Imagine a world where John Hughes sends five kids into detention, but only four come out alive.
(Damn, we wish he’d written a murder mystery now that we think about it.)
The Breakfast Club-esque premise starts with the same teen stereotypes in trouble before kicking off a highly dramatic mystery in the new Peacock original, One of Us Is Lying.
But we don’t want to spoil anything beyond that.
Except know that you’ll find an LGBTQ main character, as well as behind-the-scenes showrunner Darío Madron to draw you into the world based on Karen M. McManus’s New York Times best-selling novel. It’s great to see that so many streamers continue to develop content filled with people from our community.
Watch the trailer below for a taste, then stream the first episode today for a heaping portion of angst. Plus, way more intrigue than your own high school experience (at least we hope).
