FOX has released the first 16 minutes of the new dramedy, which stars Kinnear as Keegan Deane, a brilliant and frustratingly charming criminal defense attorney, whose chaotic and self-destructive personal life often gets in the way of his professional one.
In Thursday’s premiere, entitled “Serial Killer,” Keegan deals with a serial killer’s confession that may or may not be the work of the Los Angeles police chief. Meanwhile, a client pays him with an expensive fish, but he tries to collect money from a sushi restaurant to pay off his bookie for part of his gambling debt.
Check out the sneak peek above.
“Rake” premieres on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
