Lie To Me Season 1 available on Blu-ray and DVD August 25‏th

TV News | Jun 25th, 2009

Lie to Me is picked up for another season so that warrants a viewing from me. I’ll check it out and see if I like this crime drama, starring Tim Roth. He’s a great actor and the premise of the show looks pretty cool. If the first season is good, then I’ll watch the second season.

The average person tells three lies in ten minutes of conversation. From writer Samuel Baum (“The Evidence”) and the executive producers of “24” and “Arrested Development” comes “Lie To Me,” a compelling drama series inspired by the scientific discoveries of Dr. Paul Ekman, a real-life specialist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body and voice to expose both truth and lies in criminal investigations. On Blu-ray Disc and DVD, the first season debuts August 25 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

“Easily one of the season’s best new shows” (Washington Post), “Lie To Me” stars OscarÒ nominee* Tim Roth (“The Incredible Hulk”) as Dr. Cal Lightman, the world’s leading deception expert, and his company The Lightman Group, who study facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover if someone is lying and why. Assisting federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with their most difficult cases, the agency consists of Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams, “The Practice”), a gifted psychologist; Eli Loker (Brendan Hines, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Lightman’s professional partner and lead researcher; and Ria Torres (Monica Raymund, “Law & Order Special Victims Unit”), the newest member of the agency with an innate ability to read people. In the groundbreaking first season of the hit show, the drama unfolds as the team is faced with numerous cases to unravel including a student fleeing a murder scene, a college basketball player accused of accepting a bribe from his university, a NASA test pilot accused of intentionally crashing a multimillion dollar aircraft, and much more!

The “Lie To Me” Blu-ray and DVD sets include 13 episodes, featurettes, deleted scenes and a gag reel, and will be sold for a suggested retail price of $59.99 U.S. / $69.99 Canada and $49.98 U.S. / $59.98 Canada, respectively. Prebook date is July 15.
