One of the shows we’ve been looking forward to most in 2020 is the reboot of Perry Mason.
The HBO show – which should be broadcast in the UK by Sky Atlantic – not only has a trailer but also a US transmission date.
Here’s the trailer:
Based on characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, the series follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defence lawyer. 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.
While the rest of the country struggles through the Great Depression, the City of Angels has oil, the Olympic Games, talking pictures, evangelical fervour, and a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong.
Look out for it in the US from 21st June, no doubt following very soon on Sky Atlantic.
