House of Lies is an American comedy television series created by Matthew Carnahan and based on the book, House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time written by Martin Kihn, a former consultant, which follows a group of management consultants who stop at nothing to get business deals done, even if it calls for extremes.
House of Lies, starring Kristen Bell and Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle, is a timely, dark comedy that dives head first into the shark tank known as corporate America.
Marty Kaan (Cheadle) is the big-money earner at Galweather & Stearn, along with his hot, young team - The Pod, of big-balling power players - Jeannie (Bell), Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson).
Marty and The Pod's work life is all first-class, top-shelf, black Am Ex, the best suites at the nicest hotels.
Marty is the ultimate power player and under his direction, this ruthless, pull-no-punches team is here to beat the corporate suckers at their own game - and they're loving every minute of it.
Dawn Olivieri, Donis Leonard, Jr. and Glynn Turman also star. 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 and Don Cheadle also serve as executive producers.
