TV show description:
Based on the book series from Sara Shepard, the Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists TV show comes from creator I. Marlene King. The spinoff features the return of Pretty Little Liars original cast members Sasha Pieterse as Alison and Janel Parrish as Mona.
The series unfolds at Beacon Heights University and the surrounding town for which it was named. Everything is always perfect in Beacon Heights — at least it is supposed to be, but that very drive for perfection has deadly consequences.
The story centers on three college friends — Ava (Carson), Caitlin (Park), and Dylan (Brown) — known as the Perfectionists. A trendsetting blogger, Ava has designs on being known as a fashionista.
Caitlin is the daughter of two ideal mothers and intends to live up to the standard they’ve set. A type-A personality, she aspires to serve in the Senate.
Dylan, meanwhile, is a talented cellist. Now that he’s shaken off the dust of his judgmental small hometown, he intends to succeed at everything he tries. He is as devoted to his boyfriend as he is to music.
Then there is the matriarch of a powerful Beacon Heights family, Claire Hotchkiss (Rutherford), responsible for founding Hotchkiss Industries and the university. She too strives for perfection at any cost.
When the town’s high-pressured environment proves too much, someone loses it and kills someone. After the first ever murder in Beacon Heights, although they work together to solve the mystery, each Perfectionist hides behind “a secret, a lie, and an alibi.”
Episode #10 — Enter the Professor
