USA Network Renews 'Suits' For Fifth Season

Suits - Season 4

USA Network announced today a 16-episode fifth season renewal of the hit original drama SUITS. Currently airing its fourth season, SUITS continues to be a top 10 summer scripted series in P18-49 (1.6 million), P25-54 (1.7 million), and total viewers, averaging nearly 4 million. The midseason finale is scheduled for Wednesday, August 20 at 9/8c.

“SUITS continues to fire on all cylinders, delivering provocative storytelling and complex characters that viewers can’t get enough of,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “With some of the best writing on television, and a brilliant ensemble cast, we anticipate a spectacular fifth season for a series that has become a marquee property for USA.”

SUITS centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht, "Love and Other Drugs"). This season saw a major shift at the firm that left Harvey at odds with his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (SAG Award nominee Patrick J. Adams, “Rosemary’s Baby”) who left to head to Wall Street as an investment banker. As the series builds to its summer finale, Mike has returned to Pearson Specter to resume his place beside Harvey, but Louis’ (Rick Hoffman, "Samantha Who”) secret threatens to unravel the firm. The series also stars Gina Torres ("Firefly”), Sarah Rafferty (“Brothers & Sisters”) and Meghan Markle ("Fringe").

Interview: Vanessa Marcil

Stranded In Paradise

Emmy®-Award winning actress Vanessa Marcil is no stranger to the Hallmark Brand. In 2009, she starred in the Hallmark Channel Original movie The Nanny Express. Five years later, she is back starring in a brand new original movie entitled Stranded in Paradise. Vanessa Marcil plays Tess, a driven executive whose disastrous business trip to a beautiful island turns into an unexpected new beginning. Stranded In Paradise, based on Lori Copeland's novel of the same name, will premiere on Hallmark Channel, Saturday, August 9 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C).

Vanessa was kind enough to sit down with us to discuss why she became involved with the project, how close to home her character is and what message she would like viewers to take away from the movie.

Pop Culture Principle – What was it about the script for Stranded in Paradise that made you want to be part of this project?

Vanessa Marcil – I am such a big self-proclaimed nerd. I started out in the theater at age 5, so I am very into characters. When I read a character and it resonates with me in one way or another, then I know it’s hitting something inside of me. I was reading this script and it had no attachment to it at the time. It came from a book that my older sister loved. When I read it, I was completely moved by it because it’s basically my sister.
