Perry Mason (cri-fi pulp noir TV series: trailer).

HBO is bringing Perry Mason back into 1932 for a new pulp noir TV series (based on the classic crime novels written by Erle Stanley Gardner). The Great Depression grips the United States but Los Angeles is prospering thanks to an oil boom, the film industry, the summer’s Olympic Games, and a massive evangelical Christian revival.

Down-and-out criminal defense attorney Perry Mason (actor Matthew Rhys) is retained for a sensational child kidnapping trial and his investigation portends major consequences for Mason, his client, and the city itself.
