Synopsis >

RAKE, a character-driven drama based on the Australian nominee for Best Television Drama series of the same name, follows the comedic and chaotic life of criminal defense lawyer KEEGAN DEANE (Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear, € Little Miss Sunshine, € € The Kennedys € ). On a single day, Keegan Deane is described as many things. His ex-wife-calls him € unreliable € his son calls him a € pal € most judges think he € s € an outrage € the IRS calls him a € defendant € and to his former dealer, he € s simply a € tragic loss. € Brilliant, frustratingly charming and with zero filter, Keegan is one of life € s great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else will touch, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. He always tries to do the right thing, but at the same time struggles to save himself from the many self-destructive elements that plague his own life, such as his overindulgence of various excesses, including women and gambling. Keegan gets a majority of his cases from BEN LEON (John Ortiz, € Silver Linings Playbook, € € Luck € ), his best friend since law school. Ben is married to SCARLET (Necar Zadegan, € Emily Owens, M.D., € € The Event € ), another of Keegan € s old friends and, as Assistant District Attorney for the city of Los Angeles, quite often his opponent in court. In addition to Keegan € s cases within the justice system, the series follows his personal trials and tribulations, including his mounting debt to his bookie and his overlapping liaisons with various women, including MELISSA € MIKKI € PARTRIDGE (Bojana Novakovic, € Edge of Darkness, € € Drag Me To Hell € ), Keegan
