Rose d’Or 2022 shortlist in the Drama category

“Wickedly funny, genuinely poignant” – TIME 

“Bad Sisters delivers what contemporary streaming demands: narrative franticity and cliffhangerism of the sort that compels viewers to binge.” – Vanity Fair 

“Beyond the smart construction and tart dialogue […] “Bad Sisters” succeeds because the five lead actresses convince us that they’re a family unit, sometimes for worse but mostly for better.” – New York Times 

“This wicked revenge fantasy about five sisters who attempt to kill a monstrous husband is wonderfully cathartic, perfectly paced and hugely witty. Its brilliant cast don’t put a foot wrong” – The Guardian 

“Hiring Horgan – who has a history of writing dark, complex, female-led comedies that make us care for characters who behave terribly – to helm the project is a masterstroke” – NME 

  “You may not see a better cast all year than the one in Bad Sisters.” Radio Times 

“It’s a twisty, acid-laced comic confection that could only have come from the mind of Horgan” – VOGUE
