Jennifer Beals is set to guest-star on LIE TO ME as Zoe Landau, Lightman’s (Tim Roth) ex-wife and Emily’s (Hayley McFarland) mother.

LIE TO ME, the No. 1 new show of the season among Adults 18-49, stars Tim Roth as Dr. Cal Lightman, the world’s leading deception expert who studies facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover not only if someone is lying, but why.
