Katie Holmes to revisit Jackie Kennedy role in 'The Kennedys - After Camelot'

Katie Holmes is returning to the role of Jackie Kennedy in Reelz Channel’s The Kennedys – After Camelot, a follow-up series to its eight-episode 2011 miniseries The Kennedys, EW has confirmed.

Holmes is also set to direct one of the four episodes that will comprise After Camelot. Jon Cassar will direct the other three episodes after having been behind the camera for all eight episodes of the original Kennedys series.

Production on the series will begin in 2015 with a planned premiere on Reelz some time in 2016. Holmes will executive-produce the miniseries, which is based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s book After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present.

Katie Holmes cast in ABC pilot from 'Behind the Candelabra' scribe

Katie Holmes is going from Capeside to the East Side.

The Dawson’s Creek actress has been cast in an untitled high society drama pilot for ABC from Behind the Candelabra writer Richard LaGravenese, EW has confirmed.

Holmes will star opposite Rufus Sewell in this drama about opposing couples living in New York City. She will play Ann, a well-bred and educated woman who runs a philanthropic foundation with her husband. After Philip (Sewell) and his wife Margot make a bet to destroy Ann’s seemingly perfect marriage, Ann and Philip engage in a rivalry. The two equally-matched, powerful socialites play out their obsessive attraction and seduction via their manipulation of others.

The role of Margot has yet to be cast. Taylor Hackford (Ray) will direct the pilot.

If the drama were to be picked up to series, it would be Holmes’ first regular TV role since Dawson’s Creek, though she has made appearances in How I Met Your Mother, The Kennedys and Eli Stone.

On the film front, Holmes will play a not-so-dainty schoolteacher in the upcoming film Miss Meadows, premiering at next month’s Tribeca Film Festival
