It looks like Katie Holmes may be making a triumphant return to TV as she has just signed on to star in and executive produce a new drama on Fox from Ilene Chaiken (Empire).
The untitled series would follow Holmes as FBI Special Agent Hazel Otis who “is in the midst of investigating a domestic terrorism threat when a personal indiscretion – an affair with a prominent general – shatters her life and threatens her career at the FBI. Now labeled “the mistress,” Hazel Otis – wife, mother, patriot – begins to rebuild her personal life and professional reputation.” It will be written by Chaiken and Melissa Scrivener Love.
The series would mark Katie’s first role as a series regular since her teenage drama series Dawson’s Creek, which ran from 1998-2003. She has had smaller TV credits over the years though including How I Met Your Mother, Ray Donovan, and The Kennedys miniseries.
