Sam Raimi, the man behind some of the greatest titles in horror, is directing a new TV pilot.
Knowing his filmography, it just follows this must be a new genre show at Fox. Maybe something sci-fi or fantasy related, right? Nope. Raimi will be directing the pilot for the American TV adaptation of the Australian comedy Rake. The show stars Greg Kinnear.
“Based on the Australian comedic drama, Rake follows the chaotic and comedic life of criminal defense lawyer Keegan Joye (Kinnear), brilliant, frustratingly charming, and with zero filter,” Deadline reports.
This isn’t the first time Raimi and Kinnear have worked together, Kinnear co-starred in Raimi’s film The Gift. Watch a NSFW clip from the Australian version of Rake, starring Richard Roxburgh.
