Sky Atlantic has picked up broadcast rights for House of Lies...
House of Lies is a new dark comedy series about all the screwed up ways big business is practiced these days. The series is based on the hit tell-all book from best-selling author Martin Kihn (House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time). The half-hour comedy series stars Golden Globe winner and Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy nominee Don Cheadle (Ocean's Twelve, Crash, Hotel Rwanda) as Marty Kaan, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his way with his clients.
Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) also stars as Jeannie Van Der Hooven, a razor-sharp, Ivy League graduate who works at Marty's firm. Marty's life is further complicated by his acerbic ex-wife Monica (Dawn Olivieri, The Vampire Diaries), psychoanalyst father Jeremiah (Emmy award winner Glynn Turman, In Treatment) and young son Roscoe (newcomer Donis Leonard Jr.)
House of Lies also stars Emmy® award winner Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Clyde, a young member of Marty’s team and a major suck up, and Josh Lawson (The Wedding Party) as Doug, a brilliant, Harvard-educated addition to the team.
House of Lies is coming to Sky Atlantic and Sky Atlantic HD this summer.
