Kevin Zegers (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) is set as a series regular 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. Zegers will play Oscar Keaton, a billionaire playboy who created one of America’s biggest social media companies that went public two years ago. Zegers starred in Fox series Gracepoint and next will be seen in Derick Martini’s The Curse of Downer’s Grove. He’s repped by UTA, Untitled and Hansen Jacobsen.
