Perry Mason: Release Date, Cast, Trailer and More!

Published

on

Co-produced by HBO and Robert Downey Jr., Perry Mason will be an 8-chapter limited series about how Los Angeles was its own phase of mysteries and crimes while the rest of the country was recovering from the Great Depression in 1931. Based on the short stories and novels by the American Lawyer Erle Stanley Gardner, Perry Mason is a defense attorney who also works as a private detective. In the HBO series, the case that lands in his hands are going to change his life forever.

Release Date

Filmed in the second half of last year, Perry Mason is set to premiere on HBO on June 21, Sunday. The show is a reboot of the ‘Perry Mason’ that runs from 1957 to 1966. The trailer was out yesterday and the teaser was released about a month ago.

Cast and Crew

The series cast is full of well-known and award-winning faces. The ‘Americans’ fame Mathew Rhys will take up the titular role of Perry Mason. We will also see Tatiana Maslany from ‘Orphan Black’ as Sister Alice, John Lithgow as Elias Birchard “E.B.” Jonathan, Chris Chalk as Paul Drake, Shea Whigham as Pete Strickland, Juliet Rylance as Della, Street, Nate Corddry as Matthew Dodson, Veronica Falcon as Lupe, Jefferson Mays as Virgil and Gayle Rankin as Emily Dodsony.

Previously Robert Downey Jr was in talks to play the titular role when True Detective showrunner Nic Pizzolatto was assigned as in-charge of the series. But owing scheduling conflicts both of them turned down their roles. The show was then reassigned to Ron Fitzgerald and Rolin Jone as showrunners. Timothy Van Patten, known for the Game of Thrones pilot along with episodes of The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Sex and the City, The Wire, The Pacific, Rome, and Deadwood, has directed the series.

Plot

Suffering from PTSD of World War 1 and a broken marriage, attorney-cum-detective Perry Mason is set on to investigate a kidnapping wrong and ends up uncovering the layers of façade of a crime whose roots belong to darkest corners of the city. Sister Alice, the head of a Christian church-community, pushes Mason to dig deeper to unveil the truth.

Trailer

The trailer looks better, bigger, darker, and more promising than the teaser. “I don’t like it here. Everybody’s up to something, hiding something. Everybody’s got an angle and everybody is guilty.”
