House of Lies
Showtime's upcoming series House of Lies is debuting next month, but we've got the first episode now!
The dark comedy stars Don Cheadle as Marty Kaan, a management consultant who will stop at nothing to get business deals done. Kaan's team, called "The Pod," consists of Jeannie Van Der Hooven, a razor-sharp, Ivy League grad (Kristen Bell); Clyde Oberhalt, a brown-nosing and womanizing consultant (Ben Schwartz); and Doug Guggenheim, a brilliant math geek (Josh Lawson). Dawn Olivieri rounds out the cast as Marty's pill-popping ex-wife and mother of his child. She's also his company's biggest rival.

Showtime's raunchy comedy House of Lies will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 8, between the returns of Shameless and Californication, Showtime's president of entertainment announced to TV critics during fall previews Thursday.
"We're not an advertiser environment, so we have the ability to push the limits," David Nevins said. "Beneath [the show]'s glossy, fancy prettiness is a really subversive show. It's an R-rated comedy that's really addictive in a way that no one else can get away with."
Michael Rady, Nick Stahl
Kristen Bell is getting not one, but two love interests for her latest foray into series TV.
