Second, beginning this Sunday, February 2nd at 10pm ET/PT, multi-hyphenate Tip "T.I." Harris Jr. and Mekhi Phifer join the third season of the hit Showtime comedy series House Of Lies. The duo will be featured in a season-long arc as childhood friends-turned-moguls Lukas Frye (T.I.) and Dre (Phifer) who hire Marty (Don Cheadle) to help expand their business empire.

The episode marks series star and executive producer Don Cheadle's directorial debut.
