SundanceTV’s New Psychological Thriller Liar to Premiere September 27


SundanceTV announced the taut psychological thriller Liar will premiere Wed., Sep. 27 at 10/9c. The six-part series, which was created, written and executive produced by BAFTA and Golden Globe® nominated producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams’ of Two Brothers Pictures (The Missing , Fleabag) and co-produced with ITV and All3 Media, stars Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) and BAFTA’s Sian Phillips Award recipient Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four).

Liar introduces Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt) a bright and dedicated teacher, and Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd), a renowned surgeon whose son is a student at Laura’s school. After a seemingly innocent date, a series of volatile accusations capsize their lives. Secrets and lies slowly unravel in a tense and gripping series where everyone is lying in some way until the truth ultimately reveals itself.

“SundanceTV’s gripping, suspenseful thriller, filled with betrayals and deceptions, makes the truth a key character in the story,” said Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager, SundanceTV and Sundance Now. “Deftly written by Harry and Jack Williams, and superbly acted by a cast led by Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd, Liar is provocative and entertaining, and will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.”

Directors include executive producer James Strong (Broadchurch, The Great Train Robbery, 11-22-63) and Sam Donovan (Humans, The Living and the Dead, Utopia). Eliza Mellor (The Living and the Dead, Poldark, Death Comes to Pemberley) produces the series. Filming took place in London and Kent, UK.
