The secret is out. Amazon has picked up the previously cancelled TNT TV show Tell Me Your Secrets.
The thriller “revolves around a trio of characters, each with a mysterious and troubling past: Emma (Lily Rabe) is a young woman who once looked into the eyes of a dangerous killer, John (Hamish Linklater) is a former serial predator desperate to find redemption, and Mary (Amy Brenneman) is a grieving mother obsessed with finding her missing daughter. As each of them is pushed to the edge, the truth about their pasts and motives grows ever murkier, blurring the lines between victim and perpetrator.”
Tell Me Your Secrets was initially ordered to series by TNT in 2018 but the studio later dropped the series. Now, Amazon Prime has picked up the TV show, which is slated to debut on the streamer in 2021.
