I only just found out that it NBC had put the pilot episode online, so I haven't watched it yet, meaning, no commentary from me (at least not within this post).
But you can watch it yourselves in the player embedded below.
Part of NBC's mid-season debuts, Deception (initially titled Notorious, and then switched to Infamous, and now will be called Deception), is scheduled to make its TV broadcast premiere on January 7, 2013, airing on Monday nights, in the 10pm – 11pm hour.
Deception stars Meagan Good as detective Joanna Locasto, a female detective who returns to work undercover investigating the wealthy family she grew up with – as the maid's daughter – to solve the murder of the notorious heiress who was once her closest friend – celebutante Vivian Lawson.
The NBC series co-stars Laz Alonso, Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, and Katherine LaNasa co-starring.
Laz Alonso is slated to play NYPD detective Will Sacovitch, who recruits Good's character, his former flame, to team up and infiltrate the Lawson home – led by Victor Garber as Robert Lawson, and Tate Donovan as his son.
Watch the full pilot episode below; I'll do so later, and return with thoughts:
