Ryan Phillippe Signs On For New ABC Series 'Secrets & Lies'


Ryan Phillippe is full of "Secrets & Lies."

Well, at least his future is.

Deadline reports that Phillippe is attached to star in the upcoming ABC 10-part whodunit "Secrets & Lies," a remake of an Australian series. Phillippe will play a family man whose life is turned upside after he discovers the body of a young boy and becomes the main suspect of the murder.

Sounds like some lighthearted viewing!

This isn't the first time Phillippe has had a TV stint; he was previously featured on a season of "Damages," and had a recent cameo on TBS' "Men at Work."

No word yet on when the series will premiere but hopefully when it does it will look something like this:
