It looks like Jessica Pearson has some new company. Deadline reports Rebecca Rittenhouse and Morgan Spector have joined USA Network’s Suits spin-off pilot.
As reported earlier, the network has ordered a spin-off to the legal drama that centers around Gina Torres’ character, Jessica Pearson. The new series will follow Pearson as she moves to Chicago and “must rely on her legal wits and valiant relationships from Pearson Specter Litt to navigate this unknown territory.”
On the untitled pilot, Rittenhouse will be playing Keri Allen, “a driven and ambitious city attorney and the unofficial right hand to the mayor.” Meanwhile, Spector has been cast as “Mayor Bobby Golec, the handsome, charismatic and enigmatic workingclass mayor of Chicago who is up for re-election in six months.”
