The premiere date of TRUE LIES has changed since it was previously announced. It will now premiere on Wednesday, March 1.
Inspired by Executive Producer James Cameron’s Hit Action/Comedy Film of the Same Name
Series Also Stars Omar Miller, Erica Hernandez, Mike O’Gorman, Annabella Didion and Lucas Jaye
Beverly D’Angelo Guest Stars as Trilby, Director of Spy Agency Omega Sector
“Pilot” – Inspired by James Cameron’s hit action/comedy film of the same name, TRUE LIES follows Harry Tasker (Steve Howey), a first-class international spy for U.S. intelligence agency Omega Sector, and his wife, Helen (Ginger Gonzaga), a language professor bored with her daily routine, who makes the shocking discovery that her seemingly ordinary husband is leading an extraordinary double life. With the secret out, Omega recruits Helen, who impresses everyone with her formidable skills (thanks to Tae Bo and yoga), and she joins Harry and his team of top-notch operatives, embarking on covert missions around the globe and an exhilarating life of danger and adventure – all while keeping their adventures a secret from their children. The renewed bond between them adds much-needed sizzle to the Taskers’ emotionally distant marriage and upends the top-secret world of Omega Sector. But, as Harry says, if you’re going to save the world, you might as well do it for the ones you love, on the series premiere of TRUE LIES, Wednesday, March 1 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and available on the CBS app and streaming on Paramount+.

Whenever a shows start date is pushed back it’s always a bad sign. Show must be terrible
Did the same with Lethal Weapon and look how that turned out!
Criminal Minds Evolution is a mistake, two episodes in and I have stopped watching it. It’s drab, slow and just like the regurgitation of the original show.
I see a flop a coming. True Lies, the movie, was a comedy/spy action adventure centered on Helen (Jamie Lee Curtis) ultimate discovery that her husband Harry (Arnold Schwarzenegger) was a super spy and not the boring salesman of his cover story. That worked for a two hour film. We all now know the True Lie about Harry. There’s nothing left to base a series on – nothing to reboot.
