Kristen Bell may be coming back to series TV.

The Veronica Mars and Heroes star has joined a Showtime pilot. Bell has joined the cast of the network’s comedy project House of Lies, starring Don Cheadle.

The project is based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time … which pretty much serves as an effective story description too.

Cheadle is the cutthroat consultant who uses any means necessary to get his clients the information they want, while Bell is a smart, Ivy-League grad who works at his firm.
