House Of Lies

Its first season isn't even over yet, but, after reported strong early ratings numbers, the Showtime Network has renewed Don Cheadle's new dark comedy TV series House Of Lies, which stars Cheadle as Marty, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant who will use any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information that they want.

The series, which Showtime head David Nevins says is "clearly resonating with audiences as evidenced by... steady growth," will be returning for a second season!

Congrats to Don! You officially have a TV hit on your hands; maybe this'll translate to the big screen, and his Miles Davis project will finally get the backing it needs to go into production.

In House Of LiesHeroes alum, Dawn Olivieri, plays Monica, Marty's "crazy, pill-popping ex-wife and biggest professional competition, as her consulting firm is No.1, compared to Marty's No. 2."

Glynn Turman, last seen in Burlesque and Takers, co-stars, playing Cheadle's father.

Don recently signed a 1-year first-look deal with Showtime, under which he and his producing partners will develop and executive produce series projects for the cable channel.
