9 Truths and a Lie: Which Of These 10 New Series is Completely Made Up?

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | January 30, 2014 | Comments ()


This week’s edition of the quiz sensation, 9 Truths and a Lie, is a doozy. Last week, a full 39 percent of you managed to correctly guess the lie, but I let’s see how you good folks do this week. If I hadn’t seen the write-ups these myself, I’d never believe them most of them.

Read over the quick descriptions, and at the bottom, there is a poll where you can select the one you believe is a lie.

1. Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) will play an FBI agent in ABC’s Sea of Fire, about a small-town investigation into three teenage porn stars, who wind up murdered, abducted, or missing.

2. Beginning in March, the Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) produced Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey will begin airing on Fox. The 13-part series is a sequel to Carl Sagan’s Emmy-winning 1980 Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, and will feature Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson hosting what he calls the “greatest science story ever told.”

3. Henry Winkler (aka The Fonz) will star in The Winklers for an ABC pilot, which will center on Henry Winkler’s real-life relationship with his son in law. Winkler is currently in negotiations to play himself.

4. Dreama Walker (Don’t Tell the B—- in Apt. 23) will topline Tricks for Amazon, which is about a division of the NYC police department that poses as prostitutes in order to arrest johns and work their way into the city’s criminal underground.

5. Ron Perlman, recently of Sons of Anarchy, will star in an Amazon series, Hand to God, as a hard-drinking philandering judge who turns to religion after he hears voices through his ventilator-bound son.

6. Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) and her new husband, Happy Endings creator David Caspe, are making a sitcom called Marry Me, which will star Casey Wilson, and it’s about a newly married couple.

7. Tea Leoni will play the lead in Madame Secretary, a Morgan Freeman produced drama for CBS. Leoni will play a maverick female Secretary of State who drives international diplomacy, wrangles office politics and balances family life.

8. Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings) and Jay Harrington (Better Off Ted) will star in Benched, a single-camera courtroom comedy for the USA Network. Coupe will play a corporate attorney who melts down after failing to receive a promotion, white Harrington will play a public defender.

9. FX has greenlit You’re the Worst, about two terrible, self-destructive people who attempt the impossible: They enter into a relationship with each other.

10. NBC ordered a pilot for The Money Pit, a television series based on the Tom Hanks’ movie.

    My hate of Macfarlane or my love of Tyson...


  • Cowtools

    Please don't let Hand Of God be real. Save Ron Perlman!

  • TimeTravelMan

    Winklers is real http://tvline.com/2014/01/29/t...

    #4 is the fake one

  • John W

    Tea Leoni, yup Casey Wilson, yup Eliza Coupe, yup, Jennifer Carpenter, yup.

    I'll be watching those shows.

  • Guest

    I'm kinda stoked for the Coupe / Harrington show. Harrington is another of my Same-Sex Crushes for BoT and Coupe is Couple.

    Dreama Walker as an escort / cop is also something I'd be all for.

    *I hope Marry Me lasts long enough to get to the Divorce Me season.

  • Target_Blonde

    #7: You're only pairing Tea Leoni and Morgan Freeman together because of Deep Impact. You might as well have said LeeLee Sobieski will feature as her daughter.

  • Jiffylush

    Tea Leone is old enough to play the Secretary of State? I am so old.

  • Margrete

    I am thinking number 4 is fake. Don't think Dreama Walker is quite there yet in terms of headlining a show on her own.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Yeah, my instinct, too. Amazon likes a bargain, but they need something to trade on. So, if that's the one, same issue as last week-- too much show for not enough star.

    Though I'd love for Walker to be that much of a star. And also to escort her at red carpets. And then home, to bed.

  • Guest

    Get in line LPT.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Boo, you are right. The only reason I suspected that one was that if it was an Amazon original we'd have heard about it from the pilot process. But I still voted for Madame Secretary.

  • janetfaust

    If #9 is not fake, I'm suing. Pretty sure that was my last long term relationship.

    I would watch Jay Harrington in a court show, even though I'm tired of lawyer-y shows in general. I would love to see if he tosses in references to "Better Off Ted" somehow like Nathan Fillion in "Castle."

  • Pat

    I'm gonna go with Marry Me because I really hope Casey Wilson is better than that

  • Matt C.

    Better than a sitcom from the creator of Happy Endings? I don't follow, have you read the script or something?

  • Pat

    I'm still suffering from Happy Endings withdrawal and anything less sounds bad to me. But I will definitely watch if Marry Me ends up being a real thing

  • BWeaves

    9 just sounds too generic to be real. Or too real to be real. Whatever.

  • The "in negotiations" bit seems to be a bit of a tell, assuming it wasn't tounge-in-cheek. Going with the Winklers.

  • Arran

    It's real. (Though I'm assuming the "in negotiations" bit IS a gag.)

  • Figures. I really should throw my scruples to the wind and start Google-ing this stuff before I vote.

  • Gigi Agius

    It's got to be The Winklers. The Fonz would never stoop to that, right? right??

  • Target_Blonde

    Nope sorry guys, it's real.

  • Gigi Agius


  • tarqueeny

    I voted for The Winklers too. It's obviously a joke. I'm sure. Has to be. Surely?

  • Afferbeck

    9 reminds me of Spaced

  • Wrestling Fan

    I know that Cosmos and Money Pit are real.

    the rest? Uff da, I want them all to be fake.

  • Margrete

    Uff da? Norsk?

  • Wrestling Fan

    On my mom's side.

  • Margrete

    Cool. I stared at your post for a good five minutes. Almost thought my brain had finally given up on me, and I no longer could separate between the two languages. False alarm.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Hand to God sounds awful and Casey Wilson deserves better than that sitcom.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Sorry, Tea. I just don't think it's in the cards for you.

  • Arran

    I've actually heard of about half of these, so I can rule those out. I had to toss up between Hand to God and You're the Worst.

  • Classic

    My thoughts too...

  • Modernlove

    I was just reading about Hand to God yesterday. That one's real.

  • Arran

    Oh, Ron.

  • Maydays

    Same toss up.

  • MissElvira

    Fairly sure Hand to God is a real thing.

  • Wow, number 8 sounds like a Pajiba wet dream, really.

    Naturally, I must declare it as the lie.

    EDIT: DAMMIT TO HELL!!!!! Also, YAY!!!

  • Guest

    It's a True! I was surprised it wasn't in the last post / round.
