Juliette Lewis is going to play a detective on ABC. The actress has booked a role on Secrets & Lies opposite co-stars Ryan Phillippe and Natalie Martinez.
Based on an Australian mystery series, Secrets & Lies is about a man (Phillippe) who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body. Barbie Kligman (Private Practice) is the writer-producer and Charles McDougall (Desperate Housewives) directs the pilot. ABC has made a 10-episode commitment to the project.
Lewis’ last regular TV series gig was NBC’s The Firm. She was also in the films Due Date, Starsky & Hutch and Natural Born Killers.
