Who's in it? Victor Garber as Robert Bowers (from left), Meagan Good as Joanna Locasto, Katherine LaNasa as Sofia Bowers, Tate Donovan as Edward Bowers, Laz Alonso as Will Moreno.
What it's about: When wealthy party girl Vivian Bowers is found dead, FBI agent Will Moreno sends Det. Joanna Locasto, Vivian's former best friend who grew up inside the Bowers' home, undercover investigate. She gets reacquainted with old friends, enemies and lovers in this opulent soap from executive producer/writer Liz Heldens ("Friday Night Lights") and director Peter Horton ("Grey's Anatomy," "Dirty Sexy Money").
How long before I bail? ABC's delicious guilty pleasure "Revenge" has raised the bar for soaps, so "Infamous" needs to sink its claws in fast. I'll give it two episodes.
