Scripted Format | London | 04/10/2019

All3media international has signed further scripted format deals for hit thriller Liar it announced today, as broadcasters in Spain commission new local adaptations. Originally produced by Two Brothers Pictures for ITV, UK and AMC, USA in association with all3media international, the second series of the UK version of Liar delivers early next year.

From Harry and Jack Williams, writers of The Missing, Liar is a tale of consent, modern-day gender politics, family life and deceit. Nominated for multiple awards and winner of Best New Drama at the TV Choice Awards, the original drama starred Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) and Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four).

In Spain, Atresmedia has licensed scripted format rights to Liar and has appointed its in-house production company, Atresmedia Studios, to produce a six-part series. The drama will be filmed in Madrid and Majorca, and it will debut on prime time in Antena Tres. Javier Rey (Hache, Cocaine Coast) and Ángela Cremonte (Cable Girls) are confirmed for the lead roles.

Sonia Martinez, executive producer, stated: At Atresmedia we are very happy to be able to adapt, with Atresmedia Studios, a series of such quality and success as ‘Liar’. It is a thriller with very polyhedral characters and, while the suspense keeps you hooked on the story, a social debate is generated in the viewer that transcends the plot itself. This is a significant factor of the series, which is very current in today’s world. ‘Mentiras’, which will be the title of the series in Spain, will be a faithful adaptation to the original, but with features of the DNA of our fiction label. It is a project that excites us because behind it there are great professionals of the Spanish audiovisual sector”

Further commissions of Liar in European territories are expected to be confirmed shortly.

In India – a Hindi version of the show has been produced by Bodhi Tree Productions for VOOT – Viacom 18s OTT service. This local version is called “Marzi” and also runs 6 x 6 hr. Further details of the Indian version will be release shortly.

These latest deals add to the recent adaptation of Liar in Italy, where the drama is known locally as Non Mentire. Produced by Indigo Film for Canale 5, the Italian version, available as 6 x 60’ or 3 x 120’ episodes, aired in February this year and stars Alessandro Preziosi (Medici) and Greta Scarano (La linea verticale). Distribution rights to Non Mentire outside Italy are managed by all3media international.
