(NASDAQ: RLJE) brand. In a Silver Logie award-winning role, Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge!, Van Helsing) stars as the brilliant, but destructive barrister Cleaver Greene in this top-rated series. The DVD 3-Disc Set features 8 episodes ($39.99, and bloopers. Rake, Series 3 was also featured in May 2017 on Acorn TV. Called a "glorious streaming service... an essential must-have" (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America's most popular and largest streaming service focused on British and international television.

In Series 3 of the hit Australian comedy-drama, smart but self-destructive lawyer Cleaver Greene (Richard Roxburgh) languishes in prison on manslaughter charges. After serving several months surrounded by old enemies, fellow lawyer Scarlet (Danielle Cormack) wins his appeal hearing. Cleaver is overjoyed to be released, but soon finds that things have changed since he went inside-Scarlet has opened her own practice, his best friend faces a startling diagnosis, and his already bad reputation has been seriously damaged. Not even criminals want to be represented by Cleaver, until a corruption SCANDAL involving casino mogul Tikki Wendon (Geneviève Lemon, Top of the Lake) and former Attorney General Cal McGregor (Damien Garvey, Jack Irish) yields Cleaver new clients.

Guest stars in this "smart, cheeky, and funny legal series" (Newcastle Herald, Australia) include Magda Szubanski (Kath & Kim), John Noble (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), and Robyn Nevin (The Matrix films).
