Juliette Lewis will join Ryan Phillippe in new US TV murder mystery drama 'Secrets and Lies', playing an intrepid police investigator who must solve the murder of a young boy

Juliette Lewis has joined a new mystery TV drama.

The Oscar-nominated actress will star in ABC's new series 'Secrets and Lies' with Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Phillippe.

The murder mystery show - which is a remake of an Australian TV drama - will follow the death of a four-year-old boy, Tom Mullen, and Juliette is set to play an intrepid police investigator tasked with finding his killer.

The 'August: Osage County' star's character Andrea Cornell will suspect Ryan's alter-ego Ben, a loving father who is first to discover the boy's body.

Juliette's character is described as a formidable detective, who, according to The Hollywood Reporter, can be "hard to read" and is "often if not always the smartest person in the room".

The 40-year-old actress shot to fame with an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination for 'Cape Fear' and played one of the lead roles in cult hit 'Natural Born Killers'.

Her most recent role is the family drama 'August: Osage County', which earned her co-stars Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep Oscar nominations.

Juliette is no stranger to TV roles as she recently starred in miniseries 'Wayward Pines' for US channel FOX and NBC's short-lived drama 'The Firm'.
