Family, eh. Can't live with them, can't kill them. Or... can you? The thought has clearly crossed the mind of comedy writer and actor Sharon Horgan (This Way Up, Catastrophe), who has teamed up with Apple TV+ to bring us the darkly funny Bad Sisters.

Set in Dublin and London, the show sees the Garvey sisters bound together by a family promise to protect one another after the premature death of their parents. But when one of their lives is threatened by an abusive partner, the siblings close ranks and take matters into their own hands. Problem is, murder isn't quite as easy as it looks on TV...

Horgan, who plays Eva Garvey, is joined by Anne-Marie Duff (Suffragette), Eva Birthistle (Brooklyn), Sarah Greene (Dublin Murders), Eve Hewson (Behind Her Eyes) and Brian Gleeson (Love/Hate). And yes, Brian is the son of legendary Irish actor Brendan Gleeson. Which bodes well if you ask us.

Fancy a darker take on Big Little Lies? Episodes 1 and 2 of Bad Sisters debut globally on Friday 19th August 2022. Follow our guide to watch Bad Sisters online wherever you are in the world.
