With Katie Holmes fashion line closed and done with, the actress is returning to TV for the first time since she starred in Dawson’s Creek!
Katie will play an “Audrey Hepburn-esque” New York City socialite in an untitled ABC drama. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be written and produced by Beautiful Creatures director Richard LaGravenese.
Holmes, 35, has been busy with movie projects and TV guest spots since the teen cult classic Dawson’s Creek ended in 2003. After splitting from ex-husband Tom Cruise, she moved with daughter Suri, 7½, to New York – a fitting location for the ABC pilot, which will follow the rivalry between two influential and manipulative Manhattan women.
But in real life, Holmes happily keeps things low-key in the Big Apple.
“I love the theater, the galleries in my neighborhood. Stuff [like] that is so much of what makes me love this city,” she told PEOPLE in February. “I love the Knicks. I love talking to my neighbors in the elevator. I like feeling a part of something big.”
I think returning to TV is a very smart move for her. She was great on TV! I wish she wasn’t returning to network, TV, however, because I think most of it is pretty bad. Give her a show like ‘Rectify’ or an AMC pilot!
Can’t wait to see how she does!
