Don Cheadle’s Directorial Debut
Sunday, February 2nd at 10pm ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, CA – (January 28, 2014) – Beginning this Sunday, February 2nd at 10pm ET/PT, Grammy-winning multi-hyphenate Tip “T.I.” Harris Jr. (Boss) and Mekhi Phifer (Lie to Me) 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 (Tip “T.I.” Harris Jr.) and Dre (Mekhi Phifer) who hire Marty (Don Cheadle) to help expand their business empire. They each have very different ideas about the future of their business interests and Marty gets stuck in the middle. The episode marks series star and executive producer Don Cheadle’s directorial debut.
HOUSE OF LIES is the edgy, provocative hit SHOWTIME comedy series starring Don Cheadle (Iron Man 3) in his twice Emmy®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning performance as elite consultant Marty Kaan, a man with a single-minded pursuit: power. This quest is eternally complicated at work by his relationships with his “Pod” of co-workers: sexy, whip-smart protégé and co-conspirator Jeannie (Kristen Bell) and underlings Clyde (Emmy winner Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). At home, he’s forced to juggle unwanted advice from his psychoanalyst father Jeremiah (Emmy winner Glynn Turman), drama from his demented ex-wife Monica (Dawn Olivieri), all while being a loving father to his gender-fluid teenage son Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.). The series is based on the hit tell-all book from best-selling author Martin Kihn (House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time). Produced by SHOWTIME, HOUSE OF LIES is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Stephen Hopkins, Don Cheadle and David Walpert also serve as executive producers.
