About the Show
The series "Suits" delves into the fast-paced, high-stakes world of a top Manhattan corporate law firm where hotshot associate 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 new 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 bona fide law 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 Litt (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" film 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.
