NOTORIOUS - "The Perp Walk" - As Sarah's funeral approaches, Jake's feelings may be clouding his ability to defend and protect an out-of-control Oscar from the press. Julia wants to locate Sarah's brother and only living family, to give Sarah a voice as well as to get an exclusive scoop on an alleged family argument. Also, Jake takes on a baby kidnapping and the mother's appearance on LHL uncovers an unexpected lead. Meanwhile, Sean "Diddy" Combs drops by LHL to see his friend Louise Herrick, on "Notorious," airing THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

ABC’s new drama Notorious features a powerful news producer (Piper Perabo) and slick Los Angeles lawyer (Daniel Sunjata) working together to shape the news. The show-within-a-show format also makes for the perfect forum for real celebrities to pop up. Sean “Diddy” Combs (above, with Perabo) cameos on the September 29 episode as a friend of cable news host Louise Herrick (Kate Jennings Grant).

“Our whole show is about the story behind the story,” says executive producer Josh Berman. “It’s just life imitating art and art imitating life.”

The cast got a kick out of the music mogul’s visit. “It was our first episode after the pilot, so there was all this excitement already,” Berman says. “Then Diddy shows up with his entourage, the gates open and everyone pours out of his big car. It was really exciting.”
