They can also catch him on Verizon’s new web series, called, “Celebrating Your Story: Powering Your Network” throughout the month of February. The multimedia initiative launches Feb. 1 and includes a series of candid video vignettes featuring Pastor Marvin Sapp, actor Laz Alonso and 5 others. Guests of the brunch also got the new Pantech Breakout 4G LTE. 

According to Deadline:

Notorious is described as an opulent soap in which detective Joanna Locasto (Good) 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.

Be on the lookout for Notorious, which is set to debut Super Bowl week in 2013.
