NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — More than 3.5 million viewers got an extensive look at Doc Johnson’s manufacturing facilities and products in this week’s “House of Lies” episode, the company says.

In this week’s episode of Showtime’s hit series, “House of Lies,” (Season 2, episode 8 — Wonders of the World), the consultants — Kristin Bell as Jeannie, Ben Schwartz as Clyde, and Josh Lawson as Doug — travel to Doc Johnson’s actual production facility in order to better understand the business of pleasure.

The consultants are joined by Adam Brody as Nate, the incoming Doc Johnson CEO wishing to honor his father’s vision and commitment to American manufacturing in the current industry of competitors’ selling imported products made of sub-standard materials and at lower prices. The tour Brody’s character conducts takes the cast (and audience) through production area scenes, as dildos and other toys are poured, painted, and prepped.

“We are honored to be featured so prominently by ‘House of Lies,’” Doc Johnson COO Chad Braverman said. “The obstacles that Adam Brody’s character faces are the very same that Doc Johnson collectively strives to overcome in reality. It is gratifying to receive recognition from mainstream entertainment and media for our industry leadership in American manufacturing. We’re excited to see where this storyline goes and how the consultants tackle these issues.”

Heavily featured is the Lucid Dream No. 14, which arrived in a Doc Johnson branded box sent to consultant Jeannie by Doc Johnson’s CEO in an attempt to convince Jeannie of his products’ quality. Unable to resist the allure of the renown No. 14’s G-spot head and multi-speed vibrations, Jeannie uses the product in her office and goes on to gush about its effectiveness later in the episode.

Many additional best-selling products are featured throughout the episode including the Noches Latinas Tetas Grandes, The Great American Challenge, Sasha Grey’s UR3 Deep Penetration Vibrating Pussy & Ass, the iVibe Rabbit, Mood Fantastic wand, WonderLand Pleasurepillar, and the classic Pocket Rocket Plus.  

"We are thrilled by the quality and quantity of product screen time” said Victoria Bowman-Steinour, Doc Johnson director of marketing and public relations. “We appreciate this opportunity from Showtime to showcase a fictionalized version of our story and highlight our actual products to the millions of viewers of House of Lies. I am sure our customers will appreciate this boost in consumer awareness too!”

Kristen Bell live-tweeted the episode on Sunday night, while Golden Globe Award-winner, Don Cheadle, interacted with “House of Lies” fans on Twitter, including retweeting Doc Johnson. Fans were quite enthusiastic about the episode, with the two House of Lies hashtags being used more than 14,000 times in the first 24 hours of the episode airing.
“House of Lies” airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

“House of Lies” has confirmed that the Doc Johnson storyline is part of a 3-episode arc for Adam Brody’s character.
