Notorious Premiere: Is ABC's Media Drama Worthy of Scandal's Timeslot?

22 September 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you already have a healthy distrust of cable news, Thursday’s series premiere of Notorious — which is keeping Scandal‘s timeslot warm until the drama returns midseason — likely did very little to quell your suspicions.

Inspired by the real-life relationship between celebrity attorney Mark Geragos and Larry King Live producer Wendy Walker, the ABC drama purports to give audiences a behind-the-scenes look at how criminal lawyers work with the media to sway public opinion about their clients. In the case of Notorious, it’s producer/all-around “tough-ass »

‘Notorious’: After 32 Years at CNN, Producer Wendy Walker Finally Gets to Make Up the News

22 September 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You couldn’t script some of the things Wendy Walker experienced as a live news producer at CNN. But now, the new ABC drama “Notorious” aims to do just that.

The series, which launches Thursday night, stars Piper Perabo as a TV news producer who develops a friendship and alliance with a superstar defense attorney (Daniel Sunjata). The show is inspired by Walker’s lengthy CNN career and her pal, real-life defense attorney Mark Geragos.

Walker admits she was taken aback at first of how her “Notorious” character handled things (like, say, having sex in her office right before the live telecast). But she soon adjusted to the world of dramatized television.

The veteran news producer spent 32 years at CNN (including 18 of those as executive producer of “Larry King Live”), focusing on breaking news and other live coverage. »

Notorious Review – TV- ABC Aims To Throw The Whole Well At You

22 September 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As the television world exists now, one of the main pushes we see from every network is an effort to sub-brand itself as having a “kind of show.” That’s a slightly convoluted way of saying that the networks think fans of one of their shows look for a similar “feel” from the next show. If a new show were thrown at you, they want you to be able to guess who is going to air it.

With that in mind, there’s an extent to which it’s hard to blame ABC for Notorious. It had to seem like a good Shondaland fit, and it looks decent on paper. You do you ABC.

If you throw in Josh Berman (Bones, Drop Dead Diva, The Blacklist) as creator, so much the better.

The trouble is that the world of laughable melodrama, and/or purposeful guilty pleasures that are overwrought with contrivance as a writing style, »

'Notorious' Series Review: A Played-Out Plot with Good Banter

22 September 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

We can all count our lucky stars, because Piper Perabo is back and hotter than ever. Her new ABC show, on the other hand, may not be up to the level we think she deserves. The drama that looks behind the scenes at a hot cable news program suffers from generalizations and likability, but has plenty of potential to pick up throughout the season. Find out what we thought about Notorious below.

‘Notorious’ Review: ABC Legal Drama Tries to Please All, Ends Up a Mess

21 September 2016 4:31 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Whether you believe we’re living in a time of “peak TV,” in which content overload will supposedly destroy the industry, or whether you think there can never be too much programming, one thing is for sure: If you want to sell a show to an audience, you’d better make damn sure you catch their attention. Using that logic, ABC’s new drama “Notorious” can perhaps be forgiven for trying to hit every dramatic trope possible in a 40-odd minute span. There’s the high-pressure TV newsroom and the successful producer Julia George (Piper Perabo) who is tasked with getting all the big. »

‘Conviction’ & ‘Notorious’ Review: Hurry Back ‘Scandal’, Wannabes Fail

21 September 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There is just not a lot of good to say about either Notorious or Conviction, except that the two new ABC shows serve as a thankful reminder of just how good Shonda Rhimes is at what she does. Otherwise, as I say in my video review above, the former starring Piper Perabo and Daniel Sunjata is at best coy where it could be curious, and the Hayley Atwell-led latter is cliché-addled where, well it could show some conviction.

Notorious Season 1 Review

20 September 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

According to movies and TV, at least, sex and journalism go hand in hand. It’s a recognizable stereotype—pop culture frequents the archetypical hard-hitting reporter who boinks their way to one big scoop after another—but it goes completely against the basic ethical principles to which real life journalists must hold themselves. Sure, a dedicated journo often needs to be pushy to get a tough source to crack, but it’s high crime to sleep one’s way through the red tape, even if it helps bring truths to the public.

ABC’s Notorious builds its entire plot on illicit relationships between the media and their subjects. There isn’t a single character in this show that takes the adage “don’t sleep where you work” to heart, but that’s actually what makes the show great.

