5 Legal  Dramas That Could Rival 'Suits' Spinoff

White Collar

White Collar, another "Blue Sky" USA Network show set in New York, should be your first visit after Suits because it's tonally similar and features another great mentor-mentee connection. 

The Jeff Eastin-created sitcom stars Tim DeKay as FBI Special Agent Peter Burke and Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey, a brilliant forger and con artist who becomes Burke's informant and helps him stop white collar crimes. 

The Good Wife and The Good Fight

If we're being honest, Suits' legal aspects were never its best part — they provided a solid backdrop for the show's much stronger character-driven narratives and acted as a backbone.


Psych, another USA series that aired alongside Suits, centers on a man lying about his credentials. Like Mike, James Roday Rodriguez's Shawn Spencer is perceptive and can recall a strange amount of information in great detail. 


Suits and Fox's House have startling similarities. Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) plays Harvey, a highly bright man who knows he's superb at his job but is abrasive and neither empathetic or liked. 


Suits was established on a deception, and the show capitalized on the threat of office and legal community members discovering Mike wasn't a lawyer. Younger does something similar in publishing.
