From Sony Pictures TV and Jeff Kwatinetz’s The Firm, Notorious was inspired by the relationship between famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and long-time Larry King Live executive producer Wendy Walker. It’s described as a provocative look at the interplay of criminal law and the media.
Kanakaredes will play Dana Hartman, a natural beauty with a keen intelligence, sharp wit and a quick temper. She’s a woman who has risen to the pinnacle of success in broadcasting and plummeted to the depths of scandal-ridden despair. We meet her seven years out from the lowest point in her career, a mother to a rebellious twenty one year old daughter. She is a survivor, who will fight dirty to get what she wants and to protect her daughter.
Kanakaredes, known for her long-running role as Stella on CSI:NY, recently recurred on Extant. She also previously starred as Dr. Sydney Hansen on Providence. She’s repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
