Sneak Peek: 'Deception'

By December 18, 2012

Follow me on:

DeceptionIt'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.

Iím very excited to see what this show has to offer, but instead of watching the pilot online I think Iím just going to wait for it to premiere on the 7th. The show looks very promising from the trailer one of the girls I work with at DISH showed me the other day, so Iím thinking itíll be worth the wait. At least Iím hoping that is the case, so Iíll just keep a very close eye out for that premiere date to find out. The good news though, is that I donít even have to remember to set an individual recording timer for it before its air date because I just upgraded to a DISH Hopper DVR. I have PrimeTime Anytime enabled (records all of the major networkís primetime shows automatically each night for me), so itíll just appear on my DVR after itís recorded. I canít wait! :)
