Pretty Little Liars Premiere and Secret Keepers!

So as you may know, I was selected to play the Pretty Little Liars Secret Keeper (to promote the new tv show based on the books airing on ABC Family starting TOMORROW June 8th at 8pm ET/7pm CT) game last month. They even sent me a Droid phone!

The game's been going on since May 25th and I have to say this is one of the most genius promotional projects I have ever seen. The amount of thought and preparation that went into this blows my mind. Not only that, it's FUN!

I'm playing Emily Fields:

Emily Fields' life is picture-perfect. It should be. After all, her mom makes sure everything in their world is just so. So why does Emily dream of getting out of Rosewood? She's a star athlete with a popular boyfriend, but Emily feels like an outsider. Maybe that's why she's drawn to Maya, the new girl in town. They become fast friends, but Emily's feelings are a little more complicated than simple friendship. Question is how far will she dare take them? Or will she have to hide them, too? As "A" points out, it's not the only secret Emily is hiding.

I'm in a group with three other players who are playing the three other main characters, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer. Every other day or so we get text messages with challenges that we have to complete or else, our secrets will be revealed by A (who is possibly our missing, presumed dead... or is she... friend.) A also likes to taunt us via facebook even commenting on our status updates! So far I've had to make embarrassing phone calls, scour the internet for various items, design cool outfits on polyvore and I'm VERY nervous about what might come next!

About The Show
(blurb from ABC Family)
Rosewood is a perfect little town. So quiet and pristine, you'd never guess it holds so many secrets. Some of the ugliest ones belong to the prettiest girls in town -- Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily, four estranged friends whose darkest secrets are about to unravel.

One year ago, Alison, the Queen Bee of their group, disappeared and the girls swore they'd never tell what really happened that night. They thought their secrets would bond them together, but just the opposite is true. Then again, who's to say what the truth is in Rosewood. It seems everyone in town is lying about something.

Now, as the mystery surrounding Alison's disappearance resurfaces, the girls begin getting messages from "A," saying – and threatening – things only Alison would know. But it couldn't be Alison. Could it? Whoever it is, they seem to know all the girls' secrets, and seem to be watching their every move. The girls are friends again, but will they be there for each other if their dark secrets come to light?

Check out the trailer!

I'm so excited about this show! It's going to be my fave guilty pleasure of the summer, I can already tell. The books are so addictive!

Good luck with the game! It sounds super involved, like a massive scavenger hunt.

Man that sounds so cool! They asked me to be part of the Secret Keepers but I replied too late to the email and they were full. Sigh-I must live vicariously through you. Im sooooo excited for the show tomorrow--Im going to be recapping it and doing a giveaway :-) Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the premiere!

Wow! this show is totally new to me. But how cool that you got to be involved in some of the promotion. And it looks fantastic. I don't watch much TV at all, but I'll try to tune in to see this one. Good luck with the game!
