Arriving on the set of her new television pilot, Katie Holmes stepped out in the West Village on Wednesday (April 2).

The "Teaching Mrs. Tingle" star looked cute in her black jacket, black skinnies, and black boots with a camouflage handbag as she prepared to film her new ABC pilot.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, the new show is styled similarly to "Dangerous Liaisons" and follows two powerful socialites who express love and rivalry through manipulation of others.

In her return to the small screen, Katie will play Ann, "a woman of education and breeding who, with her husband, runs a philanthropic foundation that helps bring clean water to African villages."
