According to Deadline, NBC has tapped The Wilds and Chicago Fire actor Troy Winbush to join Stephen Amell in the upcoming spin-off pilot of Suits: L.A, which will start its production later this month in Vancouver.

Winbush will be playing the character of former FBI agent and private detective Kevin, who’s an old friend to Amell’s Ted Black. Should the project secure an official series order, Winbush will be promoted from guest star to a recurring role. He will be joining previously announced cast members Josh McDermitt and Lex Scott Davis, who have been cast for the respective roles of Stuart Lane and Erica Rollins.

What to expect from the Suits spin-off?

“Suits: L.A. centers on Ted Black, a former federal prosecutor from New York, who has reinvented himself representing the most powerful clients in Los Angeles,” reads the logline. “His firm is at a crisis point, and in order to survive he must embrace a role he held in contempt his entire career. Ted is surrounded by a group of characters who test their loyalties to both Ted and each other while they can’t help but mix their personal and professional lives. All of this is going on while events from years ago slowly unravel that led Ted to leave behind everything and everyone he loved.”

Suits: LA hails from original series creator Aaron Korsh, who is executive producing with David Bartis, Doug Liman, and Gene Klein. The pilot will be directed and executive produced by Victoria Mahoney (The Old Guard 2).

The original series starred Patrick J. Adams, Gina Torres, Gabriel Macht, Meghan Markle, Amanda Schull, Dulé Hill, Rick Hoffman, and Sarah Rafferty. The series centered around Adams’ Mike Ross, a college dropout who has an incredible photographic memory. Despite not graduating from law school, he managed to become the newest associate of attorney Harvey Specter, who was instantly impressed by his skills and knowledge.
