The Sullivan Sisters pilot ran on PAX (now Ion Television) in 2000 and tells the story of Heath (Larry Poindexter), who is forced to raise his four daughters on his own after the passing of his wife. Each of the family members is dealing with the loss of Mrs. Sullivan differently, from eldest Shelby (Stacy Fuson) to Kaitlin (Hope Harris) and Peyton (Kayla Ewell) who are struggling to not feel like they're different from everyone at her school for losing a parent. Heath struggles to manage all of these issues and be strong for his children while at the same time mourn the loss of his wife. With the assistance of his sister and the occasional advice from his wife who appears to him from time to time, Heath must try to make the best of a turbulent family situation. Filmed in Nashville, Tennessee, many of the area's idyllic suburban neighborhoods serve as the backdrop to this family-focused drama.
