Great news. Michael Connelly is my favorite author. I've read all of his books and listened to a couple of audiobooks. The Amazon Prime series "Bosch," based on Harry Bosch books will end with one more season, so the timing is perfect for a new Michael Connelly series. The Lincoln Lawyer, Michael "Mickey" Haller, is actually Harry Bosch's half brother. Matthew McConaughey played Mickey Haller in the Lincoln Lawyer movie
EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has given a series order to The Lincoln Lawyer, a drama based on Michael Connelly’s series of bestselling novels, from Big Little Lies and Big Sky creator David E. Kelley and A+E Studios.
This is a new incarnation of the project, which originally was set up at CBS with a series production commitment last season. Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (The Magnificent Seven) has been tapped to play the titular character in the Netflix series as it honors the story’s Latinx origins.
“I’m excited to announce that after a bit of a journey, Mickey Haller will come to life once again on screen — this time in the TV series adaptation of The Lincoln Lawyer coming to Netflix and starring the wonderful and talented Manuel Garcia-Rulfo,” Connelly said in blog post tied to the pickup.
