Season 1

Ben Crawford (Ryan Phillippe) is about to go from Good Samaritan to murder suspect after he discovers the body of his neighbour's young son, Tom Murphy, in the woods.

Even as Detective Andrea Cornell (Juliette Lewis) digs for the truth in her investigation and pegs Ben as a person of interest, the case unfolds from Ben's perspective - whether he is guilty or not.

In trying to clear his name, it is Ben who peels back the layers of these suburbanites' lives in their quiet cul de sac, revealing their dirty little deceptions and all-too-crowded closets overflowing with skeletons.

No one is above suspicion. Ben's family's life, already privately in disarray, is turned upside down as he sets out on a complicated journey to prove his innocence.

Secrets and Lies stars Ryan Phillippe (Damages, The Lincoln Lawyer, Flags of Our Fathers) as Ben Crawford, Juliette Lewis (August Osage County) as Detective Cornell, KaDee Strickland (Private Practice) as Christy Crawford, Natalie Martinez (Under the Dome, CSI: NY) as Jess Murphy, Dan Fogler (The Goldberg's, Hannibal) as Dave Lindsey, Indiana Evans (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening) as Natalie Crawford and Belle Shouse as Abby Crawford.

Barbie Kligman (Private Practice) developed the mystery thriller, which is based on the original Australian series Secrets & Lies, created by Stephen Irwin. The teleplay for Secrets and Lies' series pilot, entitled The Trail is by Kligman, who also executive produced along with Aaron Kaplan (Chasing Life, The Neighbors, Mysteries of Laura), Tracey Robertson, Nathan Mayfield and Charles McDougall (Resurrection), who also directed the pilot.

Executive producers of Secrets and Lies include Kligman for Avenue K Productions, Kaplan for Kapital Entertainment, Robertson and Mayfield for Hoodlum Entertainment and Timothy Busfield.

Secrets and Lies is a production of ABC Studios.
