Jake's name in this episode: James Cole
Episode airs: January 21, 2009 on FOX
Jake just wrapped a guest star role on a new TV show called LIE TO ME. The show stars Tim Roth and Kelli Williams. Jake is the main guest star for the pilot episode. He will be the son of a family of devout Jehovah’s Witnesses, is accused of killing his attractive teacher after being caught fleeing the scene. The Justice Department wants to try James (Jake) as an adult but the local mayor wants to use Cal’s skills to make sure it was premeditated murder.
From writer Samuel Baum (The Evidence) and the executive producers of 24 and Arrested Development comes Lie to Me, a drama series inspired by a real-life specialist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body, and voice to expose the truth in criminal investigations.
When you scratch your chin, wring your hands, wrinkle your nose, or swallow too much, Dr. Cal Lightman knows you're lying. He doesn't just think so, he knows so, because he's taken his exceptional skills of observation to become the foremost deception expert in the country. Being a human lie detector, Cal can uncover the deepest secrets and crack the hardest cases. More accurate than any polygraph test, he knows when those in front of him are being less than forthcoming, be they family, friends, or complete strangers.
Cal heads up a private agency contracted by the FBI, local police, law firms, corporations, and private individuals when they hit roadblocks in their searches for the truth. Joining him are a variety of experts in the field of behavioral evaluation: Dr. Gillian Foster is a gifted psychologist and Cal's professional partner, a woman whose guidance Cal needs, whether he knows it or not; Will Loker is Cal's lead researcher, and he's so aware of the human tendency to lie that he's decided to uncomplicate matters and practice what he terms "radical honesty": he says everything on his mind at all times. Ria Torres, the newest member of the team, arrives at the truth differently by acting more on instinct and using her natural, less-studied ability to read body language and catch certain clues that Cal's other pledges may miss.
Lie to me will be aired on FOX (USA) in 2009
