Airs Thursdays at 10/9c on USA Network
I wouldn't have thought that the world needed another show about
lawyers, but this one proved my wrong. It is a fun and interesting show.
Mike (played by Patrick J. Ross) is a young guy, struggling with
what to do with his life. He's brilliant, but he works with a friend who's a
drug dealer, doing illegal things, rather than applying himself. He is in a
little trouble when he meets the lawyer, Harvey (Gabriel Macht), who is
interviewing Harvard grads as new associate lawyers. Mike doesn't have a law
degree, but he knows the law well, thanks to being a genius. Harvey is
impressed, despite the fact that he doesn't impress easily. He hires Mike to
work at the firm. Mike turns his life around by joining the firm.
Of course, that's not all as easy as it sounds, and that's where
all the interesting comes in. Will Mike and Harvey be found out (everyone thinks
that Mike is a lawyer, but he's not)? Will they be able to keep their jobs? Will
Mike be able to stay away from his old life and stick to the straight path?
Ross reminds me quite a bit of the actor on "One Life to Live"
who plays Todd, Trevor St. John. I guess it's because he has a certain weasely
quality to him. Another fine actor in the show is Gina Torres, who plays their
boss, Jessica. She has been on many great shows, like Xena Warrior Princess;
Alias; Firefly; Angel and many more. All of the actors on the show do a
great job, and the writing is really good.
I hope the show does well, because I really like it and want to
see how things turn! I hope you like it, too. It's a good Summer show. It
strikes a nice balance between serious and fun.
The new original series SUITS delves into the fast-paced, high-stakes world of a top Manhattan corporate law firm
where hotshot attorney Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht, “Love and Other Drugs”) makes a risky move by hiring Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams, “Lost”),
a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout, as his summer associate.
As he becomes enmeshed in this unfamiliar world, Mike relies heavily on the firm’s best paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle, “CSI Miami”) and
Harvey’s no-nonsense assistant Donna (Sarah Rafferty, “Brothers & Sisters”) to help him serve justice.
With a photographic memory and the street smarts of a hustler, Mike proves to be a legal prodigy despite the absence of bonafide legal credentials.
Proving to be an irrepressible duo and invaluable to the practice, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone
including managing partner Jessica (Gina Torres, “Gossip Girl”)
and Harvey’s arch nemesis Louis (Rick Hoffman, “Samantha Who”), who seems intent on making Mike’s life as difficult as possible.
From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS is executive produced by Doug Liman (COVERT AFFAIRS, the “Bourne” trilogy, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”)
and David Bartis (COVERT AFFAIRS, “The O.C.,”) of Hypnotic and Sean Jablonski (“Nip/Tuck,”).
Creator Aaron Korsh wrote the pilot and serves as co-executive producer and Gene Klein serves as producer.
