USA NETWORK PRESENTS NEW ORIGINAL SERIES "SUITS" STARRING YOUNG HEARTTHROB PATRICK J. ADAMS SUITS Premieres Thursday, June 23 at 10/9c

Patrick J. Adams stars as Mike Ross in SUITS, the much-anticipated new drama series, which premieres Thursday, June 23 at 10/9c on USA Network.

Mike Ross (Adams) is a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout recruited by Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), one of Manhattan's top corporate lawyers as his new hotshot associate. Though he isn't a lawyer, this legal prodigy has a photographic memory, plus the street smarts of a hustler, which make Mike and Harvey an irrepressible duo.

A guest shot on the hit series "Pretty Little Liars" led Patrick to his current relationship with girlfriend Troian Bellisario and young readers will love him as well! A stage, film and television actor, Patrick has appeared in additional landmark series such as "Lost," "Friday Night Lights," "N.C.I.S.," "Lie To Me," and "Flash Forward," among others. Additionally, Patrick starred as twin brothers in the 2008 ABC pilot "Good Behavior," executive produced by "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas and starred in the pilot "The Dealership," opposite Tricia Helfer and William Devane.

Patrick's celebrated work in film includes supporting roles in the hit comedy "Old School," directed by Todd Phillips, "2:13," directed by Charles Adelman, and 2009 Berlin Film Festival competitor "Rage," directed by internationally-renowned filmmaker Sally Potter, in which Adams appeared alongside Judi Dench, Jude Law, Dianne Weist and Steve Buscemi. Additionally, Patrick starred in indie films such as, "The Waterhole," 2009 Slamdance entry "Weather Girl," and most recently, "6 Month Rule," directed by Blayne Weaver.

SUITS finds Mike becoming enmeshed in the unfamiliar world of corporate law and relying on Harvey and Rachel, the firm's best paralegal (Meghan Markle) and Harvey's no-nonsense assistant Donna (Sarah Rafferty), to make sure justice is served, while at the same time, continuing to hide his secret from the entire firm, including managing partner (Gina Torres) and Harvey's arch nemesis (Rick Hoffman) who seems intent on making Mike's life as difficult as possible.

A Toronto native, Patrick currently resides in Los Angeles when SUITS is not in production.
