Amidst international success as writer and executive producer of the US version of Rake (Fox), co-creator and producer, Peter Duncan has written series three of Rake with series 1 and 2 collaborator, Andrew Knight. "I am absolutely confident that my absence from set this year will attract even more amazing talent and inspire our fabulous cast and crew to greater heights," said Duncan. Ian Collie of Essential Media is producing his third series of Rake, with Peter Duncan, Richard Roxburgh and Jessica Hobbs.
ABC TV Head of Fiction Carole Sklan said, “The incomparable Richard Roxburgh as the irrepressible Cleaver Greene is unfailingly entertaining. Series three of Rake plunges us into more heights and depths of human folly.”
