Fall TV Preview: Lie to Me

Returning drama, 8-9PM, Fox

Posted on

Lightman (Tim Roth) and Foster’s (Kelli Williams) will-they-or-won’t-they relationship is tested when Wallowski (Monique Gabriela Curnen), the bent cop from season 2’s finale, teams up with the Lightman Group and drives a wedge between the pair. Also incoming: two grad students (one is played by Jericho’s Shoshannah Stern) hired by Lightman to assist with his second book. Other shifts include the exits of exec producer Shawn Ryan and costar Mekhi Phifer, whose role as FBI agent Ben Reynolds has been nixed as the Group decides to sever ties with the FBI. New assignments will involve everything from a beauty pageant to a bank robbery that Lightman literally stumbles into. ”The job doesn’t walk into Lightman’s office; Lightman walks into the job,” says exec producer David Graziano. ”That’s a paradigm we want to explore throughout the season.” NOV. 10
