We Were Liars is a “tragic” love story and an amnesia thriller set on a privately owned island off the coast of Massachusetts.

It focuses on the the theme of consequences of one’s mistakes. It is centered on the wealthy, seemingly perfect Sinclair family, who spend every summer sitting gathered on their private island. However, not every summer is the same—when something happens to Cadence during the summer of her fifteenth year, the four “Liars” – Cadence, Johnny, Gat and Mirren – re-emerge two years later to prompt Cadence to remember the incident.

Plec, MacKenzie, Emily Cummins and E. Lockhart will exec produce with Universal Television producing.

Plec is represented by Entertainment 360 and Felker Toczek Suddleson and MacKenzie is represented by WME and Entertainment 360.
