No shame here,  I couldn’t wait to hear Gina Torres’s Suits spin-off (name still being held in a secret vault ha).  is now official, USA has given the series the green light.  If you’re a huge fan of Gina Torres like I have watching her as she made her way around Pearson Specter Litt offices on Suits. Anyways you know how exciting this is Jessica is finally starting her life in the Windy City by the way if you are already a fan of the series Suits (aired 2011) created by Aaron Korsh, most likely you’ve been waiting on its return to follow Jessica’s character as she heads out to her new Chicago adventure and a new career that’s rumored to be political.  For those of you who were not Suits fans…hey where have you been?  Anyways Suits finale returns March 28th please be sure to watch you, you don’t want to wait for Twitter to tell you how Jessica ended up in chicago do you?  Jessica won’t be alone some of her old law firm buddies Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), s), Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Mike Ross (Patrick J.

So excited about new additions and promotions of cast but it brings up questions with articles not mentioning Jessica Pearson’s significant other Jeff Malone rumored to be played DB Woodside (previously  played Jeff Malone on Suits)

This is getting old journalist, casting, or whomever. Just curious why does a character who’s a black woman boyfriend, husband whoever, get no mention…anywhere? And also disregard a previous cast member that’s been linked to her…can we do better than this?.

Anyway Suitors and Jessica Pearson’s Spin-offer’s (Did you like how I did that? ha) let’s get ready to visit the windy city..Yay!

Good Girls: Another Hit Show For NBC?

While scanning Twitter I came upon Good Girls starring Christina Hendricks, Retta, and Mae Whitman

from first glance it seemed interesting A quick summary: three woman fed up with life’s ills from relationships to children’s health issues, they were tired of not having enough money to meet those needs and so they decided to do something about it…yep I’m going leave you right there…don’t worry Feb 26th 10/9c you can find out the rest, but the great story line wasn’t all that’s noticeable the diverse faces. Nothing makes a show more inviting in my opinion than one that welcomes diversity, even more interested I scanned Good Girls IMDB page and nothing but beautiful diverse faces. If you want to see?  Here ya go: Good Girl Cast Not only the cast but their preview gave a feeling this show may have more than just  laughs, and laughs are great but since NBC picked a winner with their hit show “This is Us” which seems more like a family drama. If you seen the show (by the way it comes on right after ) you understand why there’s a great chance they have created another hit show in Good Girls.  An even greater thing is you will be able to make that determination soon, yes again on February 26th, so until than click the video below to watch the preview.

Yeah it looks like a winner…So, see you there Feb 26th 10/9c following This is Us?
