Piper Perabo as Julia George in Notorious.

Playing the game and getting played in Notorious.

A powerhouse TV producer and a charismatic defence attorney don’t usually have anything in common but in Notorious, these two influencers are the media-makers, opinion-shakers and the ones who ultimately control the justice system - one outrageous scandal at a time. Notorious starts on Monday 28 November at 19:30 on M-Net channel 101

Julia George (Piper Perabo, Covert Affairs) is the brains behind a successful, highly-rated actuality show. On the flip side, Jake Gregorian (Daniel Sunjata, Graceland) is a charming, high-stakes defence attorney. Outward appearances would tell you that these two have no love lost between them, but secretly their symbiotic relationship is actually a cunning, ingenious ploy that helps them control the nation’s headlines and court rooms.

In the premiere episode, Julia learns that an internet mogul named Oscar Keaton has been issued with an arrest warrant for fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run. Prepared to get the exclusive, she calls on the mogul’s lawyer and friend, Jake, places him in front of the camera and lets the drama unfold. Though it appears that they’ve both got full control of the situation, scandalous secrets soon start spilling out, forcing them to question everything they know.
