'The Lincoln Lawyer' Starring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Picked Up By Netflix

The Lincoln Lawyer has found a new home on Netflix!

The streaming service just announced that the series, from David E. Kelley, will star Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in the role of Mickey Haller.

If you’re unfamiliar, The Lincoln Lawyer is based on Michael Connelly‘s novel series and the first season of the show will be based on the second book, “The Brass Verdict”.

Here’s the summary: Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles.

“Manuel is the ideal Mickey Haller, as Haller follows in the footsteps of his attorney father with the showmanship of his Mexican movie star mother,” Michael shared in a statement from Netflix. “Manuel brings a powerful dynamic and dimension to the role – one that aligns with the books and will give the show the opportunity to celebrate the Latinx heritage and roots of this Los Angeles-based story.”

Stay tuned for the premiere date!

No word yet on it Kiele Sanchez will join the show.

If you missed it, Netflix just unveiled the new cast for another popular original series.
