‘Notorious’ is FINALLY premiering tonight, Sept, 22, and it’s going to be your new TV obsession. From the sensational cast, to what’s going down in the premiere, here’s everything you need to know before watching!
*What is Notorious about?
Notorious follows the lives of Julia George and Jake Gregorian, a TV producer and defense attorney who work together to make headlines and control the media. Things get really complicated when one of Jake’s clients, Oscar Keaton, becomes the prime suspect in his wife’s murder.
*The show stars some very familiar faces.
Piper Perabo and Daniel Sunjata lead the cast as Julia George and Jake Gregorian. The cast is rounded out by Ryan Guzman, Aimee Teegarden, Kevin Zegers, J. August Richards, and Kate Jennings Grant.
*Notorious is premiering in a key time slot.
Because of Kerry Washington’s pregnancy, Scandal season6 was pushed to midseason. That meant there was a huge hole in the TGIT block. To fill that gap, Notorious was placed in the Thursday night 9 p.m. block, but it’s not a part of TGIT.
*Is Notorious worth watching?
HollywoodLife.com has seen the premiere, and it’s awesome. It’s fun, juicy, and full of twists and turns. Piper is a total boss as Julia, and she commands the screen. Daniel is charming, as always. Notorious fills the void left by Scandal with an insane thrill ride that will leave your jaw on the floor every episode.
*The show is based on Chris Brown’s lawyer!
Notorious is based on the real-life working relationship between criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and Larry King Live news producer Wendy Walker. Mark’s list of notable clients include Chris Brown, Michael Jackson and Winona Ryder.
