It may sound odd that a network that doesn’t broadcast in Canada shoots a lot of their stuff here–USA Network–but, hey, it’s all good for the Canadian TV industry. The latest is Suits, a light-hearted law drama from Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), the resourceful producer/director who shoots another USA series in Toronto, Covert Affairs.
Suits stars Gabriel Macht (Love and Other Drugs) as a hotshot Manhattan attorney who hires an old pal who happens to be an unmotivated college drop out (Toronto-native Patrick J. Adams, above right) as his corporate law partner. The kid may not have a degree but he has a photographic memory as well as street smarts to burn.
USA hosted a meet-and-greet breakfast with the cast a few weeks ago on press tour. Did I go to it? No. Have I watched the screener? No. Could I at least give some sort of half-assed heads up about it? Better than anyone I know. Suits premieres tonight in Canada at 10ET/7PT on Bravo!, right after their premiere of another U.S. cable series, TNT`s Franklin & Bash. Maybe I should watch Suits–audiences in the States liked it so much it has already been renewed for a second season on USA.

  1. I’ve watched most of the episodes online and it’s very good.. very white collarish but about lawyers.

    But I find myself watching for shots of Toronto then listening to dialogue sometimes.
