<u>'House of Lies' Season One Trailer</u><br>
by Blair Marnell</p>

<p><i>This January, Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell take it to the 1 percent.</i></p>

<p>Beginning in January, Oscar nominated actor, Don Cheadle will make the leap to TV in Showtime's new series, "House of Lies."</p>

<p>Based upon Martin Kihn's book, "House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time;" the Showtime incarnation casts Cheadle as Marty Kaan, a ruthless and highly successful consultant willing to do anything to get his clients the results that they want.</p>

<p>Former "Veronica Mars" and "Heroes" star, Kristen Bell plays Jeannie Van Der Hooven, an up-and-coming Ivy league educated young woman at Marty's firm, with http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/talent/view/2641">Ben Schwartz</a> ("Parks and Recreation") as Marty's best friend, Clyde Oberholt and Josh Lawson as their associate, Doug Guggenheim.</p>

<p>The newly released "House of Lies" trailer from Showtime happily explains that Marty and his friends are using their consulting firm to "stick it to the 1 percent," as Cheadle shows off Marty's powers of pursuassion and Bell shows off Jeannie's butt to her colleagues.</p>

<p>Don't miss the premiere of "House of Lies" on Sunday, January 08, only on Showtime!</p>
