Don Cheadle's new dark comedy TV series for the Showtime network, titled House Of Lies (based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn) 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.
Showtime picked up the pilot and ordered 12 episodes of the series which will make its
official debut on the network on Sunday, January 8th, 2012, at 10PM.
Heroes 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."
And, Glynn Turman, last seen in Burlesque and Takers, will co-star, 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.
While we wait to see what other tricks he has up his sleeve, here's the 3rd trailer for House Of Lies, which shows much more footage than the previous 2 teasers.
