ABC releases first look at locally-shot ‘Secrets & Lies’


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — By now you probably know ABC has picked up the 10-episode run of the crime thriller “Secrets & Lies.” The series shot its pilot in Wilmington earlier this year and will return this summer to resume shooting.

Today we got our first look at the show, starring Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis. The show will solve its mystery in its 10 episodes of Season 1. Then a new cast and crime will be featured in Season 2. The show will likely move to a different place to shoot that season.

The trailer, released as ABC officially announces its new schedule during Upfronts in New York, also features another familiar face and voice. WWAY reporter Sara Hopkins appears as… what else… a news reporter covering the discovery of a murdered 5-year-old boy.

Officially ABC says “Secrets & Lies” is “Coming Soon.” That means the network will save the series until spring when it will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. after “How to Get Away with Murder,” from “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes ends its run.
