Charming, fast talking Marty Kaan and his crack team of MBA-toting management consultants are playing America’s 1 percent for everything they’ve got. They put the con in consulting as they charm smug, unsuspecting corporate fat cats into closing huge deals, and spending a fortune for their services. Twisting the facts, spinning the numbers, and spouting just enough business school jargon to dazzle the clients, there’s no end to what this crew won’t do to and for each other, while laughing all the way to the bank. Starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, nothing is sacred in HOUSE OF LIES, a hilarious, irreverent send-up of corporate America today. Based on the book “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time” by Martin Kihn.

Charming, fast-talking consultant Marty Kaan and his MBA-toting colleagues charm smug, unsuspecting corporate fat cats into closing deals while spending a fortune for their services. Kaan isn’t above using any means — or person — necessary to get what he wants. Members of his team are razor-sharp Jeannie van der Hooven, an Ivy Leaague alumna; lackadaisical Clyde Oberholt, who’s a lady’s man; and math guru Doug Guggenheim, who’s awkward with women. Marty lives with his psychoanalyst father, son Roscoe and, as of Season 5, his baby daughter.
