Katie Holmes Returning to Television, Starring in ABC Pilot!

Great news, Katie Holmes fans! She is all set to return to scripted television with an untitled Richard LaGravenese drama set to air on ABC, THR reports.

The 35-year-old actress will star in the show about “the love and rivalry between two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction to and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others.”

Katie will play Ann, a well off woman who is described as being similar to Audrey Hepburn.

Previously, Katie starred on the television show Dawson’s Creek, which hit airwaves in 1998.

    I would be surprised if this show make it past the first week. Who comes up with this stuff? No wonder more than half of new shows are cancelled.

    Wow. I have never seen so many people root for a complete stranger to fail. It’s sad. What did Katie Holmes ever do to you people that she’s so despised. I’m not particularly a fan. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in anything – however, unless she was an axe murderer, why hate her so much. She did marry Tom Cruise, who’s a complete whack-a-doodle, which make me think she’s probably a whack-a-doodle too, but damn people…..she’s just a middling actress who used to be married to a cult crazed actor. Why would you waste your hate on that?

    Alicia maybe not rooting for her but more like just familiar with her track record so counting on this being more of the same.

    Best description I’ve read of Holmes’ acting is by the Wall Street Journal re Mad Money: “Katie Holmes, who pops her eyes, scrunches her nose and shakes her booty in lieu of acting.” Therein lies the problem!

    @Josie: Can’t wait either. Maybe this will reboot her dead in the water, post tom cruise career. But please pair her with a an actress who could be here equal. Maybe, let’s see, hmmmm. This show would make for good television. I’ll most definitely watch!!!!

    I love reading these comments I rarely see Tom but he is always mention. Everyday Katie will always be in the media whether movie or TV she had a famous ex last name and baby girl by her famous ex whether Katie flops or not she will always be in the media because of her ex. No …..Katie’s ex did not give her talent but like @anne says Tom looks like a gypsy traveling the world. Trust me Katie will always work. Lucky girl Katie does not need talent. No more Holmes and yang do you think Katie cares she will still make money and still have opportunities. You all will still see ms. Holmes in the next 10 years flop or not then you will see more suri. I love reading these comments I just wanted to add this. Katie is going no were she will forever be in the media. Get use to it.

    I read it differently elsewhere, and the storyline made more sense than what was written above. Actually I think this role is going to suit her, sounds interesting, of what I’ve read.

    @34 Does the name Mimi Rogers mean anything to you? She faded away and is hardly heard from. Give Katie a few more flops and she will go the same way. The public will get tired of her and her sad story and the paps will stop taking her pictures. If she doesn’t have a hit soon her shelf life is going to expire. This tv pilot will not make it to series.
