The ladies were joined on the cover by Episodes‘ Matt LeBlanc, House of Lies‘ Don Cheadle, and Showtime’s President of Entertainment, David Nevins.
“Showtime got taken seriously with Weeds, Dexter and Nurse Jackie; what I’ve done is challenge some of the formulas because we had gotten a little rigid in what we were doing,” David said.
“There needed to be some rebalancing. Because we’re a monthly expense in pay cable, you never want to have one or the other side of a household saying, ‘Why are we spending eight bucks a month?’” he added.
Kristen Bell meets up with Matt Bomer at the premiere of her new Showtime series, House of Lies, held at the AT&T Center on Wednesday (January 4) in Los Angeles.
The comedy doesn’t premiere until Sunday (January 8) but Showtime is giving viewers the chance to watch the entire first episode right now!
Here’s the official synopsis for the show, which also stars Don Cheadle, Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson: Charming, fast talking Marty Kaan and his crack team of MBA-toting management consultants are playing America’s 1 percent for everything they’ve got. They put the con in consulting as they charm smug, unsuspecting corporate fat cats into closing huge deals, and spending a fortune for their services. Twisting the facts, spinning the numbers, and spouting just enough business school jargon to dazzle the clients, there’s no end to what this crew won’t do to and for each other, while laughing all the way to the bank.
House of Lies officially premieres this Sunday, January 8, at 10 p.m. on Showtime. Check out the full first episode below – warning, though, it’s NSFW!
FYI: Kristen is wearing a Zuhair Murad dress at the premiere.
