SVT Slates Sisters Period Drama For Christmas

SVT has announced that filming has just begun for new three-part relationship drama Systrar (Sisters), directed by Kristina Humle (Before We Die).

Set in Ystad during the summer of 1968, Sisters follows newly graduated journalist Karin (Mikaela Knapp) whose dream is to work at Stockholm Dagblad but takes a summer job with a local newspaper.

Karin then rents a room with the family who owns both the newspaper and a hotel in the city, and soon forms a close friendship with the proprietor’s daughter Ingela (Anna Åström).

The stage for drama is set when the pair are joined by Karin’s friend and emerging artist Lottie (Maja Rung), and Karin’s new boyfriend Janne (Hannes Fohlin).

Sisters is set to air on SVT across Christmas 2018 and the New Year.
