Written by Mark Kruger and Tom Ryan, the gripping and suspenseful new drama series takes place the year after the notorious Catalog Killer murdered four victims before disappearing. Like everyone else left in the murderous wake, a teen tries desperately to leave that horrible summer in the past, which is easier said than done since his best friend was the murderer’s final victim. Yet, when a cryptic message turns up one day, the search for the killer reignites ―and may not be for a random drifter after all. In Keep This to Yourself, no one, ― not friends, neighbors, or even the sexy stranger with a connection to the case, ― is beyond suspicion. In addition to Valderrama and Bayer, WV Entertainment’s Kaitlin Saltzman and writers Kruger and Ryan will also executive produce.
