  • Awesome, I like her a lot, However, you really should use a better headshot. I didn’t recognize her initially. I had to google her to find a recognizable pic to realize who it was. (Probably didn’t help that I got Private Practice mixed up with The Practice in my quick reading mind).

  • Does anyone else think Secrets & Lies is a really generic name for a show? That’s what 90% of dramatic television is about.

    • Terrible title. And I can’t see how a show like this can last more than a season.

  • This show is now at the top of my most-anticipated tv pilot list for next season. I love Kadee. I hope this show gets picked up to series. And I like the title–I think it’s a good one for people looking on a channel guide for something to watch.

  • ‘Secrets & Lies’ is shaping up to be one of the strongest drama pilots of this season. Especially with its 3, solid, equally-incredibly talented leading cast of Ryan Phillippe, KaDee Strickland, Juliette Lewis, & Natalie Martinez. Hope this goes to series!
