Official: Perry Mason gets full series order from HBO

There was a mild ripple of excitement when it was announced that HBO was working a Perry Mason origin series, starring Matthew Rhys as the titular icon.

Now we’re hearing news that the project has been officially greenlit by the US cable broadcaster and will get a full series.

Here’s what to expect:

1932, Los Angeles. While the rest of the country recovers from the Great Depression, this city is booming! Oil! Olympic Games! Talking Pictures! Evangelical Fervor! And a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong! Based on characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner, this limited series follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defense lawyer, Perry Mason. When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason’s relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself.

More news as we get it…
