"Rake" started out in Australia and moved to the US. Not in real life, but on TV. It's an action-packed comedy-drama from show runner Peter Duncan starring, in the American version, Greg Kinnear, Peter Tolan, Richard Roxburgh, who is also in the Aussie version, and Michael Wimer. Fedora Entertainment, Sony Pictures Television, and Essential Media are the production companies.

Kinnear stars as Keegan Deane, otherwise known as Rake. Miranda Otto plays his former wife, psychiatrist Maddy Deane. John Ortiz is Rake's best buddy from law school. The premise is Rake defends criminals, but his primary concern centers around personal trials. He leads a self-destructive lifestyle battling against everybody with his wits. He takes on judges, district attorneys, and the man, along with a variety of quirky opponents like his bookie and IRS agents.

Initial episodes were directed by Sam Raimi and written by Peter Duncan. They come out of the procedural legal drama school meaning they go through the courtroom process as the story unfolds. They revolve around Rake's attempts to balance his professional responsibilities with his stormy personal life. He defends quirky criminals in serious situations while trying to pay off gambling debts and dealing with obstructive police officers.
