Is It Based On A Real Incident?
‘Lies and Deceit is not based on true events. The show is a remake of Harry Williams and Jack Williams’ British serial Liar. Even though they said, the number of rape incidents influenced them. And claims that were reported throughout their writing process. Harry and Jack stated that the original show’s narrative was not based on any true incident. ‘Liar’ was adapted to a Spanish context by Curro Novellas, who also co-directed ‘Lies and Deceit’ with Norberto López Amado.
Despite being a fictional account, it depicts the difficulties that emerge when cases of rape and claims are presented before a court in real life. In 2019, before the release of the Spanish series, a situation identical to Laura’s occurred in Spain, which aroused the conscience of Spanish society. A 14-year-old girl alleged five men for sexually assaulting her. But like Vera, all of them rejected the allegations. Following a protracted legal struggle, a Barcelona court concluded that rape was not committed since the males were not violent and the girl was intoxicated and asleep.
