ('Dracula,' 'The Northman'), Brian Gleeson ('Frank of Ireland,' 'Peaky Blinders'), Daryl McCormack ('Good Luck to you, Leo Grande,' 'Peaky Blinders'), Assaad Bouab ('Call My Agent,' 'The Pursuit of Love') and newcomer Saise Quinn ('Monster') will round-out the ensemble cast.

'Bad Sisters' is produced by Merman productions and ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios and marks the first series project to premiere from Horgan's first-look deal with Apple TV+ and her Merman production company which signed in 2019.

The series which is executive produced and written by Horgan with Brett Baer and Dave Finkel ('New Girl,' 'United States of Tara') was adapted by Finkel from the 2012 Belgian version of the series 'Clan,' created by Malin-Sarah Gozin. The series which is written by Karen Cogan, Ailbhe Keogan, Daniel Cullen, Perrie Balthazar and Paul Howard will see direction from Dearbhla Walsh, Josephine Bornebusch and Rebecca Gatward.

Up Next: The 2012 Belgian series 'Clan' was available to watch via Prime Video in the UK at the time of publish.
