^ MAJOR spoilers about the book!
A-ha!...i knew this would get picked up, it's from Sara Shepard ala PLL:
I saw Alexandra Chando guest star on Glory Daze, stunning looking girl!....looks a fair bit like Nina Dobrev.
As expected ABCF has officially picked up TLG for a 10 episode order, nice to see Kristen Prout (Amanda on Kyle XY - also on ABC Family) get a role:
ABC Family has picked up an additional one-hour scripted drama, “The Lying Game.” The drama is in addition to the three previously announced series pick-ups, the one-hour dramas “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” and “Switched at Birth,” and the half-hour multi-cam comedy series, “The Great State of Georgia.”
“The Lying Game” follows Emma, a kind-hearted foster kid who learns she has an identical twin sister, Sutton. Sutton, unlike Emma, was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living an ideal life. After their initial meeting, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues a lead on the mysterious identity of their birth mother. After Sutton inexplicably fails to return to the girls’ designated meeting place, Emma must decide whether to come clean about her identity and risk her own safety in the hope of uncovering her twin sister’s whereabouts, along with the truth about why they were separated in the first place. “The Lying Game” stars Alexandra Chando (“As The World Turns” as Emma/Sutton; Andy Buckley (“The Office” as Ted; Helen Slater (“Supergirl” as Kristin; Blair Redford (“90210” as Garrett; Sharon Pierre-Louis (“Lincoln Heights” as Nisha; Kirsten Prout (“Kyle XY” as Char; Alice Greczyn (“Lincoln Heights” as Mads; and Allie Gonino (“10 Things I Hate About You” as Laurel. Charles Pratt, Jr. (“Ugly Betty” serves as executive producer and writer; Leslie Morgenstein (“Pretty Little Liars” and Gina Girolamo will serve as executive producers. Produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, the series is based on the novel by author Sara Shepard.
ABC Family's newly picked up comedy series The Great State of Georgia is recasting one of the lead. Veteran Loretta Devine is joining the cast of the sitcom, which centers on Georgia (Raven Symone), an exuberant curvy performer from the south, and her science geek best friend Jo (Majandra Delfino) who try to make headway in New York City. Devine will play the flamboyantly effusive Aunt Honey, a Southern grande dame in a silk Open robe and fur-trimmed mules, who is Georgia and Jo's landlady and a dear friend of Georgia's late mother. Devine, who has been recurring on ABC's Grey's Anatomy, replaces Meagen Fay who played the role in the pilot.
I see Blair Redford (Oscar from 90210) is in the cast - I kinda liked him in 90210 would prefer he stayed in that tbh
The Lying Game = Ringer on CW
Interesting note as Liz said, Blair redford is a regular on The Lying Game but he's also been guest starring on Switched At Birth - so i guess this means Ty will be leaving that show and Bay will get a new love interest.

Liz....Blair left Switched At Birth on Mondays ep. - he went off join the army, he's now free for this show
The Lying Game
A lost twin. A dark secret. A deadly game: That's the slogan for ABC Family's upcoming summer show The Lying Game
As said above the same as CW's show Ringer
Some fresh casting news [INCL. Alphas + Covert Affairs]: http://www.tvline.com/2011/07/casting-news-mader-alphas-affairs-lying-game/
ABC Family’s new summer sudser, The Lying Game — which follows recently reunited twins (played by Alexandra Chando) who swap lives for a day, until one mysteriously disappears — doesn’t debut until August 15, but it’s already adding to its cast: TVLine has learned that Step Up 3D‘s leading stud, Rick Malambri, has booked a multi-episode arc as Eduardo, a sexy choreographer at the Royal Ballet Studio in the series’ hometown of Scottsdale. It’s only fitting that Eduardo will become romantically involved with one of his students, but will the lucky lady be Lincoln Heights headturner Alice Greczyn’s Mads, or Kyle XY alum Kirsten Prout’s Char?
Sneak peak, hmmm....the acting from Alexandra ain't great in this scene, we'll see how it goes.
