Variety skýrir frá og þar segir m.a.:
The crime series, which starts shooting this week, “Sisterhood” follows three women whose are forced to face the horrors of their past after the remains of a 13 year-old girl are discovered 25 years after her mysterious disappearance. “Sisterhood” also centers on Vera, a newly-promoted investigator who is assigned the case, and explores how the three women have gone through their lives carrying the heavy burden of guilt which has marked them all in different ways since their teenage years.
Created by by Sagafilm’s head of development Jóhann Ævar Grímsson (“Stella Blómkvist”), the six-part series is set in the Icelandic capital Reykjavík and a small fishing village – flitting between the 90‘s and present day.
Bringing together some of Iceland’s topnotch creatives, “Sisterhood” was co-written by Björg Magnúsdóttir (“The Minister”) and Jóhanna Friðrika (“Agnes Joy”). The series is being directed by Silja Hauksdóttir, whose critically acclaimed movie “Agnes Joy” premiered at Busan last year.
“Sisterhood” will premiere simultaneously on Viaplay and Síminn in 2021, with the latter retaining domestic first window rights. NBCUniversal Global Distribution handles international sales.
