ABC Family has picked up The Lying Game

ABC Family has given an 10-episode order to one-hour drama The Lying Game, the network announced Tuesday.
The series, which is based on the novel by Pretty Little Liars author Sara Shepard, revolves around a kind-hearted foster kid who learns she has an identical twin sister who was adopted by wealthy parents. When the sisters hatch a plan to uncover the identity of their birth mother, one of them goes missing. And the other must decide whether to come clean or find her sister on her own. Alexandra Chando (As The World Turns) stars as the twins.

The Lying Game order follows series pick-ups for dramas The Nine Lives of Chloe King, Switched at Birth and comedy The Great State of Georgia.

The series is producer by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Charles Pratt, Jr. (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) is the writer/executive producer with Leslie Morgenstein (Pretty Little Liars, The Nine Lives of Chloe King) and Gina Girolamo. The series is produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.

The Lying Game is expected to bow later this year on ABC Family.

Alright, well, I for one am so excited for this. I loved the book, and the TV adaption of Pretty Little Liars.
Unfortunately, as I was reading the above, it says that the sisters meet ' to uncover the identity of their birth mother'. 
HUH? If I remember correctly, they don't even meet, let alone devise a plan to find their mother.
Hopefully this is a typo, or a mistake.

And as for who is playing Sutton/Emma, it is Alex Chando:

I think she portrays the picture-perfect life of Sutton well. 



  1. holy crap! no way! thats awesome! can't wait to see it on the tv :)


  2. Great that's a good news! As long as they don't screw it up

  3. OH MY GOODNESS! I cannot believe this! I am so stoked! I adore "The Lying Game." I swear, Sara Shepard is SO brilliant! I'm a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars, too, of course! I can't wait to see what's to come with this. I think Alexandra Chando is also a fabulous Emma / Sutton :)
