The Lincoln Lawyer trailer brings law and order to the streets

David E. Kelley is bringing The Lincoln Lawyer to Netflix and now we have the first trailer from the upcoming streaming adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel.

The Lincoln Lawyer, which is based on the 2008 Connelly novel “The Brass Verdict”, is set to premiere on May 13, 2022, on Netflix. The series stars Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller, a defense attorney in Los Angeles who works out of a chauffeur-driven Lincoln Town Car rather than an office. The show also stars Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, Angus Sampson, and Christopher Gorham.

The Lincoln Lawyer was originally set up at CBS but the network didn’t go through with it due to complications from the COVID-19 pandemic. They did promise a series production commitment however and at the time they decided to move forward, two scripts had been written, with two more in development. Logan Marshall-Green was also in negotiations to take on the lead role but once Netflix stepped in to pick up the show straight-to-series with ten episodes, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo was then tapped to headline the project.

The Lincoln Lawyer was previously adapted for the big screen in 2011. The film was based on the 2005 novel of the same name and starred Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Haller. The film received mostly positive reviews, securing an 83% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it was moderately successful with a gross of $87.1 million globally on a $40 million budget. Along with movies like Mud and Magic Mike it kicked off the ”McConaissance” that would see the actor’s career hit a new height. The movie also stars Ryan Phillippe, Maria Tomei, Josh Lucas, William H. Macy, and Bryan Cranston.
