Hollywood actress Kristen Bell has revealed that she decided to get back involved with a television series again, as she had an itch that needed to be scratched. Kristen, who was in the hit series Veronica Mars, is set to appear in her new television series House of Lies and admits that she was delighted that Showtime agreed to pick up the series.
Bell explained, "I had an itch to do TV again with a few specific goals in mind: I didn't want to carry it on my shoulders. I wanted to work with someone out of my league. Also, I wanted a network that had cache and the ability to provide a provocative storyline. I'm not even saying that necessarily had to be the dictionary definition, like sexy; I just wanted something outside of the box, something that could tackle issues that wasn't necessarily falling under the censorship umbrella of primetime."
She added, "I wanted something different. I had either Showtime or HBO in mind, and Dax and I had come up with a show idea that we met with Showtime about, they loved it and ended up buying it." You can see Kristen Bell in House of Lies, which is set to premiere on Showtime, this coming Sunday, January 8 at 10pm.
