Pearson centers around the world of recently disbarred NYC powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson as she adjusts to down and dirty Chicago politics. Newly appointed as Chicago Mayor Bobby Novak's 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.
It is being reported that Pearson has been cancelled by USA Network after one season. The sad news comes less than two months after the legal drama's run ended, with its Septmber 18 freshman finale now acting as its series ender. While reviews of the show generally leaned towards the positive, it ultimately failed to attract a sizeable audience for the cable network.
A spin-off of Suits, the series stars Gina Torres as powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson, who has recently been disbarred and is learning to adjust to a big change in her life as she moves into the dirty Chicago politics scene. After being named as Mayor Bobby Novak's fixer, Jessica becomes entangled in a dangerous new world where the consequences for every action are very real. As she navigates this new territory, her desire to win conflicts with her nature to do what is right.
