TV Insider staffers reveal the character dramas and mysteries keeping them entertained, from classics like 'The West Wing' to newer faves like 'Grey's Anatomy.'

Watch the video below to see Tatiana Maslany, John Lithgow, and Robert Patrick — whose character brings Perry in to investigate because he doesn’t trust the LAPD to do the job — in their roles.

The series, based on the characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defense lawyer. It is set in 1931 Los Angeles, which is booming while the rest of the country struggles through the Great Depression. But amidst the oil, Olympic Games, talking pictures, and evangelical fervor is a horrible crime: a child kidnapping.

“When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason’s relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself,” the logline teases.

The series also stars Juliet Rylance, Chris Chalk, Shea Whigham, Stephen Root, Gayle Rankin, Nate Corddry, Veronica Falcon, Jefferson Mays, Lili Taylor, Andrew Howard, and Eric Lange.
