Popular legal drama “Suits” has been renewed for a 9th season at USA Network, but this also marks its final season. It will only have 10 episodes, making it the shortest season since its 2011 inception.
The show stars Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, Wendell Pierce, Amanda Schull, and Katherine Heigl. Past stars include Patrick J. Adams, Gina Torres, and Meghan Markle. Torres is also set to star in a spinoff centered on her character, Jessica Pearson, as she makes the move to Chicago. It was announced last week the spinoff would be titled “Pearson.”
Creator Aaron Korsh stated the following about the show:
“Though I know it isn’t true, it seems like only yesterday USA Network took a chance on an unestablished writer’s very first hour long script. These days that’s a common thing, but forty seven years ago when I first wrote the Untitled Korsh Project, nobody did it. Nobody except the people at USA and UCP. First and foremost I would like to thank Alex Sepiol and Dennis Kim, without whom SUITS would never have gotten made. I also cannot thank Bill McGoldrick, Jeff Wachtel, Bonnie Hammer, Chris McCumber, Ted Chervin, Dave Bartis, Gene Klein, Doug Liman, Dawn Olmstead and everyone at the network and studio enough for their dedication and support throughout the years. And to the exceptional writers, cast and crew – thank you for your passion and devotion, without which, SUITS would be nothing. And last but never least, to the fans who have stuck with the SUITS family through thick and thin, through can-openers and flashbacks – thank you for always speaking your mind. Without you, I might start to think I’m getting the hang of this writing thing. And once that happens, nobody wins. I look forward to enraging and hopefully sometimes delighting you with the final episodes. Finally, to my wife Kate and my children Cooper and Lucy. Thank you for enduring countless late nights and times away, for me to get to live my dream. I love you. Love, Aaron”
True Lies TV series in the works from McG
The classic Arnie movie is getting a TV adaptation made
McG (“Terminator Salvation”) is taking on more James Cameron, confirming he is working on a TV series adapted from the 1994 action-comedy “True Lies”. The series will be developed for the Disney+ streaming service.
McG spoke to Collider, stating “Well, right now my new thing for television is I’m doing ‘True Lies’ at Disney… which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about that story where you think you know your partner but you don’t.”
Of course what we all want to know is … will there be Arnie? “There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see.”
In the original “True Lies”, Schwarzenegger plays a secret agent in the film who struggles to find the right balance between his work and family life, where he has to lie to his wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) about his professional activities.
The original 1994 film, also starring Tom Arnold and Jamie Lee Curtis, was expected to be the first in a franchise – but director Cameron went cold on the idea after the events of 9/11, noting that terrorism wasn’t something to make light of anymore.
In the original, Harry Tasker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a sales Representative for a computer company, with a wife, Helen, and a daughter, Dana, with a house in the suburbs in Washington D.C. Or so everybody thinks. Harry is actually an agent of a private organization that hunts down any threats to the United States. While he is investigating a possible threat on the U.S., his wife Helen becomes lonely and starts to hang around another man, a used car salesman named Simon (Bill Paxton), so Harry secretly uses his organization’s equipment to monitor on his wife and her new friend. Harry must also worry about the threat on the U.S. Meanwhile, a middle eastern terrorist named Salim Abu Aziz, has formed his own terrorist network he calls “Crimson Jihad” and they are threatening to Nuke the U.S. if they do not get what they want. So, Harry must stop the terrorists and, hopefully, save his own personal life.
McG, who has carved out somewhat of a career for himself in recent years directing and/or producing various small-screen projects for Netflix, helmed “Terminator Salvation” – a sequel to Cameron’s grandiose ’80s classic “The Terminator”.

Undisputed rebooted for TV
Popular martial-arts movie series will continue on the box
Popular martial-arts movie series “Undisputed” – which kicked off in 2002 and has featured the likes of Ving Rhames, Wesley Snipes, Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins – is coming to TV.
Millennium and Empire Films, along with Isaac Florentine, director of the previous three films in the movie series, have set up a TV series adaptation, set to film in 2020 in Bulgaria.
The series, to be executive produced by Yaiv Lerner (“Rambo”), will follow the characters introduced in the film series- most notably, Yuri Boyka (Scott Adkins in the films), a Russian prison fighter on parole who seizes the opportunity to participate in the world’s biggest and most prestigious underground fighting tournament. Exposing the lucrative and intricate underbelly of fighting rings, Undisputed will reveal the microcosm of an expansionist international crime organization and connects everyone in it; those who participate in it, organize it, protect it, investigate it and collect the money. This is a world where every action has consequences.
Rouslan Ovtcharoff, Benjamin Jackendoff, Sean O’Kelly and Marc Bikindou will also be part of the producer’s committee on the project.
“There’s been a tremendous amount of buzz and presales interest around Undisputed the TV series, with buyers quick to recognize its broad commercial appeal,” said O’Kelly, founder of Empire. “As one of the most original and talented directors working today, Isaac Florentine will be sure to deliver the same riveting, high-octane action experience that Undisputed fans around the world have come to love and expect.”
Action-movie vet Florentine believes the TV series is a way to introduce the world of “Undisputed” up to a bigger audience.
“I am hoping that the mainstream American audience will finally discover the character of Yuri Boyka and like him the way he’s adored in the rest of the world”.
