This weekend, Lifetime has another new movie for viewers. Sister Cities brings together an ensemble cast to play four estranged sisters who come together after it appears that their mother committed suicide. The movie debuts on Lifetime on Saturday, September 17 at 8 p.m. ET. Read on to learn about the movie and other opportunities to watch it.

In the film, Jess Weixler (The Good Wife, Listen Up Philip) stars as Austin, the sister who stayed home to care for their mother, Mary, played by two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook). One day, Austin finds Mary dead in the bathtub and she calls in her sisters, who she hasn’t seen in years. Michelle Trachtenberg (17 Again, Gossip Girl) plays Dallas, Stana Katic (Castle) is Carolina and Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars) plays Baltimore.

Sister Cities was directed by Sean Hanish (Lifetime’s Return to Zero) and written by Colette Freedman, who also has a role in the film and wrote the play it’s based on.

“The script is so good that everything about the character is there in the text,” Weaver said in an interview with channel Guide Mag when asked what it was like to play a character whose story is told in flashback. “Sometimes the best research is just to use one’s own imagination!”

Other members of the cast include Alfred Molina, Tom Everett Scott and Amy Smart. Lifetime only picked up the TV rights to the film last month
