Is “Secrets” Better Than “Broadchurch”?

“Ours is so much better” joked Juliette Lewis about “Secrets and Lies,” when asked about this new ABC series’ similarity to “Broadchurch.” They wish! “Secrets and Lies” also stars Ryan Phillippe as Ben Crawford, a man who becomes the prime suspect after he discovers the body of his neighbor’s son in the woods. Juliette Lewis is the obsessive Detective Cornell out to prove Ben is guilty. Much like “Broadchurch” and its woeful American remake, “Gracepoint,” “Secrets and Lies” will reveal the identity of the killer by season’s end. The show premieres Sunday, March 1.
