Independent distributor All3Media International has secured a raft of international acquisitions for production company Sister’s drama Better across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South America and the US.
BETTER Sister 25Sep2023
Written and created by Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent, Better follows the story of Lou, a high ranking police officer, whose shared history with powerful criminal Col continues to bind her to him despite their separate paths. But one night, when Lou’s teenage son almost dies, Lou’s finds herself grappling with a painful moral awakening.

Exploring the complex and powerful bonds of loyalty and family, Better is set in a world where everyone has their own version of “right” and “wrong”. Examining the power of human conscience and the need for redemption, Better examines the ties that bind, the ties that define, and the ties that break.

Following the series premiere on commissioning broadcaster BBC One in the UK earlier this year, streaming platform Hulu becomes the latest international partner to launch Sister’s five-part series with US audiences now able to watch all episodes. Following successful international deals the series has also launched on Pickbox in the Balkans, Sýn hf in Iceland, Binge and Foxtel On Demand in Australia and on TVNZ in New Zealand.

Additional recent deals that will see the drama playing later this year include BritBox International for Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden, NPO in the Netherlands, VRT in Belgium and America Video Films in a pan-territory deal covering South America.

“Sister’s utterly compelling series breathes new life into the traditional police corruption drama, offering both a fast paced, tightly plotted thriller and compelling character study of a woman grappling with her conscience and morality after decades of wrongdoing,” said Maartje Hochner EVP content at All3Media International.

“Featuring a stellar central performance from Leila Farzad who expertly balances Lou’s flawed and complex journey to redemption with wit, humour and humanity, Better’s enthralling storytelling, universally powerful themes and fantastic cast, have connected with leading international partners and their audiences around the world.”
