"Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit to either" (Aesop)

New York, NY - September 30, 2016 - Acclaimed actors Joanne Froggatt ("Downton Abbey") and Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four) star in a compelling emotional six-part thriller from Two Brothers Pictures. "Liar" starts shooting in November 2016 and is being produced in conjunction with ITV in the UK.

Created and written by BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams, "Liar" tells the story of a night that changes the lives of Laura Newell (Joanne Froggatt) and Andrew Ellis (Ioan Gruffudd) forever.

Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a student at Laura's school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realizes the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in a tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

"Liar" explores the devastating cost of deceit on both the couple and their friends and family, as secrets and lies are laid bare...

"'Liar' is that rare combination of a thoughtful and emotional exploration of the human condition, and a page turner. The Williams Brothers have created something both relevant and compelling, attributes that the SundanceTV audience respect and embrace," said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.

ITV's new Head of Drama, Polly Hill, will oversee production on behalf of the broadcaster.

"I am so delighted to have arrived at ITV and to be working with Jack and Harry Williams on 'Liar,'" said Polly. "They are brilliant storytellers, who have written a gripping thriller that doesn't shy away from exploring a powerful subject. I'm thrilled we've commissioned 'Liar' for ITV and secured such a terrific cast."

The 6 x 60' series will be executive produced by Harry and Jack Williams ("Fleabag," "The Missing," "One of Us") whose production company, Two Brothers Pictures, was established in 2014. Lead director is BAFTA winner James Strong ("Broadchurch," "The Great Train Robbery," "11-22-63") who will also executive produce.

Eliza Mellor ("The Living and the Dead," "Poldark," "Death Comes to Pemberley") will produce the series. Sam Donovan ("Humans," "The Living and the Dead," "Utopia") will direct episodes 4 to 6. Filming will begin in London and Kent in November.

Harry and Jack Williams commented, "We're delighted to be reunited with Polly Hill in her new role at ITV and join forces with SundanceTV. This story deals with highly emotional and important subject matter, exploring modern issues of gender politics through the lens of a character-driven emotional thriller. We couldn't be happier with the caliber of the team we have working on this."

all3media International negotiated the arrangement with SundanceTV and is handling international sales for the series.
