“Rake” season 1, episode 4: “Cannibal” airs Thursday on Fox.
Coming up on the next episode, reeling from the death of his father, Ben asks Keegan to take over the case of Graham Murray, the mayor’s top economic advisor who is accused of murdering and eating the remains of a young accountant. Although Ben thinks this will never go to trial, Keegan is determined to prove Murray’s innocence, after he finds out interesting details surrounding the alleged victim’s death. Meanwhile, Keegan has legal troubles of his own and Mikki makes a decision about her career.
Fox describes the show as follows:
“Based on the Australian AACTA nominee for Best Television Drama Series, “Rake” follows the chaotic and comedic life of criminal defense lawyer Keegan Joye (Greg Kinnear). Brilliant, frustratingly charming, and with zero filter, Keegan is one of life’s great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else wants, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. In addition to Keegan’s cases within the justice system, the show follows his personal trials and tribulations, including his ongoing battle against the IRS, his mounting debt to his bookie, overlapping affairs and liaisons with women, a hormonal son, an exhausted ex-wife and the evolving relationship between his two married best friends, Ben and Scarlett.”
“Rake” season 1, episode 4 air Feb. 13 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
