Get the cigars ready: Marty Kaan is headed to Cuba.

House of Lieshas won the race to be the first American scripted show to shoot on the Caribbean island after the restoration of diplomatic relations last summer that ended more than 50 years of Cold War shade.

Set to take place in and around Havana, the fifth season episode will air in 2016. In it, Kaan, played by Don Cheadle, is looking to go from mogul to big dog global alpha male in a super calculated power move that lands him and his pod of associates - Jeannie (Kristen Bell), Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson) - in Havana.

"This historic trip to Cuba is definitely Kaan & Associates' biggest and wildest adventure yet," Cheadle said in a press release. "It's sure to be one for the record books, for both our characters and for our cast and crew."
