MEKHI PHIFER EXITS "LIE TO ME"
Released by Miss TV Girl
Mekhi Phifer will not be a part of season 3 of "Lie to Me", due to a change in the dramatic structure of the show.
"The FBI franchise limited our storytelling a little bit because it had to adhere to the FBI structures of 'Would the FBI take this case or not?"' said executive producer David Graziano in the interview. "The character that's going to be our badge this season is a bent cop, Wolowsky ( Monique Gabriela Curnen) , who goes about business in a similar way to Lightman. There's a mutual respect from the get-go. We're working hard to make The Lightman Group a dysfunctional family.''
Sorry to see Phikfer leave, but I never truly felt that "Lie to Me" was a good fit for him and his talents. However, I am really looking forward to see where he pops up next.
The season 2 finale, 'Black and White,'airs tonight. Season 3 debuts Nov. 10.
