With Suits coming to an end, USA Network is kicking off a spinoff — the Pearson TV show. Can it hang onto the Suits audience, and match or beat its Nielsen ratings, even after the older series ends? Will Pearson be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A USA Network political drama, Pearson stars Gina Torres, Morgan Spector, Bethany Joy Lenz, Simon Kassianides, Eli Goree, Isabel Arraiza, and Chantel Riley, DB Woodside, and Betsy Brandt. The story centers on Jessica Pearson (Torres) who, after being disbarred, left New York City for the rough and tumble world of Chicago politics. Now she serves as the fixer for the Windy City’s working-class Mayor Bobby Novak (Spector), who is up for reelection. Jessica is just trying to reconcile her competitive nature and desire to win with her goal of doing the right thing.
