EXCLUSIVE: NBC‘s Suits: L.A. drama pilot will feature guest appearances by John Amos (Roots, Good Times), Victoria Justice and Kevin Weisman (Alias). The project is an expansion of the Suits universe from Aaron Korsh.

Suits L.A. centers on Ted Black (Stephen Amell), a former federal prosecutor from New York, who has reinvented himself representing the most powerful clients in Los Angeles after joining forces with his old buddy Stuart Lane (Josh McDermitt) to build Black Lane Law, which specializes in criminal and entertainment law.

The firm is at a crisis point and to survive Ted must embrace a role he held in contempt his entire career. He is surrounded by a group of characters who test their loyalties to both Ted and each other while they can’t help but mix their personal and professional lives. All of this is going on while events from years ago slowly unravel, leading Ted to leave behind everything and everyone he loved.

Lex Scott Davis, Bryan Greenberg and Troy Winbush also star.

Amos is playing himself as a client at Ted’s firm who also has a longstanding friendship with Ted. Justice is playing Dylan Pryor, a young movie star who’s confident and ambitious. She’s on the way up and looking to be represented by Ted. Weisman is playing Lester Thompson, a smart and powerful man who is used to getting his way. He’s just been charged with murder and has to listen to others to stay out of prison.

Suits: L.A. is not a reboot or revival of the original USA Network series but a brand extension in the vein of the CSI and NCIS franchises featuring new characters in a new location.

Victoria Mahoney directs and executive produces the pilot. UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, is the studio. The team also includes original Suits casting director Bonnie Zane.

He also played Admiral Percy Fitzwallace on NBC’s Emmy-winning series The West Wing, co-starred with Eddie Murphy in Coming to America, the film Because of Charley, and Me Time with Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg. He’s currently working on a biopic with his son, KC Amos. John Amos is repped by Buchwald.

Justice is best known for leading the Nickelodeon series Victorious. She recently starred in two Netflix films, Perfect Pairing (2022) and Afterlife of the Party (2021). Later this year, she will be seen co-starring in the thriller Depravity. She is repped by UTA.
