The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
With the network’s longrunning Burn Notice off the air, Korsh’s Suits is a worthy successor to assume the USA throne. And the 46-year-old’s slick legal drama has something for everyone: Not interested in the cases? There’s the internal politicking and maneuvering at the law firm. Not enticed by that? Maybe the twisted web of romantic entanglements is a better fit for you. Since 2011, Suits has captured high-profile guest stars (Game of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley) and landed the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps — it’s one of his favorite shows — for a cameo on the midseason return in 2014. The series is averaging a robust 5.7 million viewers per episode, including DVR.
