Ryan Guzman (Heroes Reborn) is set as a series regular opposite Piper Perabo and Daniel Sunjata in ABC’s drama pilot Notorious. The project, from Sony Pictures TV and Jeff Kwatinetz’s The Firm, was inspired by the relationship between famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and longtime Larry King Live executive producer Wendy Walker. Written by Drop Dead Diva creator Josh Berman and blogger Allie Hagan, Notorious is described as a provocative look at the interplay of criminal law and the media. It follows the professional and personal relationship between charismatic attorney Jake Gregorian (Sunjata) and powerhouse TV producer Julia George (Perabo) as they attempt to control the media, the justice system, and ultimately each other. Guzman will play Ryan Mills, Julia’s eager-to-please intern, son of the network president. Despite his youth and innocent facade, he’s ambitious and conniving, desperate to prove himself to his overbearing father. Guzman was most recently seen as Carlos Gutierrez on NBC’s Heroes Reborn and can next be seen in Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some. Guzman is repped by CAA, Luber Roklin Entertainment and attorney Neil Meyer.

Kimball will play Beau, the eldest son, a good ol’ boy who adores his momma (TBD) and worships his father (TBD), but didn’t inherit their strong moral compass. Kimball recurs on Chicago Med and can be seen in Jared Hess’ upcoming film Masterminds. He’s repped by UTA and Principato-Young.
