Peacock has ordered an eight-episode adaptation based on Karen M. McManus’s book, “One of Us is Lying.”
Elite’s co-creator Darío Madrona will be the show runner. The new series will star Marianly Tejada, Cooper van Grootel, Annalisa Cochrane, Chibuikem Uche, Barrett Carnahan, Jessica McLeod and Melissa Collazo.
The plot: Five high school students walk into detention together but only four make it out alive. Everyone becomes a suspect, and of course everyone has secrets they are hiding.
The pilot episode has already been produced and Erica Saleh wrote the episode. Jennifer Morrison directed and produced the pilot.
John Sacchi and Matt Groesch of 5 More Minutes Productions helped develop the pilot and will serve as executive producers on the series. Saleh will also be an executive producer.
