Michael Raines is a police detective who investigates murders. With the series premiere, Raines is returning to work after recovering from a shootout that killed his partner, Charlie Lincoln. Over the course of each episode, Raines involuntarily hallucinates the victims, whom he speaks to and uses as sounding boards for his case; as Raines learns more about the dead, the apparitions he sees change duly. Once Raines solves their murders, the hallucinations disappear. Creator and executive producer Graham Yost found the analogous premise of Raines in his own creative process: “I spend time alone in a room, thinking of characters and interacting with them. And I’ll talk a dialogue in my head.”

Yost cast Jeff Goldblum as Michael Raines, homicide detective and Raymond Chandler fan who, like Chandler’s Philip Marlowe, “hides a tender heart beneath cynical gibes and sarcastic asides.” Media Life called the choice ideal, what with Goldblum’s “unconventional looks, mannerisms and vocal style.” Malik Yoba was cast as Charlie Lincoln, Raines’ partner who died before the show began; whereas he once kept his eccentric partner grounded, now Raines hallucinates his presence and continues to rely on his assistance.
