Days ahead of the start of the major network upfronts, NBC has made a bit more room in their 2013-2014 line-up by deciding not to renew their freshman soap Deception for a second season. And from the sound of it, they won't be filling the space with another primetime soap, as the Peacock has reportedly passed on the modern-day Hatfields & McCoys drama that was in contention among the pilots in development this season.
Since playing the role of Jimmy Cooper in The O.C., it's been one notable project after the other for Tate Donovan. Sure, some of us may always associate him - at least a little bit - with his earlier work in such films as SpaceCamp and Love Potion No. 9 (both referenced here without any intended irony), but he's really stepped in up in recent years, between his role in Damages and his contribution to the top-notch cast of the Oscar-nominated film Argo.
NBC premiered one of their new Midseason dramas last night. Deception brings us into a murder mystery as a detective returns to the wealthy home of her childhood best friend to try to uncover the truth behind her death. The promo ahead gives us a few glimpses of what's to come as the first season gets going.
Tomorrow night, NBC will debut Liz Helden's new drama Deception, and it seems NBC is ready to proceed with another of Liz Helden's series. The network announced this weekend that they've given summer dramedy series Camp a straight to series order, with the aim to get the show on the air this summer.
Among their midseason offerings, NBC has Deception set to debut this week. The soapy drama offers one part murder mystery and one or two pars rich-family drama that paces itself nicely in its first few episodes, drawing the viewer into the history of this family and the mystery of their daughter's death without overwhelming with details and back-story.
NBC's new promo might just sum up what we're going to get from Deception with the sight of a beautiful woman's dead body, revealed to us as words like "sex tape" and "naughty girl" are spoken and read. Joining the likes of Scandal and Revenge among network television's soapy primetime offerings is Deception.
The title's been changed. The premiere date is set. In just a couple of months, NBC will premiere Deception, their new drama that - based on the latest promo, titled "Young, Beautifulů and Dead" - looks like it's playing heavy on the drama. Deception stars Meagan Good as Detective Joanna Locasto, a woman who returns to visit the wealthy family of her now-deceased childhood friend Vivian Bowers.
Earlier, we shared the good news that NBC had finally set the new return date for Community. Sure, we have to wait until February, which seems like a long time to wait, considering it was supposed premiere this month, but on the bright side, the show has landed a Thursday night time slot. Community isn't the only series with a return date. NBC set the season premieres for Smash, Celebrity Apprentice and the fourth season of The Voice.
NBC can't seem to settle on a name for their upcoming soapy drama, which more recently, had been going by the title Infamous. From writer Liz Heldens, the series is among those new shows slated for a midseason release and it looks like it's getting another title change as it's being reported that Infamous will now go by the name Deception.
