As it heads into its fifth season, USA Network’s Suits is getting a South Korean Remake, NBCUniversal has confirmed.
Yvonne Pilkington, senior vp formats & production at NBCUniversal International, said:
“This deal further cements our interest in broadening our activity in the vibrant Asian market. Having recently acquired Korean non-scripted formats for international distribution (Hidden Singer and Where Are We Going, Dad?), we are excited to announce Suits Korea as our first scripted format deal in Asia.”
David Kim, managing director of EnterMedia Pictures, added:
“We are very excited for Suits and fans of the show. This will be the first-ever adaptation of this U.S. show in Korea as well as in Asia, and many U.S. scripted shows have been very popular amongst Korean audiences.”
Suits Season 5 premieres June 24 on USA. The network has yet to cancel or renew the legal drama for Season 6. Stay tuned.
