The Lying Game

"The Lying Game," a new one-hour scripted drama, follows Emma, a kind-hearted foster kid who learns she has an identical twin sister, Sutton. Sutton, unlike Emma, was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living an ideal life. After their initial meeting, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues a lead on the mysterious identity of their birth mother.

After Sutton inexplicably fails to return to the girls' designated meeting place, Emma must decide whether to come clean about her identity and risk her own safety in the hope of uncovering her twin sister's whereabouts, along with the truth about why they were separated in the first place.

"The Lying Game" stars Alexandra Chando ("As The World Turns") as Emma/Sutton; Andy Buckley ("The Office") as Ted; Helen Slater ("Supergirl") as Kristin; Blair Redford ("90210") as Garrett; Sharon Pierre-Louis ("Lincoln Heights") as Nisha; Kirsten Prout ("Kyle XY") as Char; Alice Greczyn ("Lincoln Heights") as Mads; and   Allie Gonino ("10 Things I Hate About You") as Laurel.

Charles Pratt, Jr. ("Ugly Betty," "Desperate Housewives," "All My Children," "Melrose Place") serves as executive producer and writer; Leslie Morgenstein ("Pretty Little Liars," "The Nine Lives of Chloe King," "Gossip Girl," "The Vampire Diaries") and Gina Girolamo will serve as executive producers. Produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, the series is based on the novel by author Sara Shepard (Pretty Little Liars).






Our Treat to Ourselves

Written by my friend Lino Brown

When I got my first big promotion my wife and I decide to reward ourselves with a lake house. We'd always wanted one and there was one we had in mind from the get go and we knew the kids would be over the moon with excitement. We put in a lowball offer and we were totally surprised when it was accepted and we?ve been working on making the place right ever since. I went to DIRECTstartv.com to look into satellite tv for the joint and my husband contacted a guy in town about shoring up the dock. The kids have just been getting bathing suits and practicing their swimming and we?re all really ready to get up there for the first time at the end of the summer! We've had to have the whole inside fumigated so that's kept us out for months at a time and I think as a whole family we're really pumped to get up there and enjoy every aspect of the place at the lake.
