Notorious, one of the few pilots we’ve reviewed this summer that offers something genuinely new and exciting, officially hits our screens on Thursday, Sept. 22 on ABC.

Audacious, sexy and sometimes a little eyebrow-raising, Notorious introduces us to best friends Julia and Jake. Both work in the media spotlight, but while Jake is a smart and charismatic defence attorney who makes a living  protecting (or feeding to the wolves, depending on the situation) LA’s glitterati, Julia is a powerhouse TV producer who benefits from Jake’s clients. If you’ve ever seen wildlife documentaries featuring Orcas punting seals through the air for fun then you’ll have a good handle on this duo’s relationship.

While ABC teases that Julia and George attempt to “control the media, the justice system and ultimately each other,” they do carry a strict code that keeps their unique and at times perilous friendship intact. The rule is simple. Despite the many lies they spin — or reveal to the public — on their path to creating the next day’s headlines, or swaying public opinion, they will never lie to each other.

But with in an environment of wavering morality, is this a promise these friends can really keep?

In addition to stars Daniel Sunjata (Graceland) as Jake, and Piper Perabo (Covert Affairs) as Julia, there series also stars Kate Jennings Grant as Louise Herrick the brilliant host of Louise Herrick Live, whose behind-the-scenes antics cause trouble wherever she goes.

Meanwhile, LHL’s junior producer, Megan Byrd (Sepideh Moafi), is a street-smart journalism school grad responsible for scheduling and managing guests. Julia’s eager-to-please production assistant and son of the network president, Ryan Mills (Ryan Guzman), will do whatever it takes to climb the ladder at LHL. Jake’s brother and law partner, Bradley Gregorian (J. August Richards) is an alpha male whose focus on justice conflicts with Jake’s objectives. Ella Benjamin (Aimee Teegarden) is fresh out of law school and loyal to a fault.

The pilot episode kicks off the action when billionaire playboy and social media mogul Oscar Keaton (Kevin Zegers) is accused of fleeing a crime scene, and turns to Jake for help.

The game is officially on.

Notorious was created and written by Josh Berman and Allie Hagan with Berman as Showrunner.

Executive producers are Josh Berman, Jeff Kwatinetz, Josh Barry, Kenny Meiselas, Mark Geragos, Wendy Walker, Jennifer Cecil, Mike Listo.

Co-executive producers are Allie Hagan, Terrence Coli, and Tom Mularz.

We’ve got a collection of just-released cast photos to share in our gallery below.
