Elizabeth Banks and Jessica Biel to star in Prime Video series ‘The Better Sister’

Elizabeth Banks and Jessica Biel will star in and executive produce a series based on Alafair Burke’s thriller, The Better Sister.

According to a press release from Prime Video, The Better Sister is an “electric thriller” about how some terrible things pull two sisters apart from each other, and ultimately brings them back together. An official synopsis reads “Chloe (Biel) moves through the world with her handsome lawyer husband Adam and teenage son Ethan by her side while her estranged sister Nicky (Banks) hustles to make ends meet while trying to stay clean. When Adam is brutally murdered, the prime suspect sends shockwaves through the family, laying bare long-buried secrets.”

Olivia Milch (‘Ocean’s 8’) and Regina Corrado (‘Mayor of Kingstown’) will serve as showrunners and executive producers for the Prime Video project, with director Craig Gillespie (‘I, Tonya,’ ‘Pam & Tommy’) helming the series.

Vernon Sanders, head of television for Amazon MGM Studios, said in a statement: “Beyond being an enticing thriller full of twists and turns, The Better Sister is a gripping story about family feuds and forgiveness. The brilliant duo of Jessica Biel and Elizabeth Banks are sure to bring these characters to life in the most authentic way alongside Olivia, Regina, Craig, and the talented team at Tomorrow Studios. The series is in the best hands to bring Alafair Burke’s original IP to life for our global Prime Video customers.”
