LOS ANGELES, CA - (February 15, 2012) - Fans of the hit SHOWTIME comedy series HOUSE OF LIES will get a chance to catch up on the season so far with a special marathon. On Sunday, February 26th, the first seven half-hour episodes of the season will air back-to-back beginning at 8:00 PM (ET/PT).

HOUSE OF LIES, starring Academy Award(R) nominee Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, is a timely, dark comedy that dives head first into the shark tank known as corporate America. Marty Kaan (Cheadle) is the big-money earner at Galweather & Stearn, along with his hot, young team - The Pod, of big-balling power players - Jeannie (Bell), Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). Marty and The Pod's work life is all first-class, top-shelf, black Am Ex, the best suites at the nicest hotels. 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. Dawn Olivieri, Donis Leonard Jr. and Glynn Turman also star. 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).
