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.
