Netflix has ordered The Lincoln Lawyer, a new series from executive producer and writer David E. Kelley and A+E Studios.
The series follows Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), an iconoclastic idealist who runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, taking on big and small cases across the city of Los Angeles. The show is based on the series of best-selling novels by author Michael Connelly, with the first season tackling the events of the second book in The Lincoln Lawyer series, The Brass Verdict.
Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife, Wisdom of the Crowd) is serving as showrunner, executive producer and writer on the series. Connelly and Ross Fineman are also executive producing.
Connelly said: “I’m thrilled to call Netflix our home. And I’m excited to bring this rich, multilayered story filled with intriguing characters and mysteries to solve to millions of viewers—both old and new fans—around the world.”
