We all have secrets, and some of them, we never share. But curiously, in an era in which scores of people hide behind the cloak of anonymity to conduct secret lives (with varying degrees of success) the same technology is inspiring others to reveal all, in a bid to lead more authentic lives. This U.S. series features 10 individuals, each with a secret they are determined to bring into the light – on a television show. From the stand-up comic who is battling anxiety to the tough-as-nails demolition man who is afraid of the vulnerability his secret presents, each cast member is given the opportunity to tell his or her own story and reveal their secrets their own way.
