New Suits spin-off drama series, Pearson, broadcast on M-Net from 8 August right behind the 9th and final season of Suits exactly as in America.
M-Net (DStv 101) has added the Suits spin-off, Pearson, with Gina Torres, to start and show right after episodes of the new 9th and final season of Suits, exactly as both shows are broadcast on the USA Network in the United States with both series starting on M-Net from Thursday 8 August with Suits at 20:10 and Pearson at 21:10.
Both the final season of Suits and Pearson started on the USA Network on 17 July 2019 and will have seasons of 10 episodes each.
Jessica Pearson now works in Chicago for mayor Bobby Golec (Morgan Spector) as his "fixer", with viewers of Scandal/The Fixer and The Good Fight on M-Net who will enjoy Pearson.
The first episode takes a while to get going but once the must-do exposition and new-show set-up has been done, the story starts going as she fixes several of his political issues involving people he owes favours too, trade union issues and deals with office politics where initially nobody likes her.
The former attorney has her work cut out for her in this lion's den, where juggling her boss' blatant disregard for the law, an ongoing rivalry with a colleague (who happens to be the person responsible for taking away her law licence), and maintaining her already-strained personal relationships are going to prove quite the challenge.
The rest of the Pearson cast includes Simon Kassianides as Nick, Bethany Joy Lenz as Keri Allen, Chantel Riley as Angela, Isabel Arraiza as Yoli and Eli Goree as Derrick.
The creator of Suits, Aaron Korsh, is also behind Pearson and is an executive producer along with Gina Torres.
