Michael Connelly’s Lincoln Lawyer Coming to Netflix

The Bosch TV series, found streaming on Amazon Prime, is drawing to a close with Season 7 airing soon (reportedly this Spring). So onward and upward (we hope) with the announcement of Netflix producing a new series featuring Mickey Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer. Renowned producer David E Kelley (Ally McBeal, The Practice and Boston Legal) has been named as Executive Producer.

You may recall the excellent 2011 Clint Eastwood film starring Matthew McConaughey as The Lincoln Lawyer. This series will not reprise the story from that film, but start with the story line in the second novel in the series, THE BRASS VERDICT.

The series will star Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (pictured below) as Mickey Haller. Season one will comprise 10 one-hour episodes.

Michael Connelly commented: “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.

“Manuel is the ideal Mickey Haller, as Haller follows in the footsteps of his attorney father with the showmanship of his Mexican movie star mother. Manuel brings a powerful dynamic and dimension to the role – one that aligns with the books and will give the show the opportunity to celebrate the Latinx heritage and roots of this Los Angeles-based story,” he added.

Dates for production and airing have not been announced yet.
