No 'Lie': Roth set for Fox drama


Tim Roth is set as the lead in Fox's one-hour pilot "Lie to Me."

Meanwhile, Brian Hallisay has been tapped to co-star on the CW's new drama "Privileged," and Jeff Hephner, Jay R. Ferguson and Katie Lowes have joined another new CW drama, "Easy Money."

"Lie to Me," from 20th TV and Imagine, centers on Cal Lightman (Roth), a cutting-edge researcher in the field of "deception detection."

"Privileged," from WBTV and Alloy, centers on Megan (Joanna Garcia), a Yale-educated woman who is hired to be the live-in tutor/life coach to rich 16-year-old twin girls in Palm Beach, Fla.

Hallisay will play the wealthy son of a publishing mogul living next door who is a potential love interest for Megan. He is repped by Domain and Untitled.

"Money," from MRC, revolves around a family of loan sharks and centers on the matriarch (Laurie Metcalf), who runs the business, and her middle son (Hephner). Ferguson, repped by IFA and 1 Management, will play the eldest son, while Lowes, repped by Innovative and manager David Sweeney, will play the younger sister.

Hephner is repped by Gersh and manager Tony Cloer. (partialdiff)
