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.

Suits and Suits: L.A. writer and creator Korsh executive produces alongside David Bartis, Doug Liman and Gene Klein, who were EPs on the original series. 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.

Emmy nominee Amos rose to stardom in the lead role of James Evans on the hit CBS sitcom Good Times and in the role of Kunta Kinte on the groundbreaking miniseries Roots. 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.

Best known for his role in the hit series Alias, Weisman has also co-starred in Hulu’s Runaways, HBO’s Emmy-nominated comedy series Hello Ladies and Scorpion on CBS. Having appeared in more than 40 shows, his credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Blacklist and David Kelley’s Amazon Studios drama Goliath opposite Billy Bob Thornton and William Hurt. His feature credits include Kevin Smith’s cult classic Clerks 2, Michael Bay’s Gone in Sixty Seconds, and Rob Reiner’s indie Flipped. He is repped by IAG and Link Entertainment.

We interviewed Victoria Justice because we think you’ll like her picks at these prices. Victoria is a paid spokesperson for International Delight. E! has affiliate relationships, so we may get a commission if you purchase something through our links. Items are sold by the retailer, not E!.

The key to making the most of Coachella is preparation. Not sure where to get started? Victoria Justice is here to help. From her go-to beauty must-haves she’s been using for years to her ultimate self-care essentials for those moments of relaxation amidst the excitement, Victoria has you covered.

In an exclusive E! interview, Victoria opens up about releasing new music, navigating her 30s, and teaming up with International Delight. Victoria’s insights are just what you need for Coachella and beyond.

E!: You always stun at coachella. What are your tips for creating the perfect, unique festival look?
VJ: I would say for Coachella, anything goes. The brightest, craziest colors, patterns and prints, anything you want to do. Just go for it and have fun with it. It’s also so important to wear shoes that you’re comfortable in because of all the walking!

E!: What are you looking forward to from Coachella 2024?
VJ: This year at Coachella, my go-to spot to beat the heat and find shade will be at the International Delight Cold Foam House. I’m so excited to partner with International Delight this year. They’re bringing an immersive multisensory flavor experience to festival grounds.

E!: Do you have any plans to releasing more music. Are there hints you can give your fans about what we can look forward to?
VJ: Yes, absolutely. My focus is on music right now and I will be releasing new music very soon! As far as musical direction, I feel like I’m always going to stay true lyrically and sonically to what feels authentic to me. I have a song coming out that’s very, you know, stripped down with guitar and vibey, and one that’s dancier. Sonically, it still sounds like me and under the pop umbrella, but lyrically they’re all very honest and true to where I’m at.

E!: Do you have any goals you would like to achieve in your 30s? What are you most looking forward to in the rest of your 30s?
VJ: I would like to put out a full length album, that’s a goal of mine. I want to make more movies and do more acting projects that I think are cool and stretch me in different ways. And traveling more, definitely something I want to do! I’m really looking forward to being a mom— which sounds so crazy, and starting my own family eventually.

E!: What makes you smile the most? What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received that has helped inspire you in your journey?
VJ: Friends & family make me smile the most. And also the people who have been supporting me for a long time definitely make me smile, with the love that they’ve shown me over the years consistently. I wanna make them proud. They mean a lot to me. Music, art, fashion, being in nature, and good food all make me smile. Best advice, I would say is “Stay true to you. Follow your own gut and own intuition.”

E!: Last year, you were in your #SentimentalGirlSummer era. What’s your vibe/era for this year?
VJ: I mean, I’m in my 30s now! I’m 31, so thirty, flirty and thriving! That’s the vibe going forward! Musically, I feel empowered and I’m really coming into my own as a woman and just owning all those things that come with that. Just sharing and being my most authentic self. I think authenticity is the overall “vibe.”

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hair spray and the electric toothbrush. We asked actress and singer Victoria Justice — who recently partnered with Arm & Hammer — about her lengthening drugstore mascara, sunscreen she’s been wearing since Victorious days, and “chic” pants she now owns in multiple colors.

Belif the True Cream Moisturizing Bomb
I love this stuff. I’ve been using it for years now. I think my mom actually told me about it. Even if I don’t get a good night’s sleep, I’ll apply this and my skin looks more hydrated and youthful. It’s the perfect consistency, too: nice and thick but not too heavy.

Telescopic Original Mascara – Blackest Black
My mom also introduced me to this mascara years ago when it first came out. I’ve tried others since, but I haven’t really loved another mascara as much as this one. The formula really lengthens lashes while separating them, and it’s buildable. The wand is super-thin, so I can really dig into my lashes and apply the mascara fully. This is really the only mascara I use.

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm – Pomegranate
I’ve been a Burt’s Bees fan forever. If I don’t want to wear makeup but still want a hint of color on my lips, the pomegranate lip balm is perfect. It brings life to my face while looking very natural and while moisturizing my lips. It’s my old standby. I’ve been using it for years.

