The time has come for Mary Kaan & Associates to head off into the corporate sunset.
On Sunday, June 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT, our favorite corporate sharks will board their last flight, in grand, historic style, to Havana for the conclusion of the Showtime comedy series House of Lies.
The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc.
Shot entirely on location and directed by series creator and executive producer Matthew Carnahan, this final episode, No Es Fácil, marks the first time an American scripted series was shot in Cuba since the restoration of diplomatic relations.
House of Lies starred Don Cheadle in his Golden Globe winning performance as Marty Kaan. The series also starred Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Donis Leonard Jr. and Emmy winner Glynn Turman.
“House of Lies is a comedy that has frequently been ahead of the curve,” says Nevins. “Over the course of its five seasons, it has tackled such hot-button topics as gender identity, wealth inequality, white privilege, police brutality, interracial relationships, and code-switching with honesty and a biting sense of humor. Matthew Carnahan and Don Cheadle have been dream partners and impeccable leaders. The core cast of Don, Kristen, Ben and Josh are one of the best comedy teams on television. They have brought the series to an incredibly satisfying conclusion with this historic final episode shot in Cuba.”
“Creating and running House of Lies has been a true dream gig, a creative apotheosis,” says Carnahan. “Working with the remarkable team that Jessika Borsiczcky, David Walpert and I were allowed to put together, along with the incredible cast and crew, coming to work every day was a joy.”
