Actors Laz Alonso & Meagan Good have just been set to play lead roles in an upcoming NBC drama series called ‘Notorius,’ a segue show from A&E’s ‘Breakout Kings.’ The two of them will play detectives who were once a romantic item, but are reunited in an effort to solve a murder:
Laz Alonso (Breakout Kings) is set as the male lead opposite Meagan Good in NBC’s drama pilot Notorious, from Universal TV and BermanBraun. Written by Liz Heldens, 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. Alonzo will play NYPD detective Will Sacovitch who recruits former flame Joanna to infiltrate the Lawson home, in the hope of finding evidence that Vivian was murdered. [Source]
That’s a good look for the both of them. No word on when the series will officially debut…
