Cast members from the critically acclaimed series “The Shield,” including Catherine Dent, Kenny Johnson, David Marciano, Benito Martinez, Cathy Cahlin Ryan and David Rees Snell, will reunite for an upcoming episode of LIE TO ME airing this spring on FOX. LIE TO ME is executive-produced by Shawn Ryan, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series on “The Shield.”
In the “Pied Piper” episode, DR. CAL LIGHTMAN (Tim Roth) is a witness at the execution of JASON WILKIE (Marciano), a prisoner he helped convict in the murder of a child 17 years ago. When the victim’s aunt and uncle, FAYE SHERIDAN (Dent) and CHARLIE SHERIDAN (Martinez), are targeted again, Lightman must face the possibility he sent an innocent man to his death. Determined to uncover the truth, Lightman turns to MICHAEL WILKIE (Snell), Jason’s younger brother, and BETH LANSFORD (Ryan), Jason’s ex-girlfriend, for more information on what may have happened to 8-year-old Rex Sheridan. The pair lead Lightman to MALCOLM HESSLER (Johnson), a photographer who becomes the key suspect in the case.
LIE TO ME is the compelling drama series inspired by the scientific discoveries of a real-life psychologist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body and voice to expose the truth and lies in criminal investigations. Dr. Cal Lightman heads a team of experts who assist federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with their most difficult cases. The series also stars Kelli Williams, Monica Raymund, Brendan Hines, Mekhi Phifer and Hayley McFarland.
Created by Samuel Baum, LIE TO ME is executive-produced by Shawn Ryan, Brian Grazer, David Nevins, Daniel Voll, Samuel Baum, Dan Sackheim, Vahan Moosekian, Liz Craft and Sarah Fain. Dr. Paul Ekman serves as scientific consultant. The series is produced by Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television.
