More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And now one we all knew what was happening sooner or later, but it´s always nice to have the official confirmation from the network.
ABC Family renews The Lying Game for season two, and production is starting this summer for a winter premiere.
The audience for the drama series grew considerably during its first season, surging by double-digit percent margins. The Winter run was up 28% in W18-34 over the first half of its season, with three consecutive weeks of series highs in the demo, and contributed to ABC Family’s biggest 1Q ever in Prime in Women 18-34, Women 18-49 and Females 12-34.
“The Lying Game” follows identical twins Emma Becker and Sutton Mercer who were separated at birth and led very different lives, each oblivious to the other’s existence until circumstances bring them back together. Yearning for the family she never had, kind-hearted foster kid Emma agrees to step into Sutton’s privileged shoes while she searches for their birth parents, setting in motion a web of secrecy and lies.
“The Lying Game” is produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television and is executive produced by Charles Pratt, Jr., Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo. The series stars Alexandra Chando, Andy Buckley, Blair Redford, Alice Greczyn, Allie Gonino and Helen Slater with guest stars Adrian Pasdar and Charisma Carpenter.
