Showtime Picks Up "House of Lies" and "Homeland"

Sometimes buzzed about pilots do get to go to series. Showtime announced today via press release that it picked up 12-episode seasons of both House of Lies and Homeland, with eyes on debuting them in the fall.

Homeland—which co-stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis—is described as a "psychological thriller" set in the world of the CIA. Sounds ominous and just a little bit like 24, which is expected since 24 creator Howard Gordon wrote the pilot.

As for House of Lies, the half-hour comedy series is adapted from the best-selling book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn. Lies focuses on a consultant team led by Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell. You're probably going to want to clear some DVR space for that one.
