ABC Family has added the one-hour scripted drama “The Lying Game” to its schedule, according to a news release.

“The Lying Game” joins  three previously announced series pick-ups:  the one-hour dramas “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” and “Switched at Birth” and the half-hour multi-cam comedy series, “The Great State of Georgia.”

“The Lying Game’s” plot line centers on Emma, a kind-hearted foster teen who discovers she has an identical twin sister, Sutton.

Unlike Emma, Sutton was adopted by rich parents and is seemingly living an ideal life.

After their first meeting, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she follows a lead on the identity of their birth mother, but then Sutton mysteriously fails to return to the girls’ designated meeting place.

This leads Emma to have to decide whether to tell the truth about her identity and risk her own safety in the hope of finding her sister and figuring out why they were separated in the first place.

Alexandra Chando stars as Emma/Sutton; Andy Buckley as Ted; Helen Slater as Kristin; Blair Redford as Garrett; Sharon Pierre-Louis as Nisha; Kirsten Prout as Char; Alice Greczyn as Mads; and Allie Gonino as Laurel.

Charles Pratt Jr. is executive producer and writer of the series, with Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo serving as executive producers.

“The Lying Game,” produced by  Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, is based on the novel by Sara Shepard.
