Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a genius. However, you wouldn't know it by looking at him. A former college dropout, he supports himself by selling marijuana and taking tests for college hopefuls, none of it challenging his eidetic memory and sky-high IQ.
Everything changes the day he meets Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). A shark in the water, Harvey is one of New York's top "closers" - lawyers who specialize in tricky clients with million dollar payouts. Harvey doesn't care about feelings and doesn't play well with others, but at the behest of his boss Jessica (Gina Torres), he finds himself in the market for a protege.
Fleeing from a drug deal gone wrong, Mike has no idea that he's stumbled into the interview room for Harvey's new associate. But Harvey knows talent when he sees it. Mike can rattle off statistics and quote legal precedent better than any judge, so Harvey hires him immediately as a new lawyer for the firm.
Mike has never been to law school.
It's this secret that drives Suits, one of USA's newest summertime hits. Originally titled A Legal Mind, it began as a freelance pilot dropped on the desks of David Bartis and Gene Klein. It was then picked up by Universal Cable Productions and sculpted into a comedy-drama about life, law and lies.
You see, if the truth gets out, Mike could lose a lot more than just his job. And with suspicious supervisor Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) on his case, not to mention the beautiful paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle) making demands of his heart, discovery seems almost inevitable. Only Harvey is on his side, and with all the bickering between them, it may not be enough.
Tune into USA to see more of this unlikely partnership both in and out of the courtroom. Suits airs on Thursdays at 10/9 Central and is currently in its second season.
