In true “A” style, ABC Family is sending fans on a scavenger hunt across the Internet to solve a mysterious riddle from the diabolical lead antagonist in the hit series “Pretty Little Liars,” which premieres for its third season Tuesday, June 5th (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT). The new “Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt” game is launching today at www.abcfamily.com/prettylittlepuzzlehunt with a sinister message from “A”: “I love games. Don’t you? But if you want a sneak peek of what the Liars are up to, you are going to have to play MY game…”

In the game, fans must find hidden rebus pieces scattered across popular websites and use them to unlock a secret password on ABCFamily.com/prettylittlepuzzlehunt. There will be new clues on the ABC Family web site every weekday beginning today, May 23, through May 31, 2012 (not including Memorial Day) that lead users to rebus pieces on participating web sites. At the end of the hunt (June 1), the pieces have to be arranged in the correct order to reveal “A’s” message and unlock the secret password to the exclusive clip. Only 250,000 passwords will be accepted so fans will have to be up for the challenge and finish the riddle quickly.

In the upcoming season premiere of “Pretty Little Liars,” Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are thrown back into turmoil after one shocking night in “It Happened ‘That Night’.” Fans can prepare for the return to Rosewood in an all-day marathon starting at 11:00 AM (ET/PT) and running up to the one-hour season premiere at 8:00 PM (ET/PT).

Pretty Little Liars – Music Video – Press release

ABC Family Debuts the World Premiere of Up and Coming “Dirty Shine” Sensation ZZ Ward’s First TRACK “Til The Casket Drops” In New “Pretty Little Liars” Music Video

In anticipation of the upcoming season premiere of original hit series “Pretty Little Liars,” Tuesday, June 5th (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT), ABC Family is debuting an “A” themed music video for “Til the Casket Drops,” the first song off the much anticipated new EP “Criminal” from rising star ZZ Ward. Fans can visit the Sound booth on ABCFamily.com to see the video beginning today. The song is also available for download and streaming for free for 24 hours.

ZZ recently made a splash with her free mixtape, Eleven Roses, on which she offers her interpretations of recent tracks by Freddie Gibbs, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Tyler, the Creator. Her signature style, dubbed “dirty shine,” is a combination of the bone-deep wail of old-fashioned blues crossed with the big-city gloss of cutting-edge hip-hop. It instantly made an impression. Among the accolades:

“2012’s Artists to Watch… I don’t know of any other blues singer bold enough to belt over the beat of Tyler the Creator’s ‘Yonkers.’” – Esquire.com

“Whether her bluesy belting is accompanied by hip-hop beats or, as here, [“Last Love Song”] a gently plucked acoustic guitar, the palpable heartbreak in her voice will raise goose bumps down your spine.’” – Marie Claire

“The chanteuse’s ‘dirty blues with beats’ sound has gathered its fair share of buzz and she seems to have the poise and the chops to become a star.”- San Francisco Bay Guardian

A tremendous array of artists are collaborating on ZZ’s forthcoming album including: Ryan Tedder, Pete Rock, Theron “Neff-U” Feemster, Ali Shaheed Muhammad (of A Tribe Called Quest), Ludwig Goransson, Blended Babies and Fitz (of L.A.’s Fitz and the Tantrums), while her four song EP, Criminal, is now available on iTunes.

In the upcoming season premiere of “Pretty Little Liars,” Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are thrown back into turmoil after one shocking night in “It Happened ‘That Night’. Fans can prepare for the return to Rosewood in an all-day marathon starting at 11:00 AM (ET/PT) and running up to the one-hour season premiere at 8:00 PM (ET/PT). See the world premiere of the season three trailer of “Pretty Little Liars” only on ABCFamily.com starting on May 7th.
