USA NETWORK GOES TO COURT WITH "SUITS RECRUITS: CLASS ACTION" SECOND SCREEN EXPERIENCE

Digital Sequel Enables Fans to Join Pearson Darby and Tackle a New Case, Sponsored by Lexus

NEW YORK - July 16, 2013 - USA Network is inviting SUITS fans to join Suits Recruits: Class Action, a multi-platform social game kicking off this afternoon before the show's third season premiere tonight at 10/9c. Over five weeks, self-proclaimed "Suitors" will play as first year associates, just like Mike Ross (series star Patrick J. Adams), dealing with the latest power struggles and office intrigue at the firm, while helping solve a new case. Fans can get started via www.suitsrecruits.com on their desktop or mobile devices to access case details, interact with characters and view exclusive webisodes. When that day's game is finished, the interactive story continues on Twitter where fans can converse with the characters in real time.

Building on the storyline of last year's Suits Recruits: Class Action, this experience assigns fans to work on a new case with one of the firm's important clients, Wendigo. Suitors will watch with more than 15 custom videos, which were shot on the set of SUITS and written by the show's writers room. As part of their work, fans can get around New York City by engaging the services of the official vehicle of Pearson Darby, the Lexus LS F sport. Pearson Darby will award one of the Suits Recruits "attorneys" with a $25,000 bonus for their legal work.

Fans looking for an even more immersive social experience can follow their favorite SUITS characters on Twitter for Suits After Hours. Followers of @HarveyS_Suits, @MikeR_Suits, @LouisL_Suits, @DonnaP_Suits, @JessicaP_Suits and @RachelZ_Suits will see the characters converse with each other, respond to their Suits Recruits associates about the Wendigo case and reference the on-air storyline.

USA created Suits Recruits: Class Action in conjunction with Ralph, a creative agency specializing in creating content for the entertainment industry, 30 Ninjas, award winning creators of interactive stories, and Social Samba, the leader when it comes to bringing characters into the social fabric. The project was overseen by series executive producers Doug Liman and David Bartis, and SUITS creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh.

SUITS fans can also access an exclusive second screen experience, USA Sync, sponsored by Lexus, at http://www.usanetwork.com/suits/social/sync as they watch each episode of the show this season. Viewers can unlock more about Pearson Darby and its brilliant legal team, as well as access exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and commentary.

SUITS stars Gabriel Macht as legendary law partner Harvey Specter, who takes a gamble on hiring Mike Ross, played by SAG Award(R)-nominee Patrick J. Adams. A brilliant associate with a photographic memory, Mike is missing just one thing - a law degree. Bonded by this secret, the irrepressible duo navigates the fast-paced, high-stakes world of Manhattan corporate law and does whatever it takes to remain undefeated. SUITS also stars Gina Torres, Meghan Markle, Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman. Guest stars this season include Michelle Fairley, Amanda Schull, Gary Cole, Conleth Hill and Adam Godley.

From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh ("The Deep End"). Doug Liman (COVERT AFFAIRS, the "Bourne" trilogy, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith") and David Bartis (COVERT AFFAIRS, "The O.C.") of Hypnotic, and Jon Cowan ("Private Practice") also serve as executive producers. Gene Klein (COVERT AFFAIRS), Daniel Arkin ("90210") and Anton Cropper ("Fairly Legal") serve as co-executive producers. SUITS is shot on location in Toronto, ON.
