Extended Trailer For Showtime's Ray Donovan Starring Liev Schreiber
One series that definitely seems worth seeking out this summer is Showtime's Ray Donovan. On paper, the new series sounds as promising as pretty much any television premiere this upcoming season, overflowing with talent both behind and in front of the camera. Created by Southland's Ann Biderman and directed by House of Cards' Allen Coulter, Ray Donovan also features a stellar cast that includes Liev Schreiber as well as legends like Jon Voight and Elliott Gould. Here's the extended trailer. It looks as good as it sounds.
Very much just an extended version of the previously released teaser (the beats are the same, just flushed out a little more), it does't necessarily drum up any new excitement for the series instead of merely reassuring that my confidence was not misplaced. It's nice to see a bit more of the rest of the great ensemble that includes Deadwood standout Paula Malcomson (rad) and Kerris Dorsey, Brad Pitt's adorable daughter in Moneyball.
The Michael Clayton-esque fixer character balancing his family life is perfect for Schreiber, even if the Hollywood setting seems plenty of times before. Of course, the same could be said for police dramas and yet Biderman managed to craft an interesting take on that tired genre so I'm hopeful she can do the same with the gritty-looking Showtime series. "Don't let the wolf in the gate." Ray Donovan premieres Sunday, June 30 at 10 p.m. ET on Showcase. Created by Ann Biderman, the series stars Schreiber, Voight, Gould, Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Katherine Moennig and Dash Mihok.
