About the Show

Brothers & Sisters is an American television drama series created by Jon Robin Baitz and produced by ABC Studios which revolves around the upper class Walker family and their supposedly perfect all-American lives in Los Angeles, California.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 24 September, 2006 to 8 May, 2011. There are 109 hour-long episodes in five seasons.

The series originally aired in South Africa on M-Net from 23 August, 2007 to 12 September, 2011. It later aired on DStv's M-Net Series channel, on TopTV's Top One channel, on SABC3 and on StarSat's Star One channel.

About the Show

Brothers & Sisters is like that awkward family reunion, where everyone is airing their dirty secrets at the dinner table. The thing is, with the Walkers, they're dropping these bombshells at every meal.

The Walkers appear to be the perfect all-American family, but it's up to matriarch Nora Walker (Sally Field) to hold everyone together as they cross paths with divorce, infidelity, addiction, war, politics, prejudice and death.

There's Kitty Walker (Calista Flockhart) who's switched career paths, cheated on her previous fiancé and has adopted a child with her new hubby, hunky politician Robert McCallister (Rob Lowe).

There's Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys), who's openly gay and Uncle Saul (Ron Rifkin), who's dealing with coming out of the closet late in life.

And even the mistress of Nora's late husband, Holly Harper (Patricia Wettig), has become part of the family since she has a stake in the family business, Ojai Foods and her daughter Rebecca (Emily Van Camp) is engaged to the youngest Walker Justin (Dave Annable).

Who knows what other family members might creep up - there seems to be an endless supply of affairs and illegitimate offspring being paraded out in the wine-soaked, soapy world of the Walkers.

For all of the dysfunctional drama, the Walkers know that the family that drinks together, stays together. As the empty wine bottles pile up, the lips loosen and the secrets pour out just as fast as the vino.

While we'd give anything to attend one of their raucous dinner parties, we all know we'd be better off posting our deep dark secrets on Facebook than sharing them with Nora and company.

Ken Olin (Alias, thirtysomething) and Jon Robin Baitz (The Substance of Fire, The West Wing) are executive producers, and Greg Berlanti (Everwood) serves as creative consultant. The series is produced by Touchstone Television.
