Fall TV: Fox Renews Lie to Me, Sets Sights on Human Target and Sons of Tucson
Tim Roth and Kelli Williams, Lie to Me
Fox, which is set to announce its complete fall plan at its May 18 "upfront" presentation and just recently renewed Fringe, has proactively filled in a few more blanks.
The network on Tuesday ordered a second, 13-episode season of the midseason entry Lie to Me, starring Tim Roth and Kelli Williams.
Lie to Me will undergo one change for its sophomore run: Shawn Ryan is joining the show as executive producer and showrunner. Should The Unit get picked up, Ryan will juggle both shows — just as he once did with the CBS military drama and The Shield.
Fox also picked up two new series: Human Target, inspired by the DC Comics character and fronted by Mark Valley (speaking of Fringe), and Sons of Tucson, a comedy starring Reaper's Tyler Labine as a con man hired by two brothers to pose as their incarcerated pop.
