TV show description:
While running from a drug deal gone bad (helping his childhood best friend), brilliant college-dropout Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) 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 — even though Mike’s never been to law school.
Mike and Harvey are a winning team. 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 help remind Harvey about why he went into law in the first place. Mike’s other allies in the office include the firm’s best (and most attractive) paralegal Rachel Lane (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 about Mike’s background from everyone — including managing partner Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) and Harvey’s arch nemesis Louis Lit (Rick Hoffman), who seems intent on making Mike’s life as difficult as possible.
