Katie Holmes is making a return to television.

The actress has been cast in an untitled ABC drama pilot about a world of high-society, highly duplicitous New Yorkers.

Holmes is set to play Ann, a smart and genuine philanthropist, who falls apart when her husband Philip (Rufus Sewell) makes a secretive bet that ruins their marriage.

She then has to fight back and play the game.

The show is being described as Dangerous Liaisons-esque, and comes from Behind the Candelabra scribe Richard LaGravenese.

Taylor Hackford will direct the pilot.

Should the show get picked up, it will mark Holmes’ first regular role on television since she rose to fame on “Dawson’s Creek.”
