Showtime to Air Claire Danes, Kristen Bell-Led Series
It's Showtime for Kristen Bell and Claire Danes.
Bell and Oscar nominee Don Cheadle will headline Lies, based on Martin Kihn’s hit tell-all book How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time.
The show revolves around dueling corporate consulting firms. Bell plays Jeannie, a Brown grad who reluctantly finds herself attracted to co-worker Marty (Cheadle).
Homeland, meanwhile, is a thriller about a CIA officer (Danes) convinced that intel leading to the rescue of a presumed-dead U.S. soldier (Damian Lewis) was a setup.
She feels it may be connected to an Al Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil. Mandy Patinkin also stars as a veteran CIA Division Chief who mentors her.
