Piper Perabo in Notorious

Covert Affairs' Piper Perabo to Star in ABC's Real Life-ish Notorious Pilot

Ex-Covert Affairs agent Piper Perabo is spying a return to TV as the co-lead opposite Daniel Sunjata in the ABC drama pilot Notorious, TVLine has learned.

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 famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos (Sunjata) and cable news producer Wendy Walker, promising a provocative look at “the unique, sexy, and dangerous interplay of criminal law and the media.”

Perabo will play Julia (i.e. the Wendy role), a driven producer of the No. 1 TV news program in the country. She’s squeaky clean on paper, but fights in the mud when necessary. She not only controls the nation’s headlines, she owns them.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I’ve been a huge fan of Piper since Coyote Ugly and Imagine Me & You, but I could never get into Covert Affairs, but this show seems right up my alley. I love both law and behind the scenes shows.

    I also thought Covert Affairs was a great show. In fact, it got better as Piper became a kick-ass, world traveling agent.

  4. I’m still upset about how Covert Affairs ended, but I like her so I’ll give this a shot.

      CA was a great show but its ratings went downhill where in its last season, it was the worst on USA… It was such a well produced show that took viewers around the world on the adventures.. not everything shot in Toronto to look like everywhere else… You would think a show with these 2 leads will get picked up… CA and Graceland were great shows but got buried by USA..
