LOS ANGELES, CA – July 29, 2017 – SundanceTV announced today the taut psychological thriller “Liar” will premiere Wednesday, September 27th at 10p/9c. The six-part series, which was created, written and executive produced by BAFTA and Golden Globe® nominated producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams’ of Two Brothers Pictures (“The Missing ,” “Fleabag”) and co-produced with ITV and All3 Media, stars Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt (“Downton Abbey”) and BAFTA’s Sian Phillips Award recipient Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four).
“Liar” introduces Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt) a bright and dedicated teacher, and Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd), a renowned surgeon whose son is a student at Laura’s school.
