House of Lies Welcomes Mary McCormack and Alicia Witt

ON

Mary McCormack (“In Plain Sight”) has signed on as guest star on the fourth season of the hit Showtime comedy series “House of Lies.” McCormack will play Denna Altshuler, a tough, highly successful white knight investor who Marty (series star and executive producer Don Cheadle) recruits to help save Kaan & Associates.

Alicia Witt (“Justified”) will also guest star as Maya Lindholm, a brilliant engineer who comes to Marty’s rescue when he’s in a bind. McCormack and Witt join previously announced guest stars Larenz Tate (Rush), who returns as Marty’s brother Malcolm, and Demetri Martin (“The Daily Show with John Stewart”) and Valorie Curry (“The Following”).

Production on “House of Lies” started last month for a Sunday, January 11th at 10 p.m. ET/PT premiere on the network.

“House of Lies” is the hit half-hour comedy series from the hit tell-all book “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time” by Martin Kihn. “House of Lies” stars Cheadle (Iron Man 3) in his three-time Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning performance. Kristen Bell (Frozen, “Veronica Mars”) plays his razor-sharp partner, along with Emmy winner Ben Schwartz (This is Where I Leave You); Josh Lawson (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues); Emmy winner Glynn Turman (“In Treatment”); and Donis Leonard Jr. (“Criminal Minds”).

We last left a despondent Marty alone in the desert after a cataclysmic double-cross by Jeannie (Bell) and a visit by the Feds. This season, Marty’s brief stint in white collar prison leaves Jeannie to pick up the pieces of the now tainted Kaan & Associates with Clyde (Schwartz) and Doug (Lawson). Client flight has decimated the bottom line, but Marty is now a man with a singular focus: winning, at any and all cost.

Produced by Showtime, “House of Lies” is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Don Cheadle and David Walpert return as executive producers for season four.
