BBC Acquires Suits & More


BBC has acquired three new titles, including all nine seasons of the hit U.S. legal drama Suits.

Set in a New York City law firm, Suits follows a scrappy young lawyer who uses his photographic memory to talk his way into a job as an associate under the successful Harvey Spector.

The company has also acquired St. Denis Medical, a new workplace comedy set in an underfunded and understaffed Oregon hospital, as well as The Best Man: The Final Chapters.

The shows will be available on BBC iPlayer and TV channels.

Sue Deeks, head of BBC program acquisition, said: “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.”
