This dark comedy produced by CBS, premiered Jan. 8 in U.S. channel Showtime and will soon come to Portugal, strengthening the provision of HD TV Series.
"House of Lies" offers a unique insight into the business world, a world in which even the powerful succumb to the schemes and lies of a special team.
In the series, Marty Kaan (Don Cheadle) is a man of charming appearance but lacking in remorse, who works at a consulting firm. Among its main clients are some of the most powerful companies in the world, the "filthy rich", those in 1% of the world population who pay fortunes by the "wise" advice of the consultant.
Marty`s goal is only one: Earn the most money with the business, nor that it has to distort the facts, confusing numbers and use the right amount of jargon, language characteristic of a professional group or socio-cultural, to confound the their customers.
When this happens, or when a technical term comes into play, "House of Lies" surprised to instantly stop the action. All around the character freezes, while it approaches the spectator and explains the meaning of concepts or situations typical of the business world. After that, the character returns to the argument.
The winding Marty Kaan is just a rival to its height. Best ... a rival: the tempestuous ex-wife Monica (Dawn Oliveri) also owns a consulting firm and considered the best in the business.
The working group is composed by Marty expert in psychology Jeannie (Kristen Bell of "Veronica Mars"), Doug (Josh Lawson) and Clyde (Ben Schwartz). At the personal level, Marty needs to deal with his father Jeremiah (Glynn Turman) and his son Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.), a teenager who begins to discover his homosexuality.
Adapted by Matthew Carnhan, "House of Lies" is based on the work of Martin Kihn "House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time". Something like: "How Consultants Steal Your Watch and told him the Hours."
"House of Lies" is a hilarious series, marked by rapid dialogue, not afraid to explore characters with values distorted and full of moral failings.
Coming Soon in HD TV Series, a series that will stay for the story. "House of Lies," a comedy that is coming to Portugal.
