Deception is NBC’s star studded mystery-drama slated for a mid-season premiere (2013). It looks like a hybrid of Revenge (ABC) and The Killing (AMC) in terms of plot. But that’s pretty much the network-formula; clone a hit. Meagan Good stole the spotlight with her recurring role on the last season of Californication so it will be nice to see her in a leading-role now. I’m very excited to see Canadian actor Victor Garber (‘Argo’, ‘Alias’, ‘Eli Stone’) back on the small screen. The rest of the mix is quite diverse with Marin Hinkle (‘Two and a Half Men’), Tate Donovan (‘The O.C.’) and more.
Deception premieres Monday, January 7th 2013 on NBC.
The ‘acting’ in Revenge is really annoying but the soap opera-like drama and story is entertaining. Deception looks like a contender in this category.
PS. I still have mixed emotions towards NBC for a number of reasons 1) Conan 2) Southland 3) Awake etc. so hopefully they don’t drop the ball on this one.
