Your Guide to the CBS Original Series ‘True Lies’

Remember the 1994 James Cameron hit, True Lies? Who doesn’t? Playing on the nostalgia, a True Lies TV show airs on CBS on Wednesdays at 10|9c. Inspired by its namesake, this action-packed series centers around an international spy for the US intelligence agency, Omega Sector, Harry Tasker (Steve Howey of Shameless) and his bored professor wife, Helen (Ginger Gonzaga). Their mundane world breaks open when Helen discovers her husband’s secret double life, and she joins Harry and his team of operatives on covert missions around the globe. They embark on these adventures, tinged with danger – all while keeping it hidden from their kids.  

Although the True Lies TV show follows a similar storyline as the movie, it takes several detours and embraces modern nuances beyond the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis led flick. Brace yourself for this edge of your seat, action-packed series that will keep you fired up each week.
