Executive Producer
Pretty Little Liars & Ravenswood

As head writer, show-runner and executive producer, I. Marlene King is the driving force behind the breakout hit ABC Family drama “Pretty Little Liars,” based on the popular young-adult book series about a high school clique whose missing leader ends up dead and comes back to haunt them via locker-room notes, IMs, and text messages. One of the most viral TV shows ever, “Liars” draws an average of 3.8 million viewers each week and has continued to cultivate a colossal social media footprint – there have been 8.7 million tweets about the series in one year. This October, King expands her brand with the spinoff series “Ravenswood,” which centers on five strangers connected by a fatal curse. She also wrote the feature film “Just My Luck,” starring Lindsay Lohan, and was a writer on the successful telefilm “If These Walls Could Talk,” starring Cher, Anne Heche and Jada Pinkett Smith.
