Network Ten's upcoming drama Secrets and Lies
has already been sold to the UK, Norway and USA, despite the fact that it is yet to air in Australia.
Described as a nerve racking plunge behind the curtains of suburbia, Secrets and Lies follows the story of Ben, an everyday family man who finds the body of a four-year-old boy and quickly becomes the prime murder suspect.
Produced by Hoodlum for Network Ten, the Australian version consists of six hour-long episodes, and stars Diana Glenn (The Slap) Martin Henderson (Off the Map), Ben Lawson (Neighbours), and Adrienne Pickerine (Rake).
Hoodlem's Tracey Robertson says:
"From the moment we started collaborating about Secrets & Lies, we knew that we had an incredible piece of television in our hands,"
"This acquisition, before the show has even launched in Australia, alongside the recent commissioning of a US version, is testament to the quality of this production."
Ryan Phillippe is currently in talks for the lead role of Ben in the American series, which will air on ABC over 10 episodes.
