Pearson, the Gina Torres-focused Suits spinoff has been canceled at USA Network. This comes after the show failed to find its footing in linear ratings. It aired its last episode over a month ago.
The series “centered around the world of recently disbarred NYC powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson (Torres) as she adjusts to down and dirty Chicago politics. Newly appointed as Chicago Mayor Bobby Novak’s (Morgan Spector) right-hand fixer, Jessica is quickly embroiled in a crooked and dangerous new world where every action has far-reaching consequences. With her compulsion to win, Jessica is forced to reconcile her unstoppable drive with her desire to do the right thing–two things very much at odds.”
Torres was joined by Chantel Riley, Isabel Arraiza, Bobby Golec, Simon Kassianides, Bethany Joy Lenz and Eli Goree.
She executive produced with Suits creator/EP Aaron Korsh, Doug Liman, David Barts, Hypnotic’s Gene Klein and Daniel Arkin. Universal Cable Productions was the studio.
