What’s Suits: L.A. about?

Stephen Amell, Josh McDermitt, Lex Scott Davis and others play high-powered lawyers at the Los Angeles criminal and entertainment law firm Black Lane Law .

Fifteen years ago, former New York federal prosecutor Ted Black (Stephen Amell) joined forces with his old buddy Stuart Lane (Josh McDermitt), to build L.A. law firm Black Lane Law that specializes in criminal and entertainment law.

Rising star Erica Rollins (Lex Scott Davis) works for Ted Black. She’s shrewd enough to test the loyalty of her associates only to admire some of them for not having any.

Like the original legal drama Suits, which was set in New York but filmed all nine seasons in Toronto, Suits: L.A. is set in Los Angeles but shooting the pilot in Vancouver.

If picked up, Suits: L.A. would be a Suits-universe series like the CSI and NCIS franchises which feature new characters in new locations.

The original Suits ended four+ years ago with its 2019 series finale on the USA Network but found new life after Netflix acquired the rights to eight of the nine seasons and started streaming them late last June.
