Fox’s “Rake” is a legal drama, but the showrunners want you to know it’s not like all those other legal dramas.
For starters, it’s kind of a comedy, actually — or it lives in the oft-frustrating-to-explain middle ground that falls under both genres. Heard of that before too? Well this one is already a hit — just not in America.
“Rake” was created by Peter Duncan, originally airing in his home-country of Australia. On this side of the Pacific Ocean, the former attorney-turned-TV-man has no idea how viewers will receive his series, which stars Greg Kinnear.
