A teaser trailer for season five of Showtime’s critically acclaimed comedy series House of Lies has arrived along with a new poster for the upcoming season. Showtime’s set an April 10, 2016 premiere date for the fifth season starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell. The cast also features Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Donis Leonard Jr and Glynn Turman. Guest stars for season five will include Wanda Skyes, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, John Cho, Donald Faison, Keegan-Michael Key, Ken Marino, and Nicky Whelan. The fifth season of House of Lies marks the first time an American scripted series has shot episodes in Cuba since diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States were restored.
House of Lies was created by Matthew Carnahan who also executive produces along with Cheadle, Jessika Borsiczky, and David Walpert.
The Plot: No longer content with fleecing big-money clients, Marty (Cheadle) is upping the stakes in a highly calculated winner-take-all power play that will land him and the Pod – Jeannie (Bell), Clyde (Schwartz) and Doug (Lawson) – in Cuba. To the victor go all the spoils. Business is booming but, on the home front, he’s juggling a new baby daughter, teenage son Roscoe (Leonard Jr.) and Jeremiah (Turman), who has a new girlfriend, Rita (Sykes).
