A new television series premiering tonight: Wednesday January 21st on FOX@9pm
From writer Samuel Baum “The Evidence” and the executive producers of “24” and “Arrested Development” (only the best show ever) comes LIE TO ME. A drama series inspired by a real-life specialist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body, and voice to expose the truth in criminal investigations.
When you scratch your chin, wring your hands, wrinkle your nose, or swallow too much, DR. CAL LIGHTMAN (Tim Roth: “The Incredible Hulk” and “Reservoir Dogs”) knows you’re lying. He doesn’t just think so, he knows so, because he’s taken his exceptional skills of observation to become the foremost deception expert in the country. Being a human lie detector, Cal can uncover the deepest secrets and crack the hardest cases. More accurate than any polygraph test, he knows when those in front of him are being less than forthcoming, be they family, friends, or complete strangers.
Cal heads up a private agency contracted by the FBI, local police, law firms, corporations, and private individuals when they hit roadblocks in their searches for the truth.
LIE TO ME probes how people can deceive themselves just as easily as they deceive others, and explores the idea that there’s nothing more revealing than when we choose to tell the truth and when we decide to lie.
Well, I certainly loved Tim Roth as ‘Mr. Orange’ in the movie Reservoir Dogs. Therefore, I have deemed this show worthy of my time to at least check it out. I also really like the premise. I wish I had super powers of this nature. Would you love to be able to KNOW for SURE is someone is telling The Truth? As the mother of a teenager, I can usually tell when my son is lying to me. But sometimes, he is all too convincing. I have occasionally fallen victim to his tall tales. I plan on doing a follow up ‘Review’ after the premiere! Stay Tuned!
