Katie Holmes to star in new pilot
LOS ANGELES (AFP) – The actress has been cast in the lead role of a currently-untitled drama pilot at Fox, Variety reported.
Holmes will play an FBI Special Agent in the midst of investigating a domestic terrorism threat when the revelation of her affair with a prominent general upends her life and career. In addition to starring, Holmes will also serve as an executive producer.
Holmes most recently starred in Steven Soderbergh’s film “Logan Lucky” and will appear in the upcoming crime caper “Ocean’s 8.” On television, Holmes is best-known for playing Joey on the popular teen drama “Dawson’s Creek.”
She has also recently appeared in the mini-series “The Kennedys: Decline and Fall” (as Jackie Kennedy) and in the Showtime drama “Ray Donovan.”
Ilene Chaiken and Melissa Scrivner Love serve as writers and executive producers. Chaiken was the showrunner for Fox’s series “Empire” until the middle of the show’s current fourth season, but she remains an executive producer.
Scrivner Love previously wrote for, and co-executive produced, the Fox series “Rosewood.” Her other credits include “Person of Interest” and “CSI: Miami.”
