The Invention of Lying

Episode Info
Season 2
Friday, September 25, 2009 - 8:30pm

A romantic comedy which takes place in an alternate reality where lying-even the concept of a lie-does not exist. Everyone- from politicians to advertisers to the man and woman on the street-speaks the truth and nothing but the truth with no thought of the consequences. But when a down-on-his-luck loser named Mark suddenly develops the ability to lie, he finds that dishonesty has its rewards.

In a world where every word is assumed to be the absolute truth, Mark easily lies his way to fame and fortune. But lies have a way of spreading, and Mark begins to realize that things are getting a little out of control when some of his tallest tales are being taken as, well, gospel.
