Erica Saleh, the developer of the collection, mentioned the next about One of Us Is Lying in a press release:
“When I first learn Karen McManus’s novel, I used to be stunned and thrilled by the thriller. But what I actually fell in love with, what made me wish to make this present, have been the characters. On its floor, One of Us is Lying is a homicide thriller, and that half is thrilling to write down and (I hope!) thrilling to observe. But, at its coronary heart, this can be a character drama about youngsters rising up and discovering their strategy to stay extra genuine, sincere lives. In the primary season our heroes started as highschool archetypes straight out of The Breakfast Club: The Nerd, The Jock, The Beauty, and The Bad Boy. But after witnessing a classmate die and changing into suspects in his homicide, they have been pressured to turn out to be extra sincere about who they’re and what they need. Over the course of the season we peeled again the layers and revealed the actual, advanced youngsters combating to interrupt free of those clichés. Our heroes stood as much as their controlling dad and mom, got here out of the closet, left poisonous relationships, handled the stresses of faculty functions… and, sure, solved a homicide.
In Season Two, we proceed this shocking emotional journey as our children reckon with the joys and worry of exhibiting the world who they are surely… whereas hiding a lethal secret and being tortured by the mysterious Simon Says. And we’ve got a ton of juicy, soapy enjoyable whereas we do it! The most essential factor to me in writing a present for teenage audiences, is to place good, advanced, genuine characters on display screen, and to take their feelings significantly. Being an adolescent is thrilling, and it’s additionally terrifying. Figuring out who you’re, and what you need is complicated and it will probably really feel so so lonely. My best hope is that seeing this present will make our younger viewers really feel extra seen and fewer alone – and that it’s going to make them chuckle, cry, and scream on the similar time. Luckily, these characters are dropped at life by an ensemble of breakout stars and we’re so excited for extra viewers to find this absurdly gifted and beautiful solid, and fall in love with them, as we’ve got.”
