Based on Karen M. McManus’s #1 New York Times best-selling novel, ONE OF US IS LYING is the story of what happens when five high schoolers walk into detention and only four make it out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

Says Hultquist: “Composing the score for One of Us is Lying was such a blast! I became so attached to these characters by the end of the season, I was fully ready to join up as a member of Murder Club. We really got to pay homage to the John Hughes films of the 80’s, while diving into a twisting story full of secrets, backstabbing & high school drama. I loved getting to do a fully electronic score for this show, and finding unique thematic ideas for the Bayview Four and the spiderweb of connections & relationships that we explore throughout the season.”
