ABC FAMILY PICKS UP "THE LYING GAME"

Burbank, CA (Tuesday, February 22, 2011) - ABC Family has picked up an additional one-hour scripted drama, "The Lying Game." The drama is in addition to the three previously announced series pick-ups, the one-hour dramas "The Nine Lives of Chloe King" and "Switched at Birth," and the half-hour multi-cam comedy series, "The Great State of Georgia."

"The Lying Game" follows Emma, a kind-hearted foster kid who learns she has an identical twin sister, Sutton. Sutton, unlike Emma, was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living an ideal life. After their initial meeting, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues a lead on the mysterious identity of their birth mother. After Sutton inexplicably fails to return to the girls' designated meeting place, Emma must decide whether to come clean about her identity and risk her own safety in the hope of uncovering her twin sister's whereabouts, along with the truth about why they were separated in the first place. "The Lying Game" stars Alexandra Chando ("As The World Turns") as Emma/Sutton; Andy Buckley ("The Office") as Ted; Helen Slater ("Supergirl") as Kristin; Blair Redford ("90210") as Garrett; Sharon Pierre-Louis ("Lincoln Heights") as Nisha; Kirsten Prout ("Kyle XY") as Char; Alice Greczyn ("Lincoln Heights") as Mads; and Allie Gonino ("10 Things I Hate About You") as Laurel. Charles Pratt, Jr. ("Ugly Betty," "Desperate Housewives," "All My Children," "Melrose Place") serves as executive producer and writer; Leslie Morgenstein ("Pretty Little Liars," "The Nine Lives of Chloe King," "Gossip Girl," "The Vampire Diaries") and Gina Girolamo will serve as executive producers. Produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, the series is based on the novel by author Sara Shepard (Pretty Little Liars).
