Based on Michael Connelly’s bestselling series of novels, “The Lincoln Lawyer” centers on Mickey Haller, who is described as “an iconoclastic idealist, who runs his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles.”
Connelly and Ross Fineman, who also produced Kelley’s Amazon series “Goliath,” will serve as executive producers on the drama from A+E Studios, in association with CBS Television Studios.
