Inspired by the Sara Shepard (Pretty Little Liars) book series of the same name, The Lying Game follows long-lost twins Emma and Sutton. Separated under mysterious circumstances, Sutton was adopted by the wealthy Mercer family in Phoenix, while Emma grew up in the foster system. When the twins reunite as teenagers, they keep it a secret. While Sutton goes in search of the truth, Emma takes over her life and discovers more secrets and lies than she could have imagined.
Channel 5 seemed to have struggled getting the viewing figures for this show. Having originally aired on 5* in Jan 2012, they then stopped it halfway through. Then bought it back in Sept 2012… Then moved it to a lunchtime slot on 5USA… Which is what i’d term as ‘kicking it into the long grass…’ I’m dubious as to whether they’ll air the 2nd season at all, but there’s not official news yet.
