Episode 1

Chapter One

Written by Rolin Jones and Ron Fitzgerald
Directed by Tim Van Patten


Series premiere. Los Angeles, 1931. On the heels of an unsavory investigation involving a famous comedian, Perry Mason – a PI struggling to make ends meet – and his right-hand man Pete Strickland are hired by attorney E.B. Jonathan, Perry's mentor, to solve a perplexing case: the brutal kidnapping of one-year-old Charlie Dodson, whose parents Matthew and Emily were targeted for a $100,000 ransom. After meeting with Herman Baggerly, a millionaire elder at the Dodsons' church, Perry, E.B., and E.B.'s legal secretary Della Street ponder why a family of unmistakably modest means would be extorted for such a steep price.

During a routine domestic intervention, beat cop Paul Drake is rerouted to a gruesome crime scene, where he follows a confounding trail of evidence. Mason is left incensed by a jaw-dropping admission from Baggerly and, after pressing Emily on her husband's alibi, finds himself confronted by an outraged Della. Detectives Holcomb and Ennis use Drake's findings to their own advantage.
