Sisters follows Desperate Housewives as Advanced TV Herstory provides focus to the TV show formula that features four main women characters.
Today we will revisit Winnetka, the suburban community where four sisters lived for 6 seasons of the show, Sisters. It aired from 1991 to 1996 and like the show profiled in an earlier podcast, Desperate Housewives, used the stability of its suburban setting as a launching pad for over-the top stories and twists.
This installment reviews the characters and actresses who played then goes on to examine the list of over-the-top stories to better understand how this show, clearly targeted at women, wove in headlines of the day. Listen up and suspend reality as we follow the sisters down the path of snappy dialogue, fashion design and menopause.
