"Suit Up" is a web series about a college football franchise, which loses its sponsor after a scandal. So, the university hires a crisis manager named Jim Dunnigan (Marc Evan Jackson) to fix their reputation and get a new sponsor.
I love Marc Evan Jackson, and this show is a perfect fit for his dry humor. Jackson always does a great job of playing characters with disproportionately high self-confidence. And some of the best gags in the show come from his character adjusting to the southern university football culture.
Considering it's a web series, it's very well made. You can tell its made on a budget, but the acting was really good, and I liked the story lines.
I wish Suit Up could/would be fleshed out into an aired on TV series. It boasts a compelling storyline and vivid characters. Marc Evan Jackson is perfection and Brian Thomas Smith is certainly one to watch.
