SHOWTIME will launch three companion webisodes for its hit series RAY DONOVAN, giving viewers an extended storytelling experience surrounding fan favorites Lena (Katherine Moennig) and Avi (Steven Bauer) across all digital platforms. Fans will get an inside look on how Ray’s (Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Liev Schreiber) team pulls off their “fixes,” woven directly from the plotlines on screen. The webisodes, titled “Behind The Fix,” will also feature a special appearance by another of the series’ stars, Pooch Hall. Functioning as digital companion pieces to their corresponding episodes, the webisodes will be available on SHO.com, YouTube, iTunes, SHO Sync, SHOWTIME ON DEMAND and SHOWTIME ANYTIME® immediately following the episodes’ first airings on SHOWTIME on August 3rd and 17th and September 14th. This marks the first time SHOWTIME has extended episodic storylines across digital platforms, working directly with the series’ writers to delve deeper into the content on screen. Written by Cheo Hodari Coker and directed by Oscar® nominee Michael Tolkin, the first installment will give viewers an inside perspective on how Lena gets one of Ray’s clients a fake identity to extradite him out of the country.
Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, RAY DONOVAN stars 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. Season two of this powerful drama explores the fallout surrounding Boston fugitive Sully’s (James Woods) murder for Ray (Schreiber), his father Mickey (Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Jon Voight) and the FBI, headed by LA Bureau Chief Cochran (guest star Hank Azaria). As the season unfolds, Ray continues to seek balance between the demands of his family, including his volatile relationship with Mickey, and the demands of his Hollywood clients. The cast also includes Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Bauer, Moennig, Hall, Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby. Oscar-nominated actor Elliott Gould returns as a guest star. In addition to Gould and Azaria, season two also features an impressive line-up of guest stars including Ann-Margret, Wendell Pierce, Sherilyn Fenn, Vinessa Shaw, Brian Geraghty, Heather McComb and Kip Pardue. RAY DONOVAN is created and executive produced by Ann Biderman. A SHOWTIME production, the series is also executive produced by Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff and David Hollander.