Emmy Parties 2016: CAA, UTA, Wme, ICM and Gersh Celebrate Nominees and New Season

17 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Friday night agency party crawl has become a staple of Emmy weekend.

The fortunate few who were invited to all of them had the high-class problem of mapping a route that wound through the home of UTA managing partner Jay Sures in Brentwood, the Little Holmby digs of Gersh’s Leslie Siebert, Bouchon (CAA) in Beverly Hills and Catch La (Wme) in West Hollywood.

Among the Emmy weekend warriors on the circuit were Fox Television Group’s Dana Walden and NBCUniversal Cable’s Bonnie Hammer. Both of them also managed to make time to stop in at the Variety/Women in Film bash at Gracias Madre, just down the street from Wme’s gathering.

‘Notorious’ Behind the Scenes: How Piper Perabo, Daniel Sunjata Created Sparks on Set (Exclusive Photos)

15 September 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A version of this story about “Notorious” first appeared in the print edition of TheWrap Magazine’s Fall TV Issue. ABC is making a big bet on its new fall drama “Notorious,” breaking up its reliable Thursday night lineup to schedule the show between the Shondaland heavy-hitters “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” Based on the real-life relationship between “Larry King Live” producer Wendy Walker and civil defense attorney Mark Geragos, the drama follows the ethically questionable partnership between a seasoned cable news producer (Piper Perabo of “Covert Affairs”) and a high-profile lawyer (“Graceland” alum Daniel Sunjata) who work. »

TV Review: ABC’s ‘Notorious’ and ‘Conviction’

9 September 2016 6:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s remarkable how interchangeable “Notorious” and “Conviction” are. Hayley Atwell is in one, and Piper Perabo leads the other, but you’d be forgiven for confusing the lesser details, like which one is a take on Larry King or has a presidential campaign subplot. Both are steamy procedurals that combine legal thriller with media circus, playing up high-profile clients, sensational crimes, and the sexy people involved. Both are led by beautiful white women, making the most of their business formal wardrobes in expensive high heels and blazers. Both women have smoldering sexual tension with a man — the second-billed actor — that crosses both personal and professional boundaries, while also throwing off sexual tension that tries very hard to light the screen on fire (and occasionally succeeds).

And, most importantly, both read as messy, incomplete dramas that appear to be blatant attempts to rework the “Scandal” template with a few different bells and whistles. The »

Notorious: First Look at the Series Premiere!

7 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Annie Walker is back, y'all!

Okay, no, not really, but we can dream, right? Instead, Piper Perabo is stepping into her newest role on Notorious as big-shot television news producer, Julia George, as she and her hidden lawyer partner Jake use the media to twist the narrative they want to tell, and build the ratings her show thrives on.

In a way, Julia is embracing her inner Annie Walker and using common sense and intuition to keep twists interesting on her show as she oversees a, for lack of a better word, loose and fun-loving news anchor.

Her personal life takes a hit in the premiere which will leave her focused more on the bigger mystery that threatens to take over Jake's life, and in turn, Julia's.

Notorious Season 1 Episode 1 premieres Thursday, September 22 at 9/8c on ABC!

ABC Fall Dramas: First Impressions of Conviction, Notorius & Designated Survivor

3 September 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Fall television is weeks away. Do you know what you'll be watching? We're here to help.

We're going to break down the 2016-17 offerings by network and give our first impressions, reasons to watch and share thoughts on the competition.

Conviction - Mondays at 10/9c - Premieres October 3

First Impression: Conviction isn't groundbreaking television. It has a legal procedural element, a dribble of politics and a hint of family drama.

Conviction follows the life of a woman who is well known to the public, who is always waiting for her to screw up. 

As the former first daughter of the United States, Hayes Morrison is that daughter, played by Hayley Atwell.

The entire time I watched, I kept picturing someone named Haze. After all, she's a bit (more than a big) of a bad girl.

The job she takes is her penance. The work is thematic after the success of Making of a Murderer. »

Is ABC's First Non-#Tgit Thursday Promo Trying (Way) Too Hard?

22 August 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As first reported by TVLine, ABC is abandoning its “Tgit” theme this fall, seeing as its Thursday lineup (premiering Sept. 22) for the first time in years contains a non-Shonda Rhimes drama. And boy, does the first promo overexplain the switcheroo.

Kerry Washington's second pregnancy has pushed back season six of Scandal until midseason.
