Sisters is an Emmy Award-winning television drama which broadcasted on NBC for six long seasons, from 1991 to 1996. The series was created by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, who also created the Showtime series Queer as Folk and wrote the much-admired Emmy and Peabody Award winning drama An Early Frost, also for NBC.
The show made first appeance on May 11, 1991 for a seven-episode test run and was then improved for the 1991 fall schedule. Sisters was the first primetime network television series to center particularly on the lives of women, and the matters regarding them. It was also one of the first 'demographic' hits owing to its strong female viewership. Other series about women would ultimately follow, but at the time it was regarded as being innovative.
