Melina Kanakaredes in the new tv series “Notorious”
Melina Kanakaredes, best known from CSI: NY, will be back in a recurring role on ABC’s “Notorious”.
The show is based on the real-life relationship between criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and “Larry King Live” executive producer Wendy Walker. “Notorious” is not afraid to explore controversial issues, most prominently the relationship between our current justice system and the media, and how each can influence and distort the other.
Kanakaredes will play Dana Hartman, a natural beauty with a keen intelligence, sharp wit and a quick temper. She’s a woman who has risen to the pinnacle of success in broadcasting and plummeted to the depths of scandal-ridden despair. We meet her seven years out from the lowest point in her career, a mother to a rebellious twenty one year old daughter. She is a survivor, who will fight dirty to get what she wants and to protect her daughter.
Kanakaredes, known for her long-running role as Stella on CSI:NY, recently recurred on Extant. She also previously starred as Dr. Sydney Hansen on Providence. She’s repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
