INVENTION OF LYING
SYNOPSIS: From Ricky Gervais, the award-winning
creator and star of the original BBC series "The
Office" and HBO's "Extras," comes the new
romantic comedy "The Invention of Lying."
"The Invention of Lying" takes place in an alternate
reality in which 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 (Gervais) 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. With the entire world now hanging on his every word,
there is only one thing Mark has not been able to lie his way
into: the heart of the woman he loves.
On January 19th The Invention
of Lying will also be available ON DEMAND through Digital
Cable, Satellite TV, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game
