Premiering Thursday 4 November, 8.30pm on ABC1, RAKE is an eight-part comedy/drama, chronicling the trials and tribulations of criminal barrister, Cleaver Greene – defender of the indefensible and champion of the lost cause…both in the court room and the bedroom.
On any single day, Cleaver Greene is described as many things. Whilst his ex¬-wife may call him ‘unreliable’, his son will call him ‘a mate’. To his learned friends at the bar table he is ‘a real wag’, to his jurors he is ‘hilarious’, and to most judges he is ‘an outrage’. To the Tax Office, he is ‘a defendant’, to a certain brothel owner ‘a legend’, and to his former cocaine dealer ‘a tragic loss’.
Rake also stars Matt Day, Russel Dykstra, Adrienne Pickering, Danielle Cormack and Caroline Brazier and features special guest stars Rachel Griffiths, Hugo Weaving, Sam Neill, Lisa McCune and Noah Taylor.
