Kristen Bell Returns to Television in Showtime’s HOUSE OF LIES

February 1, 2011 by  

Someone start the slow clap. Kristen Bell is returning to television. Showtime has just announced that the VERONICA MARS star has joined the cast of HOUSE OF LIES, a new half-hour dark comedy starring Don Cheadle.

According to Showtime, HOUSE OF LIES is a “subversive, scathing look at a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm. Cheadle will star as Marty, that highly successful, cutthroat consultant who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information they want. Bell will play Jeannie Van Der Hooven, a razor-sharp, Ivy-League graduate who works at Marty’s firm.

Bell joins the already cast Dawn Oliveri (HEROES), Josh Lawson (ROMANTICALLY CHALLENGED) and noted comedian Ben Schwartz (UNDERCOVERS) as Marty’s corporate team; the legendary Glynn Turman (IN TREATMENT) as Marty’s psychoanalyst father; and Donis Leonard Jr. (THE FRESH BEAT BAND) as Marty’s young son.” The series is based on the book “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time” by Martin Kihn.

Production for HOUSE OF LIES will kick off in February in New York and Los Angeles. The show was created and written by Matthew Carnahan who will also serve as Executive Producer. Emmy® winner Stephen Hopkins (CALIFORNICATION, 24) will direct the pilot.

Please let this be a huge hit because I need Kristen Bell on my television every week. Kristen is a far better actress than her movie choices would indicate, so it’s time to get her back to her roots and ruling the small screen once again.

I’m a sucker for anything starring K Bell so I know I’ll be tuning in…will you?
