It's got intrigue, romance, power-hungry millionaires, mystery and one very dead heiress -- and we can't wait to dive in head first!
With the absence of Desperate Housewives, primetime television needed a new soap to stir the pot and NBC's Deception may just fill that hole left by those ladies of Wisteria Lane. This winter, NBC and the other networks have several promising new dramas and one at the top of my list is Deception (it better be good if it's taking over Revolution's time slot for the next few months).
The series centers around Joanna Locasto, a NYPD detective who goes deep undercover to expose the truth behind the mysterious death of heiress Vivian Bowers, who happens to have been her childhood friend.† Joanna grew up in the Bowers household as the maid's daughter and therefore has the perfect excuse to delve back into her childhood home without rousing suspicion in order to get the goods on what is really going on in the Bowers world. Will her findings put her life in mortal danger?
Can't wait until January to watch the pilot episode? No worries -- NBC is offering fans the chance to watch the entire pilot online at NBC.com. Deception debuts on January 7 on NBC.
