Robert Downey, Jr. Crashed 'Perry Mason' Panel During ATX Festival To Announce Premiere Date

Robert Downey, Jr. popped into the Perry Mason panel tonight during the virtual ATX Festival and delivered some very exciting news.

The 55-year-old actor and wife Susan, are executive producers on the HBO show which stars Matthew Rhys as the title character.

Robert‘s cameo happened when the moderator asked panelists when the show would premiere and he crashed the party, so he could answer.

“I have been on my heels for 92 minutes,” he shared. “First I would like to say the usual: you’re welcome.”

Robert then revealed Perry Mason would debut on June 21 at 9/8c on the primetime network.

“That’s the slot, by the way. That 9 p.m. Sunday slot, that’s the good one,” he added.

Set in 1931 Los Angeles amidst the Great Depression, Perry Mason is just getting started in his career, when the case of the decade breaks down his door. His relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe a pathway to redemption for himself.
