Lifetime Premieres the New Original Series 'ANGELA'S EYES,' a Captivating and Suspenseful Drama About a Young FBI Agent With the Unique Ability of Uncovering Lies Beginning Sunday, July 16 (10:00 - 11:00 PM ET/PT) on Lifetime

Series Stars Abigail Spencer ('All My Children'), Lyriq Bent ('Kojak'), Joe Cobden ('The Aviator') and Rick Roberts ('Kevin Hill') as an Elite FBI Surveillance Team

Series Comes From Creative Team of Academy Award(R)-Winning 'Crash' Executive Producers Tom Nunan, Cathy Schulman, Writer/Producers Dan McDermott, Scott Shepherd and NBC Universal Television Studio Premiere Episode Directed By Emmy(R) Award Winner Michael Watkins ('Prison Break,' 'Smallville')

LOS ANGELES, June 19 -- Lifetime turns up the heat on the bad guys this summer with the premiere of the new drama series ANGELA'S EYES, about a tough, young, instinctive FBI agent with the keen ability to expose liars, making her a key asset to the force in solving even its most difficult cases. Abigail Spencer ("All My Children") stars as Angela Henson alongside Lyriq Bent ("Kojak") as Angela's hard-nosed partner Leo, Joe Cobden ("The Aviator") as tech genius Dozer and Rick Roberts ("Kevin Hill") as Gene, Angela's boss and mentor. The series debuts Sunday, July 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and marks the first drama series order from Lifetime's President of Entertainment Susanne Daniels since joining the company in September 2005.

The series is created and executive produced by Dan McDermott ("The Omen") and executive produced by Academy Award(R) Winners Tom Nunan and Cathy Schulman ("Crash"). Scott Shepherd ("Reunion," "Tru Calling") also serves as executive producer and show runner. ANGELA'S EYES is a production of The Cleary Company and Bull's Eyes Entertainment in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Emmy(R) Award-winner Michael Watkins ("CSI," "Prison Break," "Smallville") directed the premiere episode.

ANGELA'S EYES centers on Angela Henson (Spencer), a young fearless FBI agent with the exceptional gift of knowing when someone is lying. She honed this skill years after she shockingly found out her "typical" American parents were actually spies -- CIA operatives who gave information to the Eastern Block in Europe -- and are now serving time in prison for treason.

In an attempt to right her parents' wrongs, Angela joined the FBI, the same agency that brought her parents down for their illegal activities. Under the watchful eye of her boss Gene (Roberts), the man who helped capture her mother and father, Angela works with a brilliant surveillance team consisting of her dependable partner Leo (Bent) and gadget guru Dozer (Cobden).

In addition to her demanding job, Angela continues to wrestle with the constant attempts by her imprisoned parents Colin (Tony(R) and Drama Desk Award Winner Boyd Gaines, "Contact") and Lydia (Alberta Watson, "24," "La Femme Nikita") to stay in touch and has to deal with her flighty, pathologically lying younger brother Jerry (Paul Popowich, "The L Word"), who continues to maintain the innocence of their parents despite the preponderance of evidence against them.

Although Angela's gift of spotting liars is an asset professionally, it's her greatest liability personally as she is unable to trust anyone around her, proving relationships to be more than a little blurry.
