Ordinary Lies

Saturdays at 8.30pm from July 25

ABOUT THE SHOW

Compelling drama

We all tell little white lies every day, be it for self-protection, success or for love. But what happens when a spur-of-the-moment mistruth snowballs and begins to take over? Is it possible get away with it, or will the lie inevitably come undone to devastating effect?

Set in a car showroom, Ordinary Lies is a compelling drama about how a simple lie can spiral out of control. With drama, tragedy, warmth and humour, each episode focuses on one of the colleagues and friends of JS Motors. From party-loving receptionists Tracy (Michelle Keegan) and Viv (Cherelle Skeet) and ambitious company boss, Mike (Max Beesley), to enigmatic salesman Pete (Mackenzie Crook) and mothering PA Kathy (Sally Lindsay), each new and individual story questions just how well we know the people we work with.
