The Lincoln Lawyer is the first book in a series of novels centered around Mickey Haller, a Los Angeles defense attorney who is the half brother of police detective Harry Bosch, the star of a separate series of crime novels. Both series are authored by Michael Connelly.
Both series have had different adaptations: The Harry Bosch novels serve as the inspiration for a television series titled Bosch on Amazon Video, with Titus Welliver (Lost) in the title role, and The Lincoln Lawyer was adapted into a film with Matthew McConaughey starring as Mickey Haller. The film came out in 2011 to positive reviews, but didn’t make a big mark at the box office.
Another adaptation of the Mickey Haller story is coming, this time to television. CBS has ordered a pilot based on novel series. The show will center around Haller as he runs his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln town car and takes on different cases around Los Angeles.
The adaptation will come from David E. Kelley, the creator of the television adaptation of Big Little Lies. The series is being developed for the 2019-2020 television season.
