I spent my summers as a teenager watching back-to-back episodes of Perry Mason and Matlock, so when I heard that Robert Downey, Jr, had bought the rights and was breathing new life into my favorite black and white TV detective show, I was thrilled! While the series sat on the backburner for several years (blame the comic book movies!), it is now becoming a reality and will hopefully air this year on HBO!
Here are a few first-look photos released by HBO and featured in their 2020 Preview trailer that you can watch below. The series is set in 1923 Los Angeles and stars Matthew Rhys (The Americans) as a young Perry Mason. Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Chris Chalk (Gotham), and the one and only John Lithgow (our favorite villain on Dexter) round out the amazing cast!
There is sadly no indication of when exactly the series will air on HBO, so stay tuned and enjoy the first look below!