Revision Skincare Intellishade Original Tinted Moisturizer SPF 45
I’ve been using this for years, too. I’m pretty sure since dating back to the Victorious days. I’m huge about sun protection and wear a baseball cap any day I’m in the sun. I wear this sunscreen every day to protect from sun damage and aging and whatnot. It also gives me a little bit of coverage for those days I’m not working and don’t want to wear heavy foundation. It’s super-lightweight and a little bit dewy.

Garden of Life Women’s Probiotics Daily Care Capsules
I’m like a crazy supplement lady. I’m all about them. Good health starts from the inside — most importantly, your gut. I think taking a probiotic every day is important for gut health, mental health, and living an overall balanced life. I’ve been taking the Garden of Life ones for years. I can count on the quality, and they have so many varieties (like ones for mood or immunity). This one’s my favorite. I take three every day: two in the morning and another one in the afternoon.

Madewell Harlow Wide-Leg Pants
I was walking past Madewell recently and saw these in the window. I was like, Oh, what are those pants? I need them. I got them in multiple different colors that day: navy, black, camel, white, and a sort of dark-greenish color. They’re the most comfortable pants. They’re casual but a little more chic than a regular pair of jeans. I wear them all the time now with my Converse platform sneakers.

Converse Run Star Hike Sneaker – Low Top
I’m all about being comfortable, and these are so comfy. I wear them constantly because they give me a little lift without having to wear heels. The design is interesting with the chunky black and brown soles. It keeps outfits unique.

Siete Sea Salt Tortilla Chips
I have a friend who always comes over with new healthy options for chips. They’re kind of hit or miss, but this one was really a hit. They’re a great gluten-free alternative, light, and have lots of flavor. They don’t taste like a healthy chip alternative at all. They’re really delicious. The original chips with sea salt are my favorite. I eat them all the time with homemade hummus, but you could really eat them with anything.

Arm & Hammer Power Sheets
I try to have an eco-conscious routine day-to-day. I use a reusable water bottle, carpool, and bring reusable bags when I go grocery shopping. This is an amazing addition to that routine because it’s liquidless and eliminates plastic bottle waste. The sheets come in a small, recyclable box that’s super-convenient when I’m on the go. I throw them in my suitcase when I’m traveling or in my tote when I’m running out to do laundry. My clothes really get the same clean feeling that I would with regular liquid detergent, but it’s so simple. I just tear the sheet in half, throw it in the washer, and I’m good to go.

Victoria Justice is in her comeback era. The triple threat is soft-launching her music career with heartfelt singles 10 years after the finale of her iconic Nickelodeon show, Victorious. Even during her hiatus from the music industry, singing has always been on Justice’s mind. “I’ve missed making music. I love both [acting and singing] for different reasons, but music is definitely what I want to focus on at the moment,” she says in an exclusive interview with Her Campus.

Like most child actors who can hold a tune, Justice was encouraged to branch into the music industry during her Nickelodeon days. She put out two commercial singles called “Gold” and “Shake” in 2013 that clearly sound more like her character, Tori Vega, than Victoria. She vows that she’s changed as an artist since her debut singles boomed through tween clothing store speakers a decade ago.

“I didn’t even really want to record ‘Gold.’ The label that I was with at the time really wanted me to do it. It’s a fun song and I’m glad that I did it, but it wasn’t my first choice for a single,” she admits. “The things that I’m writing about now are much more personal, honest, and emotional. As I’ve gotten older, I’m willing to share more parts of myself.”

That transparency comes through while scrolling through Justice’s social media accounts. Her Instagram feed is full of digital postcards from her summer in Thailand spent shooting her upcoming thriller Sic. Her time abroad reinforced her commitment to protecting the environment. “No matter where I go, I still try to have a conscious routine. I carpool when I can, recycle, use Arm & Hammer’s Power Sheets to reduce my plastic bottle waste, and use reusable grocery bags.”

While she’s sharing more and talking about the environmental causes she believes in, Justice does choose to keep her love life private. She describes herself as someone who’s “always been a hopeful romantic” behind closed doors. “One of my favorite shows is The Bachelorette. I always daydream about love,” she laughs.

Her love for the show bleeds into her music. She wrote her latest single, “Only A Stranger,” after watching a particularly dreamy episode. “I went down to my music room and this little piano melody just came out of me. Then I just started singing those lyrics: ‘I want someone to think I’m special / Give me flowers for no reason.’ From that, the whole song was born,” she says.

The song’s lyrics are her daydreams put to paper. “I’m obviously longing for love in this song, but I’m also hopeful. I’m wondering, What is my future love like? I wanted to put my thoughts in musical form,” she says, a true departure from the palatable pop songwriting that drove “Gold.”

