|Jennifer M. Kay stars in Sisterly Disorder.|
The web series developed over time as a response to the need of lead female roles in the Philly independent film scene. "I wanted to create something that was funny, but also contained the plot twists, and extended story lines like you find in dramas", says Jennifer. For the past two years, the web series was put on hiatus while Kay focused all of her attention on her feature film, tHe StaLL, also by Luna K. Productions. Now with the film wrapping up, the spotlight is back on "Sisterly Disorder".
After attending a live taping of the soap opera General Hospital, Kay came back feeling inspired and enrolled in classes at "The Actors Center' in Old City Philadelphia. Having always had the writing bug, she quickly composed the first episode of "Sisterly Disorder". After the instructor, Larry Jansen, read the script he agreed to use it as part of the class. The first episode of Sisterly Disorder was performed as a stage play live at The Actor's Center in 2012.
After the initial success of that first performance, it was decided that Sisterly Disorder would become a web series. With the help of the Philadelphia Independent film scene, a few short months later the first episode came to life on YouTube. Now in its second season, Sisterly Disorder has come into its own. In 2014, it received the LA Film Festival “Outstanding Lead Actress Award” for both Jodie Riccelli and Jennifer Kay.
"It's amazing to me that this script containing one episode blossomed into a three season web series. It's completely due to Kay's impeccable work ethic and belief in the project." says Jodie Riccelli who plays the role of Tea in the series. In addition to Jodie, other notable actors and crew members including Patrick Hickman and Tamara Eldridge have graced the set.

Kay's passion for writing continued after Sisterly Disorder, spawning more films a feature entitled tHe StaLL; two short films, Flaws and Breakdown; and a series pilot, Pennsyltucky.
