A trio of complicated characters whose lives intersect drive this intense drama, which tackles a provocative topic: “how much we ever really know about the people we love,” says Tell Me Your Secrets creator and executive producer Harriet Warner.

The story centers on Emma (Lily Rabe, above), a woman in witness protection following her love affair with a man who turned out to be a serial killer (Xavier Samuel). That situation was inspired by actual notorious murder cases where a cloud of doubt lingered over a killer’s female partner. “It’s guilt by association. Complicity because of love,” says Warner.

Plus, watch the trailer for the series starring Lily Rabe, Amy Brenneman, Hamish Linklater, and Enrique Murciano.

Among those suspicious of Emma is Mary (Amy Brenneman), a grieving but prickly mother of a missing young woman who truly believes that she knows what happened to her daughter. So she enlists the reluctant John (Hamish Linklater), a paroled criminal desperate to rebuild his life, to find the elusive Emma and get answers.

While there is a dark desperation to much of the action on the series (which was originally intended for TNT), there is also a thrill to figuring out the hidden motives of Mary, John and Emma. They do, after all, have plenty of secrets.
