The Story

Full of intrigue, unexpected plot twists, uncovered secrets and enough double crossing and action to leave you dizzy and at the edge of your seat, Revenge burst onto the scene this year with a bang. Starring Emily VanCamp (Everwood, Brothers and Sisters) as Amanda Clarke, a girl who's life is ruined as child when her unsuspecting father is framed for a horrendous crime by his high society neighbors and so-called friends in the Hamptons. After being insitutionalized her whole childhood, Amanda learns the truth about her father and sets out to destory the people whochanged her life forever - one cocktail party at a time.

Disguising herself as an heiress named Emily Thorne with the help of her awkward yet rich tech-savy friend Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann), Amanda reenters life in the Hamptons and pits herself against The Graysons and the Hamptons high society set, bringing them down one by one.

The cast also includes Golden Globe Award Winner Madeleine Stowe, Josh Bowman (Make it or Break it), Connor Paolo (Gossip Girl).
