I recently caught up with Meagan Good and Laz Alonso -- stars of NBC's Deception -- at a lunch and roundtable discussion at the Four Season's Beverly Hills to chat about the prime time soap opera.
The series opens with the death of wealthy socialite and party girl Vivian Bowers of an apparent drug overdose. When FBI agent Will Moreno (Alonso) is convinced the death is a homicide, he enlists Detective Joanna Locasto (Good), Vivian's best friend 20 years ago, to uncover the dark secrets of the Bower family and clues about why her life was in danger.
And while we are about halfway through the series with all 11 episodes in the can, there is no word yet on whether it will be returning for a second season. However, the two stars are keeping their "fingers crossed" and explain that there is a lot the fans can look forward to, including the identity of Vivian's killer.
Watch my interview with Meagan and Laz to find out what attracted them to the project and what we can expect for the rest of this season.
A new episode of Deception airs tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
