Suits L.A. centers on Ted Black (Amell), a former federal prosecutor from New York, who has reinvented himself representing the most powerful clients in Los Angeles. His firm is at a crisis point, and in order to survive he must embrace a role he held in contempt his entire career. Ted 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 that led Ted to leave behind everything and everyone he loved.

Greenberg plays Rick Dodsen, Ted Black’s protege in the entertainment division of Black Lane Law. Slated to be promoted, Rick is determined to stay one step ahead of his rival, Erica Rollins (Davis).

Suits: L.A. is not a reboot or revival but a brand extension in the vein of the CSI and NCIS franchises featuring new characters in a new location.

Korsh executive produces alongside David Bartis, Doug Liman and Gene Klein, who were EPs with him on the original series. Victoria Mahoney directs and executive produces the pilot. UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, is the studio.

Greenberg is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Jake Jagielski in The CW’s One Tree Hill. He also starred in HBO series How To Make It In America, Friends With Benefits opposite Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, and in the fifth and sixth seasons of Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project for Hulu. He can next be seen in John Wells and Sherman Payne’s MGM+ series Emperor of Ocean Park, opposite Forest Whitaker. He recently made his directorial debut with Junction, starring Sophia Bush, Jamie Chung, Josh Peck, Ryan Eggold and Griffin Dunne. He’s repped by Gersh and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
