The first season of The Lincoln Lawyer is based on Michael Connelly’s most popular novels. Because David E. Kelley, a well-known Hollywood figure, is not only the show’s creator but also an executive producer, the new show has high expectations. Kelley has a track record of producing successful legal dramas. To mention a few, Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally McBeal, and Boston Legal are all examples of this.
Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) is the showrunner and executive producer, and executive producer Ross Fineman is also on board (Big Sky). Despite having a number of terrific performers and a surprising smash with Matthew McConaughey’s 2011 film based on Michael Connelly’s books, the series has a long way to go.

Mickey Haller is played by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in The Lincoln Lawyer. Garcia-Rulfo has acted in films such as Widows, Goliath, and The Magnificent Seven. The author, Michael Connelly, said of the lead:
As a lawyer like his father, and a showman like his mother, Manuel is the perfect Mickey Haller. Manuel is a Mickey Haller. As in the books, Manuel gives a great dynamic and dimension to the part, allowing the play to honour its Latinx roots and heritage.”
In the series, Neve Campbell will play Maggie McPherson, opposite Garcia-Rulfo. A long time actor, Campbell has evolved since his role in Party of Five.

Lola Jazz (Becklin) Izzy Letts Raycole
