Facebook has some new stars. Deadline reports Elena Kampouris (pictured, left), Ryan Robbins (pictured, right), Kiana Madeira, and Kevin Carroll have joined the streaming service’s new TV series, Sacred Lies.
From True Blood EP Raelle Tucker, the drama “is about a handless teen who escapes from a cult and finds herself in juvenile detention, suspected of knowing who killed her cult leader.”
Facebook has ordered 10 episodes of Sacred Lies; no premiere date has been announced yet.
Read more casting details below:
Kampouris will play Minnow Bly. Physically and emotionally scarred and handless, Minnow is now in juvie for brutally beating a young man.
Carroll will portray Dr. Wilson, Minnow’s mental health coordinator. He’s a forensic psychologist working for the FBI, who’s not your typical on paper psychologist.
Madeira is Angel, Minnow’s roommate in juvie. A science buff (her hero is Carl Sagan) and a convicted murderer (who claims she acted in self-defense), Angel is intrigued by her handless new roommate and her background.
Robbins will play Samuel Bly, Minnow’s father. Once a weak and susceptible man, he joined the cult hoping for a better life for him and his family. Fully believing that the Prophet speaks to God, Samuel instantly becomes the Prophet’s second-in-command.”
