Remember just a few days ago when it was known that Liev Schreiber would be starring in his own Showtime series “Ray Donovan”?
Well, Showtime has just confirmed the news after Schreiber’s deal closed and the network has released a press release with the news:
Liev Schreiber has been cast in the title role in the Showtime pilot “Ray Donovan,” a drama set in Hollywood, California. Production will begin in Los Angeles in early 2012.
Ray Donovan is Hollywood’s best professional “fixer.” He’s the one called in to solve the complicated, confidential and controversial problems of the city’s elite. He can make anyone’s problem disappear, except the ones created by his own family. The series, which has comedic undertones, will take a novelistic look at contemporary Los Angeles.
“Ray Donovan” is a Showtime production and is created by Southland creator Ann Biderman. Biderman, Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff will executive produce.
Schreiber recently completed production on P.J. Hogan’s comedy Mental alongside Toni Collette and will next star in Mira Nair’s thriller “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” opposite Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland. Schreiber will also be seen in “Goon” with Jay Baruchel and Seann William Scott.
