Sharon Horgan, Sarah Greene and Eva Birthistle who star in Apple TV+'s Bad Sisters all agree that it is a "very different Irish show".

Bad Sisters tells the story of the Garvey sisters - played by Sharon Horgan, Anne-Marie Duff, Eva Birthistle, Sarah Greene and Eve Hewson - who are bound together by the premature death of their parents and a vow they made to always protect one another.

But ever since their sister Grace (Anne-Marie Duff) married John Paul Williams (Claes Bang) she has grown more and more distant from her sisters, leaving them to believe she would be better off without her racist, sexist and selfish husband... but just how far are they willing to go to get their sister back?

Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment about the "murder mystery-comedy-thriller" Horgan, who is also the writer and executive producer, said: "I have never tapped into my Irishness in my writing. With Catastrophe, I did a little because I brought in the family element. And I loved the Irish response to that. "I got a real buzz from that and I wanted to create something there [in Ireland].

"It was an absolute ambition to do that and a bit of dream come true."

Cork-born Greene, who plays sharp-tongued Bibi Garvey, explained that she was able to use some of her own family experiences to help create her on-screen bond with her sisters. "My mum is one of five sisters so I grew up watching these dynamics. I only have one sister - but I would kill for her!"

For Birthistle, who grew up in Bray, Co Wicklow, starring in this deliciously dark comedy was not only for the "selfish reason of getting to see family and friends" but also for the "excitement of starring in a very different Irish show".

"It felt like there was something very exciting about it and you can see that onscreen. It's not like any other Irish show that I've seen.

"Ireland produces a great telly, but this is just something different. It is its own beast."

Bad Sisters is currently streaming on Apple TV+ with new episodes landing every Friday.
