Helen Slater

Helen Slater has been cast in ABC Family pilot THE LYING GAME, EW.com is reporting.

Slater is probably best known for playing blonde bombshell Supergirl in the 1984 movie of the same name. She’s had a steady stream of guest starring spots over the years, including recent appearances in CSI: NY, Gigantic, and Smallville – where she played Lara-El, the mother of Superman himself.

The Lying Game is based on the book of the same name by Sara Shepard. The plot resolves around a teenage girl who’s killed and the long-lost twin sister who takes over the dead girl’s life to try and find her murderer. This isn’t the first Shepard novel to be adapted for television; a TV series based on her Pretty Little Liars novels is currently airing on ABC Family.
