Yaas. The trailer for season two of Showtime's House of Lies, a savagely funny, dark and sardonic look into the world of big business and consulting, as well as my new TV obsession (at least until Mad Men's sixth season kicks off) has been revealed.
And if you ain't up on thangs, get up on this, 'cause this show is great. All the actors, Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell in particular, are fantastic, but an interesting and compelling wrinkle is Marty Kaan's (Don's) son Roscoe, who is discovering/figuring out his gender identity and possibly his sexual orientation. The relationship between Roscoe and Marty, who while not fully understanding his son, fiercely defends him, is one of the best parts of the show. Especially when you think about the dearth of kids like Roscoe--particularly black kids--on TV.
Watch a short trailer and a longer, behind-the-scenes preview below. Oh, and Nia Long and Larenz Tate will appearing at some point, if that sweetens the pot.
