Meagan Good is making major moves. The 30-year-old actress recently snagged the leading role in NBC’s upcoming  drama Notorious.

The show–which is still in the pilot phase–is described by Deadline as an “opulent” soap opera and follows detective Joanna Locasto (Good)  as she “returns undercover to the wealthy and troubled Lawson family she grew up in — as the housekeeper’s daughter — to solve the murder of celebutante Vivian Lawson, who was once her closest friend.”

Sounds….interesting.

If the show is picked up, this will be Good’s first time starring in a series, and also signals the fall lineup will include more people of color. Kerry Washington, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Andre Braugher have all been tapped to headline major network shows.
