Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) is back, but instead of fighting her battles in court, she's going to fight them in Chicago's City Hall.
On Suits, we saw Jessica try to take down the mayor of Chicago to save her aunt's building, but she ended up taking a job with him instead in an effort to clean up his administration from the inside out. On Pearson, newly appointed as Mayor Bobby Novak's (Morgan Spector) right-hand fixer, Jessica's going to have to figure out how to use the legal smarts she and Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) perfected in New York to benefit the city of Chicago instead of the billionaires of Wall Street.
It also looks like while she's adjusting to the world of local politics, Jessica's going to have to figure out how to win when she's no longer the boss. Other key players (sometimes on her side and sometimes going toe to toe with her) are Bethany Joy Lenz's (One Tree Hill) Keri Allen, an ambitious city attorney and Eli Goree's (Riverdale) Derrick Mayes, the mayor's young press secretary who shares Jessica's mission to make the world a better place.
Pearson does not yet have a premiere date.
