Tell Me Lies Plot
According to the official press release by Hulu states, “Tell Me Lies” follows a tumultuous but intoxicating relationship as it unfolds over the course of 8 years. When Lucy Albright (Grace Van Patten) and Stephen DeMarco (Jackson White) meet at college, they are at that formative age when seemingly mundane choices lead the way to irrevocable consequences. Although their relationship begins like any typical campus romance, they quickly fall into an addictive entanglement that will permanently alter not only their lives but the lives of everyone around them.
Tell Me Lies Cast and Crew
The main cast members of the series, along with their respective character descriptions, are as follows:
Grace Van Patten as Lucy Albright: On the surface, she is a sheltered but well-adjusted girl from an affluent Long Island town. Her acerbic humor and often cool demeanor have earned her the label of “Ice Queen” among her friends. But beneath her confident façade, Lucy is hiding a childhood trauma that has left her feeling disconnected from her peers. When she meets Stephen, Lucy sees a dark streak in him that she recognizes in herself and will inadvertently bring her demons to light.
Jackson White as Stephen DeMarco: With an enigmatic quality and fierce intelligence, Stephen’s ability to read people has always been a means of survival. But underneath his charm, he has a dark side. When he meets Lucy (Van Patten) he will bring out a side of her that is simultaneously enthralling and frightening. Together they will embark on a tumultuous journey with repercussions that neither could have predicted.
Catherine Missal as Bree: Grounded and caring with a strong sense of who she is, Bree is one of Lucy’s best friends and has been since their first day of college. Although she initially presents as naive, she is actually anything but.
Spencer House as Wrigley: Wrigley is the most celebrated athlete on campus and always the life of the party. Although it seems like life is easy for him, his big personality hides a wealth of insecurities.
Sonia Mena as Pippa: Pippa is the ringleader of the group who uses her bravado to mask deep insecurity. Although she’d never admit it, she cares way too much about what others think. She and Lucy (Grace Van Patten) become close friends at college, but they find themselves constantly at odds with each other.
Branden Cook as Evan: Evan is a kind, intelligent guy who often feels stunted by his father’s success, causing him to sometimes lack motivation. He is overly concerned with being the “nice guy” and puts his friends’ needs before his own – this leads to a repressed anger that might eventually get the better of him.
Benjamin Wadsworth as Drew: Drew is a college freshman and Wrigley’s younger brother. He is shy but smart and is used to living in the shadow of Wrigley.
Alicia Crowder as Diana: Diana has an Audrey Hepburn air about her, elegant, confident, and poised. But underneath it all, she has a formidable strength and is nobody’s fool. Once Lucy finds out that Diana and Stephen (Jackson White) have been in a tumultuous relationship for years, she is threatened-and rightly so. Diana knows Stephen in a way Lucy does not and knows how to navigate his games.
Oppenheimer is the showrunner, and executive producer alongside Roberts, Karah Preiss, and Matt Matruski via their Belletrist banner, Laura Lewis and Stephanie Noonan for Rebelle Media, and Vice Studios Shannon Gibson and Sam Schlaifer for Vice-owned Refinery29. Lovering serves as a consulting producer. 20th Television is the studio.
