Secrets and Lies looks set to have a more successful US season than its original Australian season, after ABC picked it up as a series.
The drama, based on Hoodlum’s series starring Martin Henderson, stars Ryan Phillippe as the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy. Juliette Lewis and Indiana Evans also appear in the drama from ABC Studios and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment.
ABC originally picked up the series with a 10-episode commitment but had not been approved for series.
The Australian season, which premiered in February, had a disappointing run whilst performing on the struggling TEN network.
There aren’t many Australian shows that are viewed more successfully as adaptations than their original run, Wilfred would be one, but this may prove to be another.
