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, ‘Liar’ is provocative and entertaining, and will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.”
