Graceland's Daniel Sunjata to Star in ABC's Real Life-Inspired Notorious Pilot

Graceland and Rescue Me alum Daniel Sunjata will channel famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos, as the star of ABC’s Notorious drama pilot.

Written by Drop Dead Diva creator Josh Berman and blogger Allie Hagan (“Suri’s Burn Book”), the project is inspired by the true-life stories of Geragos and cable news producer Wendy Walker, promising a provocative look at “the unique, sexy, and dangerous interplay of criminal law and the media.”

Per our sister site Deadline, Sunjata will play Jake Gregorian, a charismatic defense attorney who manipulates the media to win cases at any cost.

Sunjata’s previous TV credits also include Smash, Grey’s Anatomy, The Bronx Is Burning and Law & Order: SVU.
