What is the premise for this new show?  Lies.

The average person tells three lies in ten minutes of conversation.

From writer Samuel Baum (The Evidence) and the executive producers of 24 and Arrested Development comes Lie To Me, a compelling new 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 both the truth and lies in criminal investigations.

Fox has transformed the findings of Dr. Ekman into their latest drama series.


Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth, The Incredible Hulk, Reservoir Dogs) can detect the truth by analyzing a person's face, body, voice and speech. When someone shrugs his shoulder, rotates his hand or raises his lower lip, Dr.  Lightman knows he's lying.

By analyzing facial expressions, he can read feelings - from hidden resentment to sexual attraction to jealousy. But as Lightman well knows, his scientific ability is both a blessing and a curse in his personal life, where family and friends deceive each other as readily as criminals and strangers do.

Dr. Lightman is the world's leading deception expert, a scientist who studies facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover not only if you are lying but why.

The good doctor heads a team of experts at The Lightman Group who assist federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with their most difficult cases.

Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams, The Practice) is a gifted psychologist and Lightman's professional partner who brings balance to the partnership by looking at the bigger picture while Lightman focuses on the details. He needs her guidance and insight into human behavior, whether he knows it or not.

Eli Loker (Brendan Hines, Terminator:  The Sarah Conner Chronicles) is Lightman's lead researcher, who is so uncomfortable with the human tendency to lie that he's decided to practice what he calls "radical honesty."  Loker says everything on his mind at all times and often pays the price.

Ria Torres (Monica Raymund, Law & Order: SVU) is the newest member of the agency, and one of the few "naturals" in the field of deception detection. She has a raw, untrained ability to read people that makes her a force to be reckoned with.

Samuel Baum, Brian Grazer, David Nevins and Steven Maeda serve as executive producers on the series, which is produced by Imagine Television and 20th Century Fox Television. Robert Schwentke directed the pilot.

Check out this thrilling new series Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT if you enjoy solving mysteries and dramas based on true life experiences.

Daily Hair Tip
Whenever possible limit or avoid using a brush on curly tresses. Instead use a widetooth pick or comb with "hair friendly" edges that won't rip or tear fragile curls.
