Michael Ealy stars in Secrets and Lies premiering Sunday, September 25th on ABC. The 10-episode crime thriller follows the story of Eric Warner, a successful heir to his parents equity firm. He’s seemingly living the perfect life until his wife is found murdered and he’s the prime suspect.
He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his role, weighs in on the unrest in Charlotte and his involvement in the African American Smithsonian
“This is the second season. The first season was a whole entirely different case. The show starts off with the murder of his wife. You spend most of the season trying to find out if he did it. You don’t know the outcome and you’ll never guess it, but it’s pretty intense.”
On the protests in Charlotte:
“Unfortunately it’s to be expected. It’s a lot of frustration and a lot of anger, and rightly so. I don’t know if rioting is ever the answer, but I feel like this can’t continue without change. Sometimes things have to be worse before things get better.”
