I figured it was only a matter of time before we saw some footage from this, after last week's announcement and still photo reveal.
Above is essentially your one-sheet.
As I said in my last post, of all the new series/pilots ordered for next season, this is one that I'm really intrigued by - partly because I have absolutely no idea what to expect from it.
It seemed like an out-of-the-box pick for NBC - one that I didn't see coming - and I'm curious.
I believe it was Jug who commented in my last post that NBC might be going after ABC's Revenge and that murder mystery series' audience; an astute observation there because, given the few episodes of Revenge I've watched, I can definitely see that! In short, both series can be considered "opulent soaps," featuring a young attractive female protag, who's bent on revenge against a wealthy family she infiltrates assuming another identity.
And watching the below new clips from Infamous (formely known as Notorious), I'm even more willing to accept the aforementioned potential motives by NBC; granted it's just 2 short clips, but they *feel* somewhat similar to the ABC series - right down to the title cards for both (just take a look at them below to see what I mean).
But I'm still looking forward to finally seeing a full episode. I usually give new series 3 to 4 episodes before deciding on whether to stop watching, or continue.
It's described as an "opulent soap" starring 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 Alonso, Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, and Katherine LaNasa co-starring.
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.
I anticipate an S&A Infamous Talkback series when the time comes...
Watch both clips immediately below, and underneath, watch star Meagan Good describe the character she plays and what to expect from the series:
