Now in its third season, twenty-something half-sisters Mona and Dee Dee Thorne had only one thing in common - their father. Growing up separately, these two virtual strangers suddenly became neighbors in the same San Francisco apartment building and experience the challenges of sisterhood for the first time. Now that they have grown closer, they realize that despite their different upbringings they share more similarities than they thought.

Yvette Lee Bowser ("A Different World," "Living Single" and "For Your Love") is executive producer. Jeffrey Klarik ("Mad About You") created the series. The series is produced by SisterLee Productions, Inc. in association with Eye Productions Inc.
