Tim Roth to Fox: Lie To Me

It seems Fox is a little obsessed with lying and lie detection these days. The Moment of Truth is still a ratings success, and now, the network has recruited Tim Roth to star in a new drama series about "deception detection."

In Lie to Me, Roth will play Dr. Cal Lightman, the scientist who pioneered the lie-detection field — and who's based on a real-life scientist, Dr. Paul Ekman, who was featured prominently in many stories about the psychology of reading people's faces. According to Variety, the fictional Lightman is "a human lie detector, skilled at reading the human face, body and voice to uncover the truth in criminal and private investigations. The fact that the character can apply the same skills to his personal life complicates his relationships."

Lie to Me marks Roth's first time leading a TV series, and he apparently took three months of pursuing by the show's producers before he would finally agree to the job. The show's pilot is scheduled to film in August, and Fox has already committed to ordering 13 episodes of the show.

I'm pretty fascinated by the idea of being a "human lie detector," and I'm curious to see how Roth does on the small screen. How about you? Would you check out this show?
