01/07/2013 (10:00PM - 11:00PM) (Monday) : SAN FRANCISCO POLICE OFFICER JOANNA PADGET LOCASTO (MEAGAN GOOD) RETURNS TO THE WEALTHY BOWERS ESTATE FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF HER ESTRANGED CHILDHOOD BEST FRIEND.
The death of wealthy party girl Vivian Bowers doesn't add up for FBI agent Will Moreno (Laz Alonso), especially in a family as suspicious as the Bowers. Convinced that the tabloid staple's death was a homicide, he recruits his former SFPD partner and Vivian's childhood best friend, Joanna Padget Locasto (Meagan Good) to re-establish ties with the Bowers. Determined to find justice for her estranged best friend, Joanna infiltrates the dynasty she once considered family, and quickly begins to uncover why Vivian's life was very much in danger. Also starring are Victor Garber ("Argo"), Tate Donovan ("Damages"), Katherine LaNasa ("The Campaign"), Wes Brown ("Scandal"), Ella Rae Peck ("Gossip Girl"), and Marin Hinkle ("Two and a Half Men").
