Actors must deal with the truth of 'Liar'

Actors rarely get the chance to see into the future when they sign on for a television series that could run for years. That changes with a short-run offering like "Liar," set to debut on Sept. 27 on SundanceTV.

What starts as a beautiful evening ends in accusations of rape.
