'Lie to Me' Gets New Showrunner; Have Questions for Tim Roth?

As Fox's Lie to Me prepares to finish off its second season and begin filming its third, British writer Alexander Cary has signed on as showrunner after last month's annoucement that Shawn Ryan would vacate the post.

Zap2It caught up with star Tim Roth to get his take on the shift: "This writer, Alexander Cary, he is a really very, very good writer.... So that's what Shawn did for us in a way is make sure that we were set, and then he moved on."

Cary has served as both a writer and story editor on Lie to Me throughout Season 2, notably penning two of the season's most ambitious episodes, "Grievous Bodily Harm," Roth's personal favorite episode yet, and "Secret Santa," which sent Roth's character Cal Lightman to Afghanistan.

Roth went on to tell Zap2It that he has full confidence in Cary and the rest of the writing team that Shawn Ryan organized before he departed to work on two other Fox projects: FOX's midseason cop show Ride-Along and the FX comedy/drama series Terriers.
