EDGE OF DARKNESS actress Bojana Novakovic has been tapped to star alongside Greg Kinnear in Fox's upcoming drama pilot RAKE.
Novakovic is set to play the tough but tender prostitute, 'Mikki,' who has been in a five-year relationship with Kinnear's character.
Based on the Australian AACTA nominee for Best Television Drama Series, RAKE follows the chaotic and comedic life of lawyer KEEGAN JOYE (Kinnear). 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 wants, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. In addition to Keegan's cases within the justice system, the show follows his personal trials and tribulations, including his ongoing battle against the IRS, his mounting debt to his bookie, overlapping affairs and liaisons with women, a hormonal son, an exhausted ex-wife and the evolving relationship between his two married best friends, Ben and Scarlett.
RAKE comes from Peter Duncan (creator of the original Australian series) and executive-and will be produced by Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me," "Analyze This") and Michael Wimer ("2012"). Kinnear also will co-executive-produce.
RAKE is produced by Sony Pictures Television, Fedora Entertainment and Essential Media & Entertainment Pty Ltd. The pilot is created and written by Peter Duncan. The pilot is executive-produced by Duncan, Peter Tolan, Michael Wimer, Richard Roxburgh ("Rake," "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole") and Ian Collie ("Rake").
Novakovic has also appeared on ABC's miniseries MARKING TIME, SATISFACTION, and THE COOKS.
