The TV movie Sister Cities on Lifetime is about four estranged sisters (named after places – Baltimore, Carolina, Dallas and Austin) who are forced to reunite after their mother Mary’s (Jacki Weaver) suicide. The movie is based on the stage play of the same title by Colette Freedman. Each Baxter woman has her own set of problems and the eldest, Carolina, is no exception to the rule.
Carolina Baxter is portrayed by Stana Katic. The Canadian-born actress is best known for her role as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett on the ABC hit series Castle which ended this year after eight seasons. Prior to Castle, Katic had recurring roles on Heroes (Hana Gitelman), 24 (Colette Stenger), and ER (Blaire Collins), among others. Sister Cities premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, September 17 at 8pm.
