The relationship between sisters is like no other – you may want to kill each other one moment, but are connected for life, no matter how much you have in common or what life puts your through. It’s a pretty amazing thing.

A BBC sitcom covering the ups and downs of sisterly bonds, as well as mother-daughter dynamics, named Such Brave Girls, is diving deep into this connection. From the producers of I May Destroy You and written by stand up comic and TV joke writer Kat Sadler, we’re predicting many many laughs, alongside a very British interrogation of female family dynamics.

Here’s everything we know about the show, which starts this week.

What is Such Brave Girls about?

According to the BBC’s official synopsis, Such Brave Girls is a “dysfunctional family sitcom” that follows “sisters Josie (Kat Sadler) and Billie (played by Kat’s real-life sister, Lizzie Davidson) and their single mother Deb (Louise Brealey) navigating life armed with nothing but poor judgement and self-esteem exclusively tied to people who couldn’t care less about them.

“They’re vain, selfish, heavily in debt, pathologically desperate for affection and bursting with misplaced, terrifying love.”

We’re thinking it’s going to straddle the real-life problems that families and young women go through – debt, mental health issues, love life issues – told through the prism of comedy.

Who is in the cast for Such Brave Girls?

Real-life sisters Kat Sadler (the show’s script writer) and newcomer Lizzie Davidson take on the roles of Josie and Billie, while Louise Brealey (Sherlock) plays Deb, their mum.

Paul Bazeley (Benidorm), Amy Trigg, Haruka Kuroda (Killing Eve), Richard Cunningham, Tina Louise Owens, Jennifer Daley (2 Broke Girls) also star.

What have the cast said so far about Such Brave Girls?

Kat Salder describes Such Brave Girls as being about “three damaged narcissists who are desperate for love” – hard relate. She adds that it explores “trauma and dark subject matters”, with the story being tightly bound to her own relationship with her sister. These plotlines “would normally be dealt with in a drama territory, and moving it into a comedy space because that’s how we deal with our issues,” she said. “But it’s proudly a sitcom.”
