Universal Channel Acquires Fox’s Drama Series ‘Lie To Me’

Tags :

Exclusive: I have just learned that Universal Channel has closed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution to acquire the UK broadcast rights to Lie To Me. I’m also being told that the show’s first season is set to premiere on Universal Channel on September 25th and will then air daily at 9pm.

Created by Samuel Baum, Lie To Me ran for three seasons on Fox and followed Dr. Cal Lightman and his team of “deception experts” who are routinely hired by private individuals, as well as law enforcement and other government agencies who require some help to get to the truth. The drama series, which was previously broadcast by Sky1 in the UK, starred Tim Roth, Kelli Williams, Brendan, Hines, Monica Raymund, Hayley McFarland and Mekhi Phifer.
