The actress has booke a recurring role on Deception (initially titled Notorious, and then switched to Infamous, and now will be called Deception), which stars Meagan Good as detective Joanna Locasto, a female detective who returns undercover to the wealthy family she grew up in - as the maid's daughter - to solve the murder of the notorious heiress who was once her closest friend - celebutante Vivian Lawson.

The NBC series co-stars Laz AlonsoVictor Garber, Tate Donovan, and Katherine LaNasa co-starring.

Merkerson will play Joanna’s mom Beverly Padget, the maid who worked for the wealthy family, when Joanna was a young girl.

Laz Alonso is slated to play NYPD detective Will Sacovitch, who recruits Good's character, his former flame, to team up and infiltrate the Lawson home - led by Victor Garber as Robert Lawson, and Tate Donovan as his son.

The show's mid-season debut date is set for January 72013; It'll air on Monday nights, in the 10pm - 11pm hour, following The Biggest Loser at 9pm, until the return of The Voice.
