Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, Ray Donovan stars Golden Globe Award nominee Liev Schreiber as LA's best professional fixer, the man called in to make the city's celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls' most complicated and combustible situations go away. As the season unfolds, Ray seeks balance between the demands of his family, including his fractured and volatile relationship with his father, Mickey (Golden Globe Award Winner Jon Voight), and the demands of his Hollywood clients. The cast also includes Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Pooch Hall, Kerris Dorsey, Devon Bagby and special guest star Elliott Gould. Ray Donovan is the first freshman series on Showtime to average over five million viewers per week, with 5.7 million weekly viewers in its first season. The series is created and executive produced by Ann Biderman. Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff serve as executive producers.
