RAKE – Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “The Kennedys”) makes his broadcast television series debut in the bold new legal drama RAKE, created by Peter Duncan (ABC1 Australia’s “Rake”) and executive-produced by Peter Tolan (“Rescue Me,” “Analyze This”) and Michael Wimer (“2012”). 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.
Gritty new fast-paced drama GANG RELATED follows RYAN LOPEZ (Ramon Rodriguez, “Battle Los Angeles,” “The Wire”), a rising star in Los Angeles’ elite Gang Task Force — led by SAM CHAPEL (Emmy Award winner Terry O’Quinn, “Lost”) — who teams up with longtime Task Force member CASSIUS GREEN (RZA, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Californication”) to take on the city’s most dangerous gangs, including one he has an allegiance to. The series is from creator/writer Chris Morgan (“Wanted,” “Fast Five”), Academy Award-winning executive producer Brian Grazer (“24,” “A Beautiful Mind”), director Allen Hughes (“Dead Presidents,” “Book of Eli,” “Menace II Society”) and executive producer/showrunner Scott Rosenbaum (“The Shield”).
