Perry Mason was originally a long-running set of novels by best-selling American author Erle Stanley Gardner revolving the titular criminal defense lawyer.
It was first adapted into a TV series in the 1960s with a reboot following a decade later along with several made for TV films.
True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto was originally set to direct this miniseries with Robert Downey Jr as Mason but both were forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
