Ray Donovan Premieres on Showtime June 30th
Last Summer I told you about Ray Donovan coming to Showtime this summer and here it is,Sunday, June 30 at 10pm. Liev Shreiber stars as a kind of fixer for big Hollywood types, if not himself. JonVoight is Donovan senior, recently released from prison. There is no love lost between father and son. Ray also has a family of his own that is coming apart at the seams.
The show has the feeling of a 70s film along the lines of POINT BLANK or BULLIT both thematically and cinematically. Ray Donovan is a hardened detective type but with a soft spot for the damaged people he come across in his "work". There's even a boxing gym owned by his brothers.
The show is pretty rough, with plenty of altercations between family members and seedy characters. There's also a fair bit of nudity and sexual activity, not to mention Voight dancing around in a towel.
I've seen the first two episodes and I think it's a safe bet we'll have RAY DONOVAN to kick around for some time.
