A spin-off from Suits (the final season of which also starts tonight - see below), Pearson revolves around the world of recently disbarred NYC powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) as she adjusts to down and dirty Chicago politics.

Newly appointed as Chicago Mayor Bobby Novak's (Morgan Spector) right hand fixer, Jessica is quickly embroiled in a crooked and dangerous new world where every action has far-reaching consequences.

With her compulsion to win, Jessica is forced to reconcile her unstoppable drive with her desire to do the right thing - two things very much at odds.

The Naked Director

In the 1980s, the bubble economy was at its peak and all of Japan was over-excited with possibility.

Prior to the advent of office ladies and female college students fanatically waving 'Juli-fans' and dancing in Juliana Tokyo, there was one determined entrepreuner who was developing adult videos at the beginning of the industry and challenging Japanese old-fashioned cultural norms about sex.

He was a 'pioneer of broadcasting taboo', director Toru Muranishi.

Muranishi revolutionised the concept of eroticism in Japan, and alongside legendary AV actress, Kaoru Kuroki, became household names.
