Adapted from Michael Connelly’s bestselling novels, The Lincoln Lawyer Season 1 is here. There are high hopes for the upcoming series as Hollywood legend David E. Kelley is on board as creator and executive producer of the show. One of Kelley’s most successful courtroom dramas is Chicago Hope; he also created The Practice and Ally McBeal, among others.
Ted Humphrey, showrunner and executive producer of The Good Wife, and Ross Fineman, executive producer of The Wire, are also involved (Big Sky). For all the talent involved and the fact that Connelly’s new adaptation with Matthew McConaughey in 2011 was a surprise, it was a bumpy ride.
Everything we know so far about The Lincoln Lawyer is detailed below.
The Lincoln Attorney’s Principle
Netflix offers the following summary of The Lincoln Lawyer’s premise:
“Mickey Haller, an iconoclast, and idealistic attorney, operates his law firm from the backseat of his Lincoln as he travels the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles to represent clients on matters large and small.
The first season of The Lincoln Lawyer is based on the second book in the series, titled The Brass Verdict. Written by acclaimed novelist Michael Connelly, these novels are part of a series of best-selling books.”
The Cast of Lincoln Lawyer Season 1
Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has a standout performance as the show’s protagonist, Mickey Haller, in The Lincoln Lawyer. Garcia acting Rulfo’s resume includes roles such as Vazquez in The Magnificent Seven and Carlos in the movie Widows. He also played Gabriel Ortega on the television series Goliath. Michael Connelly, the author, made the following statement regarding the main man:
“Because Mickey Haller follows in the footsteps of his lawyer father while showing the showmanship of his Mexican movie star mother, Manuel is the perfect representation of Mickey Haller.
Manuel gives the role a powerful dynamic and dimension, one that is consistent with the novels and allows the program to honor the Latinx heritage and origins of this story set in Los Angeles. Both things are made possible by the presence of Manuel.”
Neve Campbell, who played Maggie McPherson in Scream, stars with Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in this new series. Campbell plays the part of Maggie McPherson. Since the days of Party of Five, Campbell has established himself as a veteran of the film and television industry and has come a long way.
