10 Mar 2014
Richard LaGravenese's ABC drama pilot, inspired by Dangerous Liaisons, will feature Katie Holmes.
Holmes will play Ann, a well-bred woman who runs a philanthropic foundation that helps bring clean water to African villages with her husband.
Holmes was last seen on Broadway in Theresa Rebeck's Dead Accounts. Her stage credits also include All My Sons, and she starred on the TV show "Dawson's Creek." Her film work includes "Thank You for Smoking," "Batman Begins" and "Pieces of April."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
