She got her start as the adorable Joey on “Dawson’s Creek” and now Katie Holmes is getting back to her roots on the small screen.

The “Mad Money” actress has agreed to star in a new untitled drama by Richard LaGravenese to air on the ABC Network this fall.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Holmes will play Ann, a well-bred woman who is described as Audrey Hepburn-esque. She and her husband run a philanthropic foundation that helps bring clean water to African villages. Childless, she thinks she'd like to raise a family, but she can't get her philanthropic husband to settle down in one spot for very long. Margot and Philip make a bet to reveal the lie of true love by destroying Ann’s perfect marriage.”

Rufus Sewell is also on board for the show, which will be directed by Taylor Hackford and executive produced by LaGravenese, Erwin Stoff, Ilene Staple and Wren Arthur.
