Kristen Bell and House of Lies a Go at Showtime
The people at Showtime must like what they see with the House of Lies pilot because TVLine brings word that the show has received a 12-episode order.
The new Showtime series is based on the book How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time, and stars Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), Ben Schwartz (Undercovers), Josh Lawson (Romantically Challenged), Dawn Olivieri (Heroes), and Glynn Turman (In Treatment).
Cheadle plays aggressive consultant Marty, who will do just about anything to get his clients the info they want. His lousy moral compass must be good for something because his firm’s success record is ranked as second best. Interestingly enough, the firm that’s actually considered the best is the one being run by his ex-wife (Olivieri), who might just be a little more cutthroat than her former hubby.
Kristen Bell’s Jeannie van der Hooven fits right in with Marty’s business as a “razor-sharp, Ivy-League graduate;” Schwartz and Lawson round out the staff.
There isn’t a whole lot of info on House of Lies, but the little we do know makes it sound like a dark comedy that will have plenty of great situations.
