Hulu’s latest series, “Tell Me Lies”, a thrilling, coming-of-age story that explores toxic relationships, ruthless ambition, and shocking betrayals, is all set to premiere this Wednesday, September 7.
Based on Carola Lovering’s twisted modern love novel of the same name and starring Grace Van Patten, Jackson White, Branden Cook, Sonia Mena, Catherine Missal, Benjamin Wadsworth, and Alicia Crowder, “Tell Me Lies” follows a tumultuous but intoxicating relationship as it unfolds over the course of 8 years. When Lucy Albright and Stephen DeMarco meet at college, they are at that formative age when seemingly mundane choices lead the way to irrevocable consequences. Although their relationship begins like any typical campus romance, they quickly fall into an addictive entanglement that will permanently alter not only their lives but the lives of everyone around them.
Meaghan Oppenheimer serves as executive producer and showrunner. Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss executive produce under their Belletrist Productions banner along with Matt Matruski, Laura Lewis, and Stephanie Noonan who executive produce for Rebelle Media, and VICE Studios’ Shannon Gibson and Sam Schlaifer who executive produce for Vice-owned Refinery29. Jonathan Levine also serves as executive producer and pilot director. Lovering also serves as a consulting producer for the show.
In anticipation of “Tell Me Lies” premiering this September 7 on Hulu, CinemaChords sat down with cast regulars Grace Van Patten, Jackson White, Sonia Mena, Catherine Missal, Alicia Crowder, Branden Cook, Benjamin Wadsworth and Spencer House as well as executive producer and showrunner Meaghan Oppenheimer, and serving executive producers Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss who discussed the keenly poignant themes the series addresses and how the subject matter and the characters’ traits and behaviors provide a decidedly discerning cautionary tale.
