Seven has announced that hit UK drama Liar will premiere in Australia on Monday, October 30 at 8.45pm.
The six-part series, which stars Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) and BAFTA’s Sian Phillips Award recipient Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four), was created, written and executive produced by BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated producers and screenwriters, Harry and Jack Williams of Two Brothers Pictures (The Missing).
Liar introduces Laura Nielson (Froggatt) a smart and dedicated teacher, and Andrew Earlham (Gruffudd), a renowned surgeon whose son is a student at Laura’s school. After a seemingly innocent date, a series of volatile accusations turn their lives upside down. Secrets and lies slowly unravel in a tense and gripping thriller where everyone is lying in some way until the truth ultimately reveals itself.
Off the back of the show’s nail-biting finale there this week, ITV announced the commissioning of a second series.
Seven’s Director of Programming, Angus Ross, says he is thrilled to bring the provocative hit to Australian audiences.
“Liar doesn’t shy away from exploring a powerful subject,” he said. “The journey towards the truth is full of twists and surprises and viewers will be kept on the edge of their seats as the series unfolds.”
