“House of Lies” finds promising identity

“House of Lies” is Matthew Carnahan’s latest comedy on Showtime, based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn. Currently in its third season, the show stars Don Cheadle as Marty Kaan, a big-time management consultant. Kaan and his team, played by Kirsten Bell, Josh Lawson and Ben Schwartz, solve a company’s latest problem every week, brashly offering their two cents on how their clients can make even more money by using just about every trick to get the information clients want.
