[via press release from Showtime]

LISA EDELSTEIN MOVES FROM ONE HOUSE TO ANOTHER HOUSE GUEST STARRING IN "HOUSE OF LIES" PREMIERING SUNDAY, JANUARY 13 ON SHOWTIME(R)

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 28, 2012) - Lisa Edelstein will guest star in two episodes of the hit comedy series HOUSE OF LIES as Brynn, a smart and sexy political consultant whom Marty (Don Cheadle) encounters on one of his assignments. The series returns for a second season on Sunday, January 13th at 10 PM (ET/PT) on SHOWTIME. HOUSE OF LIES, which also stars Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson, is currently in production in Los Angeles.

Lisa Edelstein has had many memorable roles on television including her first role as Lisa E on MTV's Awake on the Wild Side and her most recent role as Dr. Lisa Cuddy on the hit Fox medical drama House, which garnered her the People's Choice Award for "Favorite TV Actress." She has since transitioned into a memorable arc on The Good Wife and guest starred on Elementary. Additional television credits include The West Wing, Ally McBeal, Relativity, Family Law and The Practice. She was also seen on Leap of Faith and had guest turns on Seinfeld, Without A Trace, Frasier, Felicity, and ER. Edelstein also works extensively in the realm of voiceover, most recently on Airbender: Legend of Korra, as well as the character of Mercy Graves on the animated Superman and Justice League series, and memorable guest spots on American Dad and King of the Hill. Edelstein's feature films include Keeping the Faith, What Women Want, Daddy Day Care and As Good As It Gets, as well as the more dramatic SHOWTIME television film, Fathers and Sons. After honing her craft at the prestigious NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Edelstein performed in numerous off and off-off Broadway productions, including the AIDS-related musical, Positive Me, which she authored, composed, and performed. In fact, Common Ground recently bestowed her with an honor on behalf of her efforts to further awareness. Lisa resides in Los Angeles in a century-old home with her rescue dogs. She volunteers her time by working with a variety of charity organizations, namely Best Friend Animal Sanctuary, Save the Children, and Planned Parenthood.

HOUSE OF LIES is a timely comedy that dives head-first into the shark tank known as corporate America. Marty is the big-money earner at Galweather Stearn, who commands a hot, young team known as The Pod: Jeannie (Kristen Bell), Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). Marty and The Pod's work life revolves around first-class travel, top-shelf liquor and anything they can charge the client on a black Am Ex. Marty is the ultimate power player and under his direction, this ruthless, pull-no-punches team is here to beat the corporate suckers at their own game - and they're loving every minute of it. This season, The Pod - especially Marty and Jeannie - must deal with the fall-out from the big merger showdown. On the home front, Marty is thrown when Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.) decides to move in with his unbalanced mother, Monica (Dawn Olivieri). The series is based on the hit tell-all book from best-selling author Martin Kihn (House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time). Produced by SHOWTIME, HOUSE OF LIES is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Stephen Hopkins and Don Cheadle also serve as executive producers.
