Katie Holmes is returning to TV. The erstwhile Joey Potter has been cast in an untitled ABC pilot written by Behind The Candelabra’s Richard LaGravenese. The New York-set series explores a high-society marriage and the perverse games of wealthy socialites. According to TV Line, Holmes will plan Ann, a married woman “of education and breeding, who has never used those advantages for power over others.” While she’s busy running a philanthropic foundation and generally being the most wonderful woman to walk the face of the earth, Rufus Sewell’s Philip makes a bet with Margot (a still-uncast role) to try to destroy Ann’s marriage. It sounds a bit like a modern-day Dangerous Liaisons—or perhaps a super high-stakes Dawson’s Creek, which hopefully means Holmes will have to win back her husband with a moody, breathy ballad the Internet can mock forever.