Justice’s evolved approach to songwriting has been shaped by artists who aren’t afraid to be vulnerable with their feelings. The cover art for “Only A Stranger” pays homage to one of her favorite albums of all time: Billy Joel’s The Stranger. “My mom introduced me to Billy Joel at a young age, and we’ve always bonded over our love for him and his music,” she says. “When I wrote ‘Only A Stranger,’ I felt like it was only right to honor one of my favorite albums ever. It just seemed to really work creatively for the song.” Justice may have grown up in the spotlight, but she’s still a fangirl at heart. “The fact that [Joel] posted about it, acknowledged it, and knows that I exist is the craziest thing ever,” she says.

“Only A Stranger” is the latest in a row of five singles Justice has released since 2020. She’s not worried about how many songs she’s putting out; she’s focused on enjoying the process behind making them in the first place. “The fun thing about songwriting is that it’s a puzzle that you’re slowly piecing together,” she says. “You don’t always know where it’s going to go or even what it’s going to be called. Somehow, at the end of the day, you’ve created an entire song out of a thought or a sentence.”

Justice is taking her time to work out her latest puzzle: her upcoming debut album. There’s no release date on the horizon, but she assures her fans that the album is “definitely in the works, slowly but surely. I just want it to be the most honest representation of me and who I am as an artist today. It’s going to be vulnerable with a lot of that singer-songwriter vibe. But I also love fun and sexy songs that empower women, and I love songs that people can vibe and dance to. I think it’s going to be all of the above. I’m excited to keep experimenting and fleshing it out.”

Inspiration hit Victoria Justice for her new song “Only A Stranger” in the most unexpected way.

“To be honest, this sounds so cheesy, but I think I had just finished watching an episode of The Bachelorette or something,” Justice, 30, exclusively told Us Weekly on Friday, August 25, while promoting her partnership with Arm & Hammer. “I was just at the piano and I just started messing around and I came up with that little piano melody that you hear in the beginning, and then the words just kind of came out of me.”
In the new single, Justice sings “I want someone to think I’m special / Give me flowers for no reason / Yeah, I want something sentimental / Here I go again daydreaming.”As Justice began to experiment with lyrics and the rhythm while messing around with the keys, the song just “kind of went from there.” The concept of people being strangers one day and falling in love the next really spoke to Justice’s romantic side.

“I feel like a lot of us do this when we’re single or when we are romantics and are longing for love. It’s like we tend to daydream about who this person is, and they really could be someone that we could meet tomorrow,” she explained. “As of right now, they’re just a stranger on the street. But it’s such a crazy thought that years from now, they’re not going to be a stranger at all. They could be the person that is getting down on one knee to you.”

While she initially came up with the ballad thanks to her love for the ABC dating series, Justice confessed that she wanted to share a more vulnerable facet of herself that she hadn’t in the past.

“I’ve never really shared this side of myself with people and my feelings on love and where I’m with that in my life,” she admitted. “It was super vulnerable, but also I felt like it was something, even though it’s emotional, I still feel like it’s hopeful and I feel like it’s something that a lot of people can relate to. And so I felt like it was important for me to put it out there.”

The Bachelorette wasn’t the only thing that inspired Justice while writing “Only a Stranger.” The singer alsopaid homage to music icon Billy Joel, whom she and her mother listened to throughout Justice’s childhood. For the song’s artwork, she recreated Joel’s The Stranger album cover. Joel, 74, shared his approval by reposting the cover on his social media.

“The fact that Billy Joel posted about it was the coolest thing ever,” she gushed to Us. “I can’t really believe [he knows] I exist. And the fact that he acknowledged my song, what an honor, it made my life.”

As Justice releases new music, she also spends her time advocating for the environment and reducing her carbon footprint. She recently partnered up with Arm and Hammer as they released their new eco-friendly Power Sheets detergent — which have been a “game changer” for the former Nickelodeon star as she travels frequently.

“It’s a liquidless detergent, so it’s amazing because you don’t have to lug around a heavy bottle. There’s no more drippy mess and there’s no more plastic bottle waste,” she explained. “It comes in a compact recyclable box, and they’re incredible.”

Some things just feel synonymous with summer — like an oversize pool float, freshly cut watermelon, or the vision of sun rays reflecting through your rearview mirror on a late afternoon drive. But for Victoria Justice, the star finds that few things feel more quintessential to the season than a refreshing moscato. “I personally love a nice, sweet wine and find that [moscato] is the perfect drink for summer,” Justice tells POPSUGAR. “I’m a girl who loves a good charcuterie board and [having] a nice glass of wine while hanging out with my girls — whether that’s having either a fun night out or a chill movie night in.”

