Originally developed for CBS, this series adaptation of Michael Connelly's second most famous protagonist is moving forward at Netflix.

It's a different team than "Bosch", with A&E Studios handling the production, but they're taking a similar approach. The first season will be 10 episodes, and adapt the second novel in the series (The Brass Verdict).

David E. Kelley has overseen the development starting with the CBS iteration, and Ted Humphrey ("The Good Wife", "Incorporated") will serve as showrunner.

Mexican actor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will play 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. 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."

Neve Campbell will play Maggie McPherson, "a passionate Deputy District Attorney who was previously married to Mickey Haller" who is the mother of his daughter Hayley.

I burned through the first bunch of Mickey Haller and Harry Bosch books back when I was in law school. They aren't high art or anything, but they were a good way to unwind after school. I'll be checking out the Netflix series.

I was very disappointed when CBS passed on the series and am looking forward to it on Netflix. I was a big fan of the movie The Lincoln Lawyer.

More casting:
  • Becki Newton ("Ugly Betty") as Lorna Taylor, Mickey's office manager and second ex-wife. Her condo in West Hollywood is the closest thing the law firm has to an office.
  • Jazz Raycole, originally cast for the CBS pilot, will continue in the new iteration as Izzy, "Mickey’s client, a young former addict charged with grand larceny for stealing a necklace to support her habit. Izzy’s clean now – a fact that Mickey can relate to – and he not only gets her acquitted but lets her pay off her bill by working as his driver."
  • Angus Sampson, also carried over from the CBS pilot, will play Cisco, "a former biker gang member who now serves as Mickey’s investigator, friend, and when necessary, bodyguard, Cisco is an imposing figure with a keen mind and a deep well of contacts on both sides of the law that help him do his job."
