FOX has just announced that cast members from the critically acclaimed series The Shield, including Catherine Dent, Kenny Johnson, David Marciano, Benito Martinez, Cathy Cahlin Ryan and David Rees Snell, will reunite for an upcoming episode of Lie to Me airing this spring on FOX.
Lie to Me is executive-produced by Shawn Ryan, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series on The Shield.
In the “Pied Piper” episode, Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) is a witness at the execution of Jason Wilkie (Marciano), a prisoner he helped convict in the murder of a child 17 years ago. When the victim’s aunt and uncle, Faye Sheridan (Dent) and Charlie Sheridan ( Martinez ), are targeted again, Lightman must face the possibility he sent an innocent man to his death. Determined to uncover the truth, Lightman turns to Michael Wilkie (Snell), Jason’s younger brother, and Beth Lansford (Ryan), Jason’s ex-girlfriend, for more information on what may have happened to 8-year-old Rex Sheridan. The pair lead Lightman to Malcolm Hessler (Johnson), a photographer who becomes the key suspect in the case.