The multihyphenate admits that when she’s not working on her next film project or jet setting off on another trip (her Instagram is well-documented with seemingly endless travel adventures), Justice simply enjoys playing host for her loved ones at home — which usually requires that she keep her kitchen well-stocked with all sorts of snacks and spirits. Naturally, when the opportunity arose for the star to collaborate with Yellow Tail (the drink brand of choice in the Justice household), the partnership felt like an organic fit.

“I have been a Yellow Tail fan for a while. I just feel like they’re super affordable and the quality of the wine is just amazing for the price,” says Justice. “This is honestly the perfect drink for any summer occasion.” The actress’s latest campaign with Yellow Tail aims to highlight the brand’s newest (and sweetest!) moscato concoction to date, which for Justice, really has proven to be an omnipresent staple in her home — whether she’s hosting a game night with her girlfriends (things get pretty competitive during their regular Monopoly Deal competitions), watching the sunset in her LA-based backyard, or just pairing the drink with one of her famous charcuterie boards.

We had the chance to chat with Justice about her new collaboration with Yellow Tail Moscato, top summer hosting tips, and all of the products she can’t live without — from a tinted moisturiser to a durable suitcase and more.

Victoria Justice proves victorious this summer thanks to her Moscato Fizz cocktail.

“I can’t think of a better drink during summer,” the actress, 30, exclusively tells Us Weekly. “There are sweet, subtle notes of melon, passionfruit and kiwi — it’s like taking a sip of your own tropical paradise.”

Justice, whose recipe makes one drink, also noted that the Moscato Fizz is a great addition when you’re relaxing poolside or hanging out with friends.

The Victorious alum previously offered insight into her favorite beverages while promoting her 2022 rom-com A Perfect Pairing, in which she starred as an executive for a wine company.

“I don’t know much about wine,” Justice confessed during a joint “Jake’s Takes” interview with costar Adam Demos in May 2022. “When I buy wine, I buy it based on what label is the coolest and what art I like. I’m like, ‘Oh, this looks cool!’”

Demos, 38, chimed in: “My advice is don’t act like you know what you’re talking about and just enjoy it or don’t. Like, it’s annoying when people start talking about it. If it tastes good, happy days!”

In Netflix’s A Perfect Pairing, Justice leaves her Los Angeles home for Australia in hopes of recruiting a local vineyard to join her firm’s umbrella of winemakers. While down under, Justice’s Lola gets mistaken for a ranch hand by sheep farmer Max (Demos).

“The traveling part is so fun,” Justice previously told Us in March about visiting new places for various films like A Perfect Pairing. “The last couple [of] movies I did, one was in South Africa, the other in Australia. I might be doing one in Thailand coming up. So, it’s really exciting to get to step into new parts of the world and explore those cultures and then also create these new characters.”

When Justice isn’t busy on set, she’s found that the Moscato Fizz — a bubbly take on Yellow Tail’s wine — hits the spot as her go-to cocktail for the summer months.

Keep reading to get Justice’s recipe to mix up a Moscato Fizz:

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz club soda
  • 2.5 oz Yellow Tail Moscato
  • .75 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz of favorite berry liqueur or spoonful of favorite jam
  • 2 fresh herbs of your choice, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Fill a stemless wineglass with ice. Pour in club soda.
  2. Combine Moscato, lemon juice and either liqueur or jam in a shaker. Shake over ice for about 30 seconds, then pour over club soda.
  3. Garnish with fresh herbs of your choice.

You know summer is in full swing when you’ve got beach days and pool hangs on your calendar. While many people are looking forward to jet-setting to wanderlust locations the next few months, Victoria Justice’s plans for vacation SZN are a lot closer to home. The actor tells Elite Daily what she’s looking forward to most this summer is just “hanging out with friends” and chilling in a hammock. And for any girls night in, she says you need two things: an Insta-worthy charcuterie board and a glass of wine.

The 30-year-old multi-hyphenate, who is teaming up with Yellow Tail for the launch of the brand’s new moscato, calls it the “perfect summer drink,” thanks to its hints of pear and cantaloupe. It’s a must for Justice’s relaxing nights at home — she’ll enjoy a glass while listening to her song of the summer, Doja Cat’s “Attention,” or marathoning Love Is Blind on Netflix — and the Victorious alum is planning to pour one out while watching her former castmates in the Zoey 102 movie when it comes out on July 27. (Justice, who played Lola on Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101 from 2005 to 2008, wasn’t able to participate in the upcoming reboot due to her busy schedule but tells Elite Daily that the show still holds a special place in her heart. “I’m just really rooting for all of them, and I’m so excited for the movie,” she says.)

Below, Justice shares more wine pairings for different summer activities you may be planning, her secret ingredient for the perfect hang, and her idea of the ultimate “treat yourself” day. [continue reading]
