BBC Buys ‘Suits’ Following Netflix Success


The BBC has acquired Suits, the smash legal drama that was the most-watched show on Netflix last year.

The corporation has acquired a trio of titles from NBCUniversal Global TV Distribution including St. Denis Medical and The Best Man: The Final Chapters.

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).

It was picked up by Netflix last year and gained a huge following, racking up 57.7 billion minutes of viewing — the highest year-end total for streaming Nielsen had ever recorded.

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.”
