Donovan's job is to solve any and all problems that face the city's elite, as he specializes in making issues disappear... except "the ones created by his own family," Showtime teases.

Schreiber is a Tony Award winner and Emmy nominee and Ray Donovan will go into production in early 2012. No word yet on when the pilot will premiere.
