IT'S NO LIE... FOX PICKS UP SECOND SEASON OF "LIE TO ME"

Shawn Ryan Joins Series as Executive Producer/Show-Runner

Season Finale Guest-Starring Mekhi Phifer and Jennifer Beals Airs Wednesday, May 13, on FOX

FOX has renewed LIE TO ME � one of the season's top new series among Adults 18-49 � for a second season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company. In addition, Shawn Ryan, creator and executive producer of "The Shield," joins the series as an executive producer and show-runner.

"LIE TO ME came out strong, built a solid audience throughout its run and promises to be one of our big assets next season and beyond," said Reilly. "We're incredibly excited to have Shawn on board to infuse LIE TO ME with even more creative energy next season."

From Imagine Television, LIE TO ME is the compelling drama series inspired by the scientific discoveries of Dr. Paul Ekman, a real-life specialist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body and voice to expose the truth and lies in criminal investigations. Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) heads a team of experts at The Lightman Group who assist federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with their most difficult cases.

In the explosive season finale episode airing Wednesday, May 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), a terrorist bombing outside of Washington, DC causes FBI Agent Ben Reynolds (guest star Mekhi Phifer) to call on The Lightman Group to help identify those responsible and prevent more attacks. The case takes a personal turn for one member of the team and begs the question of whether honesty is indeed the best policy. Zoe (guest star Jennifer Beals) helps her ex-husband Lightman with the investigation, and both are concerned about their daughter's safety.

Brian Grazer, David Nevins, Sam Baum and Shawn Ryan serve as executive producers on the series which stars Tim Roth, Kelli Williams, Brendan Hines and Monica Raymund. The series is produced by Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television.
