Preview by Jack Foley
LIE To Me is the compelling new drama series from writer, Samuel Baum (The Evidence) and the producers of the popular and stylish 24.
Academy Award nominee Tim Roth plays Dr Lightman, who leads a team of deception experts alongside law enforcement and government agencies to expose the truth behind the lies.
Lie to Me Season 1 is available to own on a 4-disc DVD box-set from September 14, 2009 courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Inspired by real-life behavioral specialist Dr Paul Elkman, this gripping new show follows the life of Dr. Cal Lightman (Roth), the world’s leading Deception Expert who can detect the truth by analysing a person’s face, body, voice and speech. He is not only able to tell if you are lying… but why.
Having this scientific ability is both a blessing as well as a curse in his family life, as friends and family can deceive each other as readily as criminals and strangers do.
Lightman and his team are effectively human polygraph machines, and no lie can be hidden from them. Headed by Dr Lightman and his gifted psychologist partner, Dr Gillian Foster (Kelly Williams), the group brings balance to the overall picture when in question.
Along with the lie-detecting skills of the lead researcher Eli Locker (Brendan Hines) and Ria Torres, a natural at uncovering the truth (Monica Raymond) they are an invincible team.
See the truth and be prepared for the ultimate of interrogations as the original and captivating first 13 episodes of Lie to Me Season 1 come to DVD on September 14.
