Jennifer Morrison To Direct ONE OF US IS LYING Pilot

The adaptation of Karen M. McManus‘ YA bestseller One Of Us Is Lying is finding its feet with the help of a popular actress and up-and-coming director!

Once Upon A Time and House star Jennifer Morrison is set to direct the series pilot based on a script by Erica Saleh, according to Variety.

Branded as The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, the novel follows five teens who walk into detention… and the four who walk out murder suspects after the fifth dies. Bronwyn, Addy, Nate, and Cooper all have reasons to want Simon dead, but which one actually did it and why?

If it’s picked up to series, One Of Us Is Lying will be released on NBCU’s upcoming streaming service Peacock, which is due to launch in April 2020.

Morrison has previously directed an episode of HBO’s Euphoria, the feature film Sun Dogs, and a short film called Warning Labels.

In May, McManus announced that she’ll be releasing a sequel to the hugely popular title book called One Of Us Is Next in January 2020. It’s currently available for preorder via Amazon and Indiebound.
