Suits | Preview (BBC)

The BBC has acquired all nine seasons of the hit American legal drama Suits; mockumentary St. Denis Medical; and the series continuation of the hit Best Man films, The Best Man: The Final Chapters, for BBC iPlayer and TV channels.

Set in a New York City law firm, Suits stars Patrick J. Adams (Old School) as Mike Ross, who uses his photographic memory to talk his way into a job as an associate working for successful ‘closer’ Harvey Spector, played by Gabriel Macht (Love & Other Drugs), despite being a college dropout who never attended law school.

Together they win lawsuits and close cases, while at the same time hiding Mike’s secret. Suits boasts a stellar ensemble cast which also includes Gina Torres (Westworld), Sarah Rafferty (Brothers & Sisters), Rick Hoffman (Billions), Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy), and Meghan Markle (Remember Me).

St. Denis Medical is a new workplace comedy set in an underfunded and understaffed Oregon hospital. At St. Denis Medical Centre, the dedicated doctors and nurses are trying their best to treat patients whilst maintaining their own sanity.

The series stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Allison Tolman (Fargo), Josh Lawson (Superstore), Mekki Leeper (The Sex Lives of College Girls), Kaliko Kauahi (Superstore), Kahyun Kim (9-1-1), and David Alan Grier (The Color Purple).

Based on the eponymous Universal film franchise written and directed by Malcom D. Lee, The Best Man: The Final Chapters catches up with Harper (Taye Diggs, All American), Robyn (Sanaa Lathan, Succession), Jordan (Nia Long, NCIS: Los Angeles), Lance (Morris Chestnut, Rosewood), Quentin (Terrence Howard, Empire), Shelby (Melissa De Sousa, Our Kind of People), Candace (Regina Hall Nine Perfect Strangers), and Murch (Harold Perrineau, The Rookie).

The series explores how each of their relationships have evolved and how past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance.

Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, says: “This is a really exciting and enjoyable trio of star-studded series: the hotly-anticipated comedy, St. Denis Medical, the sassy, romantic comedy-drama, The Best Man: The Final Chapters, and the smart and stylish legal drama, Suits. We couldn’t be more delighted to bring them all to BBC viewers.”

Suits lands Friday 10th May on BBC Three.
