DESCRIPTION: (from The CW's press release) Johnny Miller was a happy, well-adjusted 15-year-old with good grades and a roomful of sports trophies until the terrible night a year ago that his father committed suicide. Now, Johnny lives in the surreal, sun-drenched city of Palm Springs with his mother and her new husband. On the outside, Palm Springs is a shimmering paradise of resorts, swimming pools, golf courses and country clubs. But as Johnny learns the secrets that lie just beneath the surface of this seemingly typical neighborhood, he and his family are forced to ask the question: how well do you really know the people who live right next door? HIDDEN PALMS stars Michael Cassidy as Cliff Wiatt, Taylor Handley as Johnny Miller, Amber Heard as Greta, Sharon Lawrence as Tess Wiatt, D.W. Moffet as Bob Hardy, Gail O'Grady as Karen Hardy, Ellary Porterfield as Liza Witter, and Cheryl White as Helen Witter. The CW presents a Lionsgate Television production in association with Outerbanks Entertainment with executive producers Kevin Williamson ("Dawson's Creek," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "Scream 1, 2 and 3") and Scott Winant ("Huff," "My So-Called Life").
