Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear makes his broadcast television series debut in the bold new legal drama RAKE, created by Peter Duncan and executive-produced by Peter Tolan and Michael Wimer. Kinnear is KEEGAN DEANE, one of life’s great addicts, a brilliant and frustratingly charming criminal defense attorney, whose chaotic and self-destructive personal life often gets in the way of his professional one. Keegan takes on the cases that nobody else will touch, ruled by a resolute optimism, belief in justice and dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption – much like himself.
Rake is a remake of the British series of the same name and failed to catch the attention of its audience. A lawyer who has gambling, sex and drug problems barely getting by and getting criminals and innocents off the hook. This crime legal drama touches on every emotion and is underrated. I recommend this show to crime drama buffs.
