The Lying Game is on the move…again. After premiering in the UK on 5* last year in the Thursday night 8pm time-slot, the series was shifted to sister channel 5USA in a daytime slot following disappointing ratings. I’ve now learned that when the series returns for its second season next month it will be returning to 5* rather than staying put on 5USA.
The Lying Game was created by Sara Shepard and follows identical twins Emma Becker and Sutton Mercer, who were separated at birth and have led very different lives, each oblivious to the other’s existence until circumstances bring them back together. Yearning for the family she never had, Emma agrees to help Sutton with her plan to find their birth parents by stepping into her life for a few days, setting in motion a web of secrecy and lies. The drama series is produced by Alloy Entertainment & Warner Horizon Television and stars Alexandra Chando, Andy Buckley, Blair Redford, Sharon Pierre-Louis, Kirsten Prout, Alice Greczyn, Allie Gonino and Helen Slater.
