Another star of Warner Horizon’s Pretty Little Liars, Shay Mitchell is staying in the Warner Bros. TV fold, following the cult favourite series’ seven-season run. The gorgeous actress has formed production company Amore & Vita Productions and has signed an exclusive multi-year pod deal at WBTV.
As part of the pact, Shay Mitchell has been tapped to co-star opposite Penn Badgley and Elizabeth Lail in Warner Horizon’s upcoming psychological thriller drama titled You on Lifetime, from executive producers/writers Greg Berlanti & Sera Gamble.
Billed as a 21st century love story, You tells the story of Joe (Penn Badgley), a bookstore manager who falls in love with an aspiring writer named Beck (Elizabeth Lail).
Using the Internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle — and person — in his way. (Think Dan Humphrey, but from the darkest timeline.)
🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 so so so excited!!! https://t.co/xxGeW3jrHg

Meanwhile, Shay Mitchell will play Peach Salinger. With vast resources and family money, Peach is the controlling queen bee of Beck’s (Lail) inner circle of privileged friends. She has her sights set on Joe (Badgley), in a way that feels oddly adversarial with Beck.

You will debut on Lifetime Channel in 2018.
