HOUSE OF LIES Set For Sunday, April 10th at 9 PM ET/PT And PENNY DREADFUL On Sunday, May 1st at 10 PM ET/PT Across All Platforms

LOS ANGELES, CA - January 12, 2016 - Today, SHOWTIME announced the spring premiere dates for two of its hit series: HOUSE OF LIES season five will air on Sunday, April 10th at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and the third season of PENNY DREADFUL will debut on Sunday, May 1st at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The network also released a first look at PENNY DREADFUL season three. To click and share, go to: https://youtu.be/s17fb7c6zwU. 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 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(R) winner Wanda Sykes). Additional guest stars for the fifth season include Emmy nominee Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Emmy nominee Ken Marino (Children's 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 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.

This season on PENNY DREADFUL, Tony(R) Award-winning star Patti LuPone (American Horror Story), who guest starred last season as the Cut-Wife, returns as a series regular in the new role of Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa (Eva Green) with an unconventional new approach. Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels) joins as a series regular as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton). The third season also adds Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Henry Jekyll (Shazad Latif). Other guest stars include Screen Actors Guild(R) Award nominee Christian Camargo (DEXTER(R), The Hurt Locker) as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa; Sam Barnett (2012, Jupiter Ascending) as Dr. Seward's mysterious young secretary; and Jessica Barden (The Outcast, Far from the Madding Crowd) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), and Perdita Weeks (THE TUDORS), as Catriona Hartdegan, a scholar with expert knowledge of the supernatural. Simon Russell Beale returns as Dr. Ferdinand Lyle. Rory Kinnear (as The Creature) and Harry Treadaway (as Dr. Frankenstein) also star. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar(R) nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street Productions. PENNY DREADFUL is a co-production with SHOWTIME and Sky.
