Storyline and production info

Notorious is a new American criminal and legal drama series that premiered on ABC on September 22, 2016. The show was created by Josh Berman and Allie Hagan, executive produced by Michael Engler, Kenny Meiselas, Brian Gersh, Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry and produced by Osprey Productions, ABC Studios and Sony Pictures Television.

The drama explores the ambiguous relationship between the criminal law and the media world, specifically, the manipulation of public opinion after a certain high-profile incident, and is based on two real-life personas. Renowned defense attorney Jake Gregorian (played by Daniel Sunjata, and based on Mark Geragos) and medial mogul and television producer Julia George (played by Piper Perabo, and based on Wendy Walker) are at the center of the storyline, where personal affairs are closely intertwined with the professional lives.

Reception and renewal potential

The initial critical response to Notorious was mostly negative, with 32% on Metacritic and 25% on Rotten Tomatoes, and a more generous 6.4/10 score on IMDb. It is mostly bashed as implausible, and the characters for being stereotypical, and while it is clear that ABC is looking for a strong, female-driven series to repeat the success of its popular drama series Scandal, it is also apparent that Notorious is not it – at least, not yet. The show premiered to 5.39 million viewers (up to 8.13 million in Live+7), a demo rating of 1.1 and a share of 4, down to 4.2 million for the third episode. ABC has not yet announced its plans for the future of Notorious, and we will keep you informed when any news are revealed.
