Season Premieres Sunday, April 10 at 9 PM ET/PT on Showtime
The series stars Don Cheadle, in his Golden Globe®-winning and Emmy®-nominated role as Marty Kaan, a man with a singular focus – ascending from millionaire mogul to global dominator. This season, House of Lies is Havana-bound, marking the first time an American scripted series has been filmed in the country since the U.S. and Cuba restored diplomatic relations last summer.
No longer content with fleecing big-money clients, Marty (Cheadle) is upping the stakes in a highly calculated winner-take-all power play that will land him and the Pod – Jeannie (Kristen Bell), Clyde (Emmy winner Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson) – in Cuba. To the victor go all the spoils. 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 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 (The Cosby Show), John Cho (Star Trek), Donald Faison (Scrubs), and Nicky Whelan (Matador, Hall Pass). The series is based on the popular tell-all book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn.
