Development News - Marianly Tejada and Cooper Van Grootel to Lead Peacock Drama Pilot 'One of Us Is Lying'

Development News - October 30, 2019

Peacock's One of Us Is Lying.

  • Marianly Tejada, Cooper Van Grootel, Annalisa Cochrane, Chibuikem Uche, Jessica McLeod, Barrett Carnahan and Melissa Collazo will lead the cast of the drama pilot written by Erica Saleh. 
  • Tejada (The Purge) will play Bronwyn. Top of her class, she is so focused on the future she rarely thinks about the present. Most classmates admire her more than they like her, and a few rivals wonder how far she'd go to get ahead.
  • Van Grootel (Go!) will play Nate, the school's most notorious drug dealer, a delinquent who lives alone with his alcoholic father. But that's not the only reason he's the police's prime suspect.
  • Cochrane (Heathers) will play Addy, who makes high school look easy, but you don't become the school's most popular cheerleader without hiding secrets. If people really knew her, she fears her whole world might fall apart.
  • Uche (Ghost Draft) will play Cooper, a dominant high school baseball pitcher, scouted by the major leagues. He is on the verge of signing a life-changing professional deal - unless something (or someone) gets in his way.
  • McLeod (You Me Her) will play Janae, a punk outsider who hates her fake classmates. She is left angry and alone when her only friend is murdered. Rather than simply grieve his death, she promises to honor his bitter legacy.
  • Carnahan (The Thundermans) will play Jake, the captain of the football team and Addy's boyfriend. He seems to have it all, but it's never enough.
  • Collazo (Swamp Thing) will play Maeve, Bronwyn's little sister, who developed a tough demeanor while losing years to a childhood fight with Leukemia. In remission now, she's hungry to make up for lost time.
