About the show:
Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, Ray Donovan stars Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award nominee LIEV SCHREIBER in his first lead television role as LA's best professional fixer. "Ray" is the man called in to make the city's celebrities,' superstar athletes,' and business moguls' most complicated and combustible situations go away. This powerful drama unfolds when his father, "Mickey Donovan," played by Oscar® winner JON VOIGHT, is unexpectedly released from prison, setting off a chain of events that shakes the Donovan family to its core.
Ray works with two associates - his #1, "Avi" (STEVEN BAUER), an imposing Israeli, and "Lena" (KATHERINE MOENNIG), a laconic, hard-boiled lesbian who serves as his #2. Most of Ray's work is for Goldman/Drexler, the most powerful law firm in town led by his confidante and mentor "Ezra Goldman" (ELLIOTT GOULD), and his partner, "Lee Drexler" (PETER JACOBSON).
The only problems he can't fix are those involving his own damaged South Boston family. Ray's brother "Bunchy" (DASH MIHOK) was abused by a priest and now can't stay sober; his brother "Terry" (EDDIE MARSAN) was left in the boxing ring too long and developed Parkinson's; and the ghost of their little sister -- who committed suicide when she was a teenager - haunts them all. Additionally, his wife "Abby" (PAULA MALCOMSON) is still adjusting to their west coast, suburban life while raising their two children, "Bridget" (KERRIS DORSEY) and "Conor" (DEVON BAGBY). To Ray, all of their problems can be traced back to one person: their father Mickey, a gangster with the Irish mob who never protected his family. But everything is turned upside down when Mickey, after twenty years in a cage, makes his way to Los Angeles and is hungry for revenge. He wants money, a new life, and his place at the head of his family.
