PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: THE PERFECTIONISTS (Neon)

Pretty Little Liars

was a guilty pleasure for many; teen drama meets murder mystery, with a stupid amount of glitz and glam that makes for totally outlandish viewing - what more could you want of a distraction show? This series takes on the same idea in a new town and a new group of picture-perfect pretty little liars. With students being pressured to be their absolute best, the town is shaken when somebody snaps. And somebody dies. The Liars work on the whodunnit aspect of the crime and uncover the town's secrets in the process. Check it out on Neon now.
