House of Lies Season 5 to premiere on April 10
In addition to announced the Penny Dreadful Season Three premiere date, Showtime today revealed that House of Lies Season 5 will begin on Sunday, April 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The announcements were made today Showtime Networks President and CEO David Nevins, as part of the Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour. Both series, which are currently in production, will premiere on-air, on demand and over the internet.
Marking the first time an American scripted series will be shot in the country since the U.S. and Cuba restored diplomatic relations last summer, the cast and crew of House of Lies Season 5 are currently in Havana, Cuba, shooting one episode of the new season. Marty (series star and executive producer Don Cheadle) is now a man with a singular focus – ascending from millionaire mogul to global dominator. He’s upping the stakes in a highly calculated winner-take-all power play with the Pod – Jeannie (Kristen Bell), Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). Business is booming but, on the home front, he’s juggling a new baby daughter, teenage son Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.) and Jeremiah (Glynn Turman), who has a new girlfriend, Rita (guest star Emmy winner Wanda Sykes).
Additional guest stars for the fifth season include Emmy nominee Keegan-Michael Key (“Key & Peele”), Emmy nominee Ken Marino (“Childrens Hospital”), Emmy nominee Malcolm-Jamal Warner (“Major Crimes”), John Cho (Star Trek), Donald Faison (“Scrubs”), and Nicky Whelan (“Matador,” “Franklin & Bash”).
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 Season 5 stars Cheadle in his four-time Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning performance as Marty Kaan. Produced by Showtime, it is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Don Cheadle and David Walpert return as executive producers for season five. The Cuba shoot is being done in compliance with the U.S. Department of Treasury pursuant to an Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) license following all appropriate U.S. laws.
