Showtime's edgy comedy "House of Lies" returns for its third season on Sun. Jan. 12, 2013 (10 p.m.), so Showtime is airing the first two seasons of the hit in a marathon on Jan. 11 and 12, according to media announcement emailed by Showtime on Jan. 3, 2014.

The catch-up marathon starts at noon on Sat. and Sun., Jan. 11-12. The schedule of episodes in on the Showtime website. The episodes are also available on Showtime On Demand and Showtime Anytime.

"House of Lies" stars Emmy nominated and Golden Globe winner Don Cheadle as overly slick, fast talking elite business consulant Marty Kaan. The comedy also stars Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Glynn Turman, Dawn Oliviere and Donis Leonard Jr.. The series airs in a Sunday night block with comedies"Shameless" and "Episodes."

Elite business consultant Marty Kaan (Cheadle), a man with a single-minded pursuit: power. Kaan stops at nothing to manipulate his clients and co-workers in his quest for the brass ring. Cheadle has been honored with the Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of Marty Khan. He has again been nominated for the Golden Globe, as well as for the upcoming SAG Award.

Marty's quest for power and success is eternally complicated at work by his relationships with his youthful “Pod” of co-workers: sexy, whip-smart co-conspirator Jeannie (Bell) and underlings Clyde (Schwartz) and Doug (Lawson).

At home, Marty is forced to juggle unwanted advice from his interferring psychoanalyst father Jeremiah (Emmy winner Glynn Turman) and drama from his sexy but demented ex-wife Monica (Olivieri). He tries to be a loving father to his challenging gender-fluid teenage son Roscoe (Leonard).

As the new season starts, Marty is dealing with the wreckage from his decision to launch his own firm. The damage has spilled onto the Pod and the almighty quartet of co-conspirators is disbanded.

Marty is preoccupied with hustling up new clients to keep his business. Meanwhile, Jeannie, his former mentee is channeling her inner Kaan and making big moves in his absence.

Everything has been turned upside-down, so it is anyone’s game and anyone’s guess as to who will come out on top – at work and at play.

Season three guest stars include Grammy® Award winner T.I. ("American Gangster," "Identity Thief"), Mekhi Phifer ("Lie to Me," "ER"), Eliza Coupe ("Happy Endings," "Scrubs") and Daniel Stern ("Home Alone," "The Wonder Years"). Previous guest stars Griffin Dunne (“The Rainmaker”), Bess Armstrong (“Julianne”) and Jenny Slate (“Sarah”) will also return this season.
