Shay Mitchell Heiresses

Shay Mitchell to Star in ABC's Heiresses Family Soap from Pretty Little Liars EP

Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell and executive producer I. Marlene King are reuniting — but not for Freeform’s potential PLL spinoff The Perfectionists.

Mitchell will headline Heiresses, a family soap/mystery written by King which has received a put-pilot commitment from ABC, our sister site Deadline reports.

Based on PLL author Sara Shepard’s 2014 novel, the project is set in the diamond world, where the Saybrooks are a household name. The family has “been blessed with great fortune, but cursed with epic loss. The events surrounding a deadly accident a year ago drove a wedge between the once inseparable diamond empire heiresses. But when an unspeakable tragedy brings the cousins back together, they create a truly unbreakable bond. They set to solve the mystery of who wants the Saybrook family dead before one of them is the next target.”

Mitchell — who spent seven seasons playing Emily Fields on PLL — next co-stars in Lifetime’s upcoming psychological thriller series You, from executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Riverdale) and Sera Gamble (The Magicians, Supernatural).
