As the writers strike continues, Fox is increasing the series order for its lie detector game show.

The network has upped the order for "Moment of Truth" from seven to 12 episodes. The show connects contestants to a lie detector and asks them 21 increasingly personal questions for a chance to win half a million dollars. The network recently scheduled "Truth" to premiere Wednesday, March 12.

Fox reality regular Mark L. Walberg ("Joe Millionaire," "Temptation Island") has been tapped as host and Howard Schultz ("Extreme Makeover") executive produces.
