Suits is an American legal comedy-drama television series created by Aaron Korsh about a talented college dropout who - after slipping into an interview while running from a drug deal gone bad - is hired by one of New York City's best legal closers, who takes a chance on him after recognizing his raw talent and photographic memory.
Even the best lawyer in New York City can use some help.
While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht).
Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory.
Mike and Harvey are a winning team. Even though Mike is a genius, he still has a lot to learn about law. And while Harvey may seem like an emotionless, cold-blooded shark, Mike's sympathy and concern for their cases and clients will help remind Harvey why he went into law in the first place.
Mike's other allies in the office include the firm's best paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle) and Harvey's no-nonsense assistant Donna (Sarah Rafferty) to help him serve justice.
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) and Harvey's arch nemesis Louis (Rick Hoffman), who seems intent on making Mike's life as difficult as possible.
In the Season 5 premiere, Harvey (Gabriel Macht) has difficulty adjusting to changes around the office, which affects his ability to do his work.
Donna (Sarah Rafferty) must acclimate to working for Louis (Rick Hoffman), who's certain it's only a matter of time before she returns to Harvey.
Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) must decide how and when to share their big news, but their excitement about their future together will take a back seat to Harvey and Mike's latest case.
And an up-and-coming partner makes his presence known to Jessica (Gina Torres), confronting her about whether Harvey's way of doing business is beneficial to the firm.
From Universal Cable Productions, Suits was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (The Deep End). Doug Liman (Covert Affairs, The Bourne Trilogy) and David Bartis (Covert Affairs) and Gene Klein (Covert Affairs) of Hypnotic, as well as Daniel Arkin (90210) and Chris Downey (Leverage) serve as executive producers.
