From the Creek to couture! After more than 10 years, Katie Holmes is returning to the medium that kickstarted her career -- television. The 35-year-old has been cast in a new, currently untitled ABC pilot from Behind the Candelabra writer Richard LaGravenese

Described as a "high society drama" by Entertainment Weekly, the show will feature Holmes in the role of Ann, "a well-bred and educated woman who runs a philanthropic foundation with her husband." 

Another Upper East Side couple, Philip and Margot, make a bet to destroy Ann's perfect marriage. Think Cruel Intentions, but without the creepy incest.

Though she has made appearances on Eli Stone, How I Met Your Mother, and in the TV mini-series The Kennedys, this will be Holmes' first recurring TV role since Dawson's Creek, if the pilot gets picked up. 

The mother of 7-year-old Suri Cruise is also set to star in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of The Giver as the main character Jonas' mother, which comes out this August.

The past two years have been a time of transformation for the New York resident. In June 2012, she filed for divorce from her husband of almost six years, Tom Cruise. And earlier this month, she split from her five-year Holmes & Yang fashion line partnership with stylist Jeanne Yang.
