While "Masters of Sex," the Michael Sheen/Lizzy Caplan period drama premiering September 29th, may be the glitzier-looking of Showtime's two new dramas, it's Liev Schreiber vehicle "Ray Donovan" that attracted a lot of praise from journalists shown an early cut of the pilot before TCA in January.
Set to debut on June 30th after the season eight premiere of "Dexter," "Ray Donovan" stars Schreiber (in his first regular TV role) as the title character, a fixer for Los Angeles' wealthy and powerful whose personal life is, naturally, a mess, especially when his father (Jon Voight) is released from prison. The series comes from "Southland" creator Ann Biderman, with Paula Malcomson ("Deadwood"), Eddie Marsan ("Happy-Go-Lucky") and Katherine Moennig ("The L Word") among the cast.
Check out the catchy trailer for the series below, in which Ray deals with unfortunate corpses and transvestite hooker scandals.
