Apple TV+ has today shared the first trailer for its upcoming dark comedy Bad Sisters, a show that will premiere on the streaming service on August 19 with the season running for ten episodes before its conclusion.

The upcoming show, which will see its first two episodes made available on launch day, will see its season come to an end on October 14 and hails from Emmy Award nominee and BAFTA Award-winning creator and star Sharon Horgan. The show also stars Anne-Marie Duff, Eva Birthistle, Sarah Greene, and Eve Hewson.

Bad Sisters, great plot

Bad Sisters tells the story of the tight-knit Garvey sisters, a group that has "always looked out for each other." That takes a turn when their brother-in-law dies and the life insurance company takes a closer look at what went on. Predictably, attention quickly turns to the sisters and any role they might have played in the man's untimely demise.

Bad Sisters is another in a long of shows that make Apple TV+ a bargain at its $4.99 per month price point. That's a fact that's driven home even further when you remember that the Apple One subscription bundle includes access to other Apple services under a single monthly price, often saving subscribers money in the process. Other services included in the bundle are Apple Music, Apple Fitness+, and Apple Arcade among others.

Bad Sisters is the first project to come out of a first-look deal between Apple TV+ and Horgan, with more set to come in the future. The show is also executive produced and written by Horgan, with Brett Baer and Dave Finkel also involved.

While Apple TV+ can be streamed on almost anything with a screen at this point, those hoping to get the very best out of the service should definitely check out the best Apple TV deals and treat themselves to a new set-top box.
