A longer look at Matthew Rhys in the forthcoming HBO/Sky Atlantic limited drama Perry Mason has been released.
Set in 1932 Los Angeles, the limited series focuses on the origin story of famed defence lawyer Perry Mason (Matthew Rhys), based on characters from Erle Stanley Gardner’s novels.
Living check-to-check as a low-rent private investigator, Mason is haunted by his wartime experiences in France and suffering the effects of a broken marriage. LA is booming while the rest of the country recovers from the Great Depression – but a kidnap gone wrong leads to Mason exposing a fractured city as he uncovers the truth of the crime.
The cast also includes John Lithgow, Shea Whigham, Tatiana Maslany, Juliet Rylance, and Matt Frewer.
Perry Mason will be on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV from Monday 22nd June.
