AnnaLynne McCord (90210, American Heiress) has booked a recurring role on the second season of ABC’s Secrets & Lies.

Season 2 of the anthology crime drama series picks up with detective Andrea Cornell (Juliette Lewis) investigating a new crime, the murder of Eric Warner’s (Michael Ealy) wife. McCord will play Melanie Warner, the outspoken, slightly inappropriate housewife of Patrick Warner, the third child of private equity magnate, John Warner. Although she thought she finally arrived when she married Patrick, her victory was short-lived as it became clear the Warner family would never fully accept her into the fold.

Production on Season 2 begins next week in Los Angeles. McCord is repped by Paradigm, John Carrabino Management and attorney Todd Rubenstein.
