House of Lies GETS PICKED UP TO SERIES!

In unbelievably exciting news, House of Lies- the comedy pilot I’m in alongside Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Josh Lawson and a slew of other amazing actors, has been picked up for a full season on Showtime! Everyone involved in this show- the cast, producers, director, writer and executives are so incredibly talented and so much fun to be around, I cannot wait to get started on the series! I truly believe this show is going to be special, can’t wait for everyone to see it. Here’s the first photo and press release from Showtime-

From the cable network’s press release: 

HOUSE OF LIES is a half-hour comedy created, written and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan from the hit tell-all book “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn.” The new comedy is a scathing look at a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm. Don Cheadle stars as Marty, a highly-successful and cutthroat consultant who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his way with and for his clients.  Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) will play Jeannie Van Der Hooven, a razor-sharp, Ivy-League graduate who works at Marty’s firm. Co-stars include noted comedian Ben Schwartz (Undercovers) and Josh Lawson (Romantically Challenged) as Marty’s corporate team members; Dawn Olivieri (Heroes) as Marty’s acerbic ex-wife; the legendary Glynn Turman (In Treatment) as his psychoanalyst father; and Donis Leonard Jr. (The Fresh Beat Band) as Marty’s young son. Jessika Borsiczky (Flash Forward) will serve as executive producer, and Emmy winner Stephen Hopkins (Californication, 24)  directs and executive produces.
