Author Michael Connelly, producer David E. Kelley and Netflix announced on Jan. 11 that they are teaming up to adapt Connelly’s “The Lincoln Lawyer” series for a TV series.

The news comes as “Bosch,” the Amazon series that adapted Connelly’s Harry Bosch books, is set to end later this year after a seventh and final season.

In a post to the Netflix blog, Connelly noted one of his few bright spots in an otherwise dreary 2020 came in November with the publication of “The Law of Innocence,” the sixth book in “The Lincoln Lawyer” series featuring Los Angeles defense attorney Mickey Haller, the half-brother of Harry Bosch.

“Today, I’m excited to announce that after a bit of a journey, Mickey Haller will come to life once again on screen,” Connelly wrote.

“The Lincoln Lawyer series will be adapted to serve up the complex and mysterious arcs fans know and love with a mix of light-hearted humor and a dose of family dynamics,” he continued.

The series will star Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Haller and the first season will be based on the novel “The Brass Verdict,” the second book in the series.

Garcia-Rulfo is best-known for such films as the 2016 remake of “The Magnificent Seven” and “Sicario: Day of the Soldado.”

David E. Kelley, whose long resume includes creating shows from “The Practice” and “Ally McBeal” to “Big Little Lies” and “Goliath,” is executive producer and writer.

“Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles,” Connelly wrote as a refresher for fans and an introduction for newcomers.

“Manuel is the ideal Mickey Haller, as Haller follows in the footsteps of his attorney father with the showmanship of his Mexican movie star mother. Manuel brings a powerful dynamic and dimension to the role – one that aligns with the books and will give the show the opportunity to celebrate the Latinx heritage and roots of this Los Angeles-based story.”
