USA Announces New Legal Drama For Summer

USA Network announces the launch this summer of a new legal drama, Suits (previously titled A Legal Mind). It will debut June 23 at 10 p.m. following the series return of Burn Notice. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Suits stars Gabriel Macht as a "top Manhattan corporate lawyer" who "recruits a new hotshot associate and hires the only guy that impresses him, a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout," (Patrick J. Adams). Continues THR, "In order to serve justice and save their jobs, both unconventional thinkers must continue the charade." Wait...I missed something. Is the associate actually an associate (i.e., an attorney just out of law school) or is he a college dropout, or is he a college dropout pretending to be a law school grad? Is that the "charade"?  Hmmm. Stay tuned: the series doesn't appear on USA's website yet but joins several other law-related shows on the network, including Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Fairly Legal, Psych, In Plain Sight, Burn Notice, and White Collar.
