Kate Jennings Grant stars in "Notorious" on ABC as Louise Herrick, the brilliant host of "Louise Herrick Live" (LHL), the number one TV news program in the country, whose behind-the-scenes antics cause trouble wherever she goes.

Kate Jennings Grant comes to "Notorious" directly from Broadway, where she most recently starred in the Tony-nominated revival of "Noises Off," alongside Megan Hilty and Andrea Martin.

Grant has built an extensive resume balanced between projects in theater, film and television. Her stage career in New York has included leading roles on Broadway in "The Lyons," opposite Linda Lavin; "Proof," with Neil Patrick Harris; and Donald Margulies' most recent drama, "The Country House," alongside her current "Notorious" co-star Daniel Sunjata.

On the big screen, Grant appeared in Paul Greengrass' Oscar-nominated film "United 93," Ed Zwick's "Love and Other Drugs," opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, Sundance Grand Jury nominee "Forgiven," and Bill Condon's "Kinsey." She also portrayed Diane Sawyer in Ron Howard's Oscar-nominated film "Frost/Nixon." Her television credits include Showtime's "Billions," CBS's "Madame Secretary," "The Good Wife" and "Elementary," as well as recurring roles in FX's "Damages," "Amazon's "Alpha House" and NBC's "Parenthood."

Born in New Jersey and raised in Connecticut, Grant was an avid pianist growing up and dreamed of being a professional accompanist and music director. Her high school choir teacher encouraged her to try performing, so she auditioned for the school's musical "Guys and Dolls" and was cast in the leading role of Sarah Brown, a part she would eventually play on Broadway opposite Lauren Graham, Craig Bierko and Oliver Platt

Grant received her BA in English and Music Composition from the University of Pennsylvania, and she is a graduate of the Juilliard School of Drama.

A longtime New York resident, Kate splits her time between New York and Los Angeles.
