Tim Roth Can 'Lie to Me" Any Day

Tim RothThe new show Lie to Me has officially been ordered by Fox and I for one can not wait to see Tim Roth every week on the small screen.

What's it about?  Cal Lightman (Roth's character) runs a private agency contracted by all levels of law enforcement, corporations and citizens to help out when they hit a stumbling block.  I'm assuming somewhat reminiscent of Burn Notice without the burn?

Due for a mid season premiere, the pilot is said to have been one of Fox's "highest-testing pilots ever." and execs already believe it will meet with the success of House.  So much so that the two might be paired up.

"It has the commercial potential to be a franchise where you can tell episodic stories for five to six seasons, while creatively it has real integrity and a fresh hook that are hard to come by in a crime show," Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said.

This sounds great! I don't remember ever reading so much advance positivity about a mid-season series before. I hope it lives up to the hype. But TIM ROTH! Hooray!
