Plot Synopsis

Based on characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, this drama series follows the origins of American fiction's most legendary criminal defense lawyer, Perry Mason, who is a low-rent private investigator who is living check-to-check and is haunted by his wartime experiences in France and suffering the effects of a broken marriage. It's 1931 in Los Angeles, and while the rest of the country struggles through the Great Depression, this city is booming. And a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong. 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. Other characters in this series include: Elias Birchard 'E.B.' Jonathan, a struggling attorney and a semi-regular employer of Mason; Della Street, E.B. Jonathan's creative and driven legal secretary; Sister Alice McKeegan, the leader of the Radiant Assembly of God, preaching to a hungry congregation and a radio audience across the country; Paul Drake, a beat cop with a knack for detective work; Pete Strickland, who is hired by Mason as an extra set of eyes on his various investigations; and more.
