WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The star of a hit Wilmington-shot TV show is switching channels to WWAY.

“Under the Dome” star Natalie Martinez has signed on for the pilot of the ABC show “Secrets & Lies,” according to Sheila Brothers and The Wilmywood Daily. Martinez has played Sheriff Linda Esquivel, one of the main characters in “Under the Dome.” The show’s executive producer, though, has said a couple of top characters will not survive the premier of UTD’s second season.

Martinez will star opposite Ryan Phillippe in “Secrets & Lies,” which is set to start shooting its pilot later this month in Wilmington. The show, based on an upcoming Australian series, tells the story of a family man (Phillippe), who becomes the prime suspect in a murder mystery after finding a boy’s body. Martinez will reportedly play the boy’s devastated mother.
