Scoop: RAKE on FOX - Saturday, February 15, 2014
Keegan takes on the case of three Amish bakers accused of attempted murder. Their crime? Shaving off the beard - considered a symbol of a man's faith and devotion in the Amish religion - of a bishop who was trying to retrieve a sect member in Los Angeles whom he thought was being kept against her will. Meanwhile, Scarlet and Ben plan a recommitment ceremony and Keegan uses a helpful transportation app called "Joyride," on which he meets driver Brooke Alexander (guest star Alexandra Breckenridge), a slightly overeducated, sports-betting girl who seems too good to be true in the "A Close Shave" episode of RAKE airing Saturday, Feb. 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

RAKE, a character-driven drama based on the Australian nominee for Best Television Drama series of the same name, follows the comedic and chaotic life of criminal defense lawyer KEEGAN DEANE (Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear, "Little Miss Sunshine," "The Kennedys").
On a single day, Keegan Deane is described as many things. His ex-wife-calls him "unreliable"; his son calls him a "pal"; most judges think he's "an outrage"; the IRS calls him a "defendant"; and to his former dealer, he's simply a "tragic loss."
Brilliant, frustratingly charming and with zero filter, Keegan is one of life's great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else will touch, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. He always tries to do the right thing,but at the same time struggles to save himself from the many self-destructive elements that plague his own life, such as his overindulgence of various excesses, including women and gambling.
