Katie Holmes is set to make a return to television, playing a New York socialite in a drama series.
The actress will be joining a yet untitled drama series.
Katie Holmes may return to television in her first series regular role since Dawson’s Creek. The actress has joined ABC’s untitled drama pilot from Richard LaGravenese, a representative for Holmes told TheWrap.
Set in New York City, the project revolves around the love and rivalry between two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others.
Holmes will play Ann, an educated New York blueblood who has never used her place in society for power. Smart, stylish and humble, she runs a charity with her husband. She’s drawn into war with fellow socialites after they target her and her marriage. Rufus Sewell also stars as Philip, Ann’s biggest enemy.
Aside from her six seasons on Dawson’s Creek, Holmes’ TV credits include Reelz Channel’s The Kennedys miniseries and a recurring guest role on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother. Her film credits include Batman Begins, Thank You For Smoking, and the upcoming films Miss Meadows and The Giver.
LaGravenese – who wrote the screenplays for HBO’s Behind The Candelabra, the films Beautiful Creatures and Water For Elephants, among others – will write and executive-produce the project. Erwin Stoff (The Matrix), Ilene Staple and Wren Arthur (A Prairie Home Companion) will executive produce with ABC Studios. — Reuters
