Deception - from writer Liz Heldens (Friday Night Lights) - will follow a detective (Meagan Good) who returns undercover to the family she grew up in to investigate her old friend's murder.

Merkerson will play Beverly Padget, mother of Good's Joanna, who worked for the wealthy Bowers family when her daughter was a young girl.

Deception - which also stars Victor Garber (Alias) and Tate Donovan (Damages) - was previously known as Notorious and then Infamous before settling on its current title.

Katherine LaNasa (Big Love), Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) and Laz Alonso (Breakout Kings) have also been cast on the series, which will premiere on NBC in early 2013.
