*Meagan Good has landed her first regular gig on the small screen – the lead role in NBC’s drama pilot “Notorious,” reports Deadline.com.
From Universal TV, “Notorious” is described as an opulent soap in which detective Joanna Locasto (Good) returns undercover to the wealthy and troubled Lawson family she grew up in — as the housekeeper’s daughter — to solve the murder of celebutante Vivian Lawson, who was once her closest friend.
Good is currently working a season-long arc on Showtime’s “Californication” and will next be seen on the big screen in the April 20 release “Think Like A Man.”
In addition to “Notorious,” two other hourlong pilots are toplined by African American stars: Fox’s “Guilty,” to star Cuba Gooding Jr., and ABC’s “Last Resort,” led by Andre Braugher. Additionally, Kerry Washington is the star of ABC’s upcoming midseason drama series “Scandal.”
