'Lies and Deceit', a Spanish thriller series is ready to hit Netflix, this November. The mystery series is based on the book by Harry and Jack Williams, which made its initial release during the beginning of the pandemic under the name 'Mentiras', but the title was later changed to 'Lies and Deceit'.

The Spanish thriller is the masterpiece of Curro Novellas, who was also the backbone of Netflix's 'High Seas' (also called 'Alta Mar'). Currently, he is working as an executive producer on the TV series, 'Los Protegidos: El regreso', to be released on Atresplayer Premium. 'Lies and Deceit' received pretty great reviews from Bluper, an entertainment column from a Spanish newspaper. The column added that the series is “necessary”, and also praises the series' cinematography. What's more, the series has scored a high 6.9 out of 10 on IMDb. The series was broadcasted initially on the Spanish SVOD service, but will now be released on Netflix.

What is 'Lies and Deceit' all about?

The series centers around Angela Cremonte's character Laura Munar, a literature teacher. She wakes up one morning with the niggling suspicion that she was date-raped by a well-renowned surgeon (played by Javier Rey). The mystery-thriller series looks back at this particular encounter. Simultaneously, we also see Laura Munar seek justice against the surgeon in an ongoing legal case but the surgeon denies her account of what happened. It is a given that this Spanish series intends to tell us both sides of the story, which will leave us wondering as to who the real liar is – Laura or Javier?

Who stars in the Netflix series?
