Wanda Sykes has signed on to join the cast of the fifth season of the Showtime comedy series “House of Lies”
The network says Sykes will appear in at least three episodes playing a character named “Wanda,” a love interest for Jeremiah (Glynn Turman) who becomes a much-needed confidante for Marty (series star and executive producer Don Cheadle) as he looks to ascend from management mogul to global power player.
“House of Lies” is the hit half-hour comedy series from the hit tell-all book “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time” by Martin Kihn.
The TV series stars Don Cheadle (nominated four times for an Emmy for his performance), Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Glynn Turman, and Donis Leonard Jr.
Produced by Showtime, “House of Lies” is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Don Cheadle and David Walpert return as executive producers for season five.
