Piper Perabo Cast in ABC’s ‘Notorious’ Pilot

“Covert Affairs” alum will star alongside “Graceland’s” Daniel Sunjata

Piper Perabo is set to star in ABC’s “Notorious” pilot.

Inspired by the true-life stories of famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and cable news producer Wendy Walker, the drama is a provocative look at the unique, sexy and dangerous interplay of criminal law and the media.

The “Covert Affairs” alum will play Julia, the driven producer of the No. 1 TV news program, the character inspired by Walker.

She will star alongside Daniel Sunjata (“Graceland”), Kate Jennings Grant, Aimee Teegarden and J. August Richards.

Josh Berman will executive produce and co-write with Allie Hagan, who will also serve as co-executive producer. Geragos, Walker and Kenny Meiselas will executive produce alongside Jeff Kwatinetz, Josh Barry and Michael Engler, who will direct.

Perabo is repped by ICM Partners.
