Previously, Korsh also talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the series,” I sat down to write something in the tone of Entourage that took place on Wall Street. What emerged when I was finished was an hour-long show. I wouldn’t say it was a thriller, but it was much more dramatic, with these plot twists and turns.”
“I certainly didn’t think in a million years that anybody would buy this show. I was just trying to write a sample that someone would maybe read and hire me off,” he added.
“It raised the stakes,” Korsh acknowledged. Because now Mike, who hadn’t graduated college, much less passed the bar, wasn’t just lying his way into a lucrative gig, “he was committing a crime,” said Korsh of Protagonist Mike Ross played by Patrick J. Adams. “and the law also gave us opportunities for all kinds of ethical dilemmas.”
