*S. Epatha Merkerson is returning to NBC with a recurring role on the network’s upcoming Meagan Good drama “Deception.”

As previously reported, the show is described as an opulent soap in which detective Joanna Padget (Good) returns undercover to the wealthy and troubled Bower family she grew up in — as the maid’s daughter — to solve the murder of the notorious heiress Vivian Bower who was once her closest friend.

Emmy winner Merkerson will play Joanna’s mom Beverly Padget, who worked for the Bowers family when Joanna was a young girl.

“Deception” premieres Monday Jan. 7 at 10 p.m. on NBC. Watch the trailer below.
