Ioan Gruffudd Joanne Froggatt Liar Sundance

Forever and Downton Stars' Date Goes Really Wrong in Liar Miniseries — Watch

The next time you’re feeling glum about your romantic life, feel free to cue up these exclusive teasers from SundanceTV’s upcoming miniseries Liar to remind you that sometimes singledom is the safer bet.

The six-part psychological thriller tells the story of Laura Newell (Downton Abbey‘s Joanne Froggatt), a school teacher fresh out of a relationship who reenters the dating scene with Andrew Earlham (Forever‘s Ioan Gruffudd), a surgeon who is the father to one of her students. They get together for a night that sets in motion a series of accusations and lies that take over their lives.

In the teaser videos below, we see Laura and Andrew at the beginning of their evening, when everything is going great, everyone is smiley, and there’s no hint of the massive trouble heading their way. Go ahead and watch, then scroll down for more:

Liar was created, written and executive-produced by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing). It premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 10/9c. Scroll down to take a good look at the exclusive poster below (click on the image to see in full), then hit the comments: Are you planning to tune in to Liar?

    Love those two! Looks awesome!

  2. Steven says:

    I still really miss Forever.

  3. Syl says:

    I’m in. IMO the UK is the last bastion of real actors.

  4. T.W.S.S. says:

    Hmm, small detail, but I like how the teasers were edited. In her version, she says ‘hi’ first. In his version, he says ‘hi’ first. Whose perspective is accurate?

  5. Portia says:

    With those two stars Liar is a must watch. Can’t wait!

  6. Peggy Hedges says:

    I’m really looking forward to this series. Sounds intriguing. Also excited to see Ioan in another series. I was a huge fan of Forever.

  7. DMK says:

    Well, at least the ages aren’t too far apart. (Gruffudd is only 7 years older.)

    The concept isn’t new- what made the first season of The Affair so compelling was the way they showed the same situations multiple times based on different characters’ recollections/perspectives. That being said, The Affair has become blah, this concept will always be intriguing because it is so true to life, and as many have already said, can’t really go wrong with Froggatt and Gruffudd.
