Well, they changed the name, and without even mentioning the original (horrible!) name;

‘Suits’ Jessica Pearson Spinoff Series Starring Gina Torres Gets Title

USA Network’s upcoming Suits spinoff series will be titled Pearson, after its lead character.

The long-untitled project, from UCP, Suits creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh and executive producer Daniel Arkin, is centered on powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) as she adjusts to the dirty world of Chicago politics.

Co-starring alongside Torres are Simon Kassianides, Morgan Spector, Bethany Joy Lenz, Chantel Riley, Isabel Arraiza and Eli Goree

I'm really looking forward to this, mainly to see Gina strut in fabulous clothes. However, I think the name of the show is still off. People coming over from Suits will easily get the reference but potential new viewers probably aren't going to be impressed much. Wonder why the producers didn't at least go with "Jessica Pearson"?

From Deadline's coverage of TCA:

During a panel discussion for the show, the project’s creators, Suits creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh and executive producer Daniel Arkin, talked about how the offshoot will stand on its own in comparison to the mothership series.

“Jessica is the link between Suits and Pearson,” Arkin said. “It has Suits DNA but we wanted the show’s concept to be grittier, raw, more real, showing more facets of her personality and life.”

While Jessica was always calling the shots on Suits, “we are seeing her behind the ball, not knowing everything (on Pearson,)” Korsh said. “People reject her for a change.”
