Is actress Katherine Heigl headed back to TV?
According to sources, Heigl is bringing a possible drama program around to networks to gauge interest. The show would star and be produced by the “Grey’s Anatomy” actress and the pilot would be written by Alexi Hawley, who served as a writer and producer on the ABC show “Castle” and wrote and served as supervising producer for the ABC show “Body of Proof.”
The show's content is currently unknown, but USA Today writer Gary Levin wondered if the program might be a procedural, considering Hawley’s background.
If a network snagged the show, it would most likely be a contender for the 2014-2015 TV season.
Heigl is still best known for her breakout role as Dr. Izzie Stevens on the long-running ABC drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” on which she starred from 2005 to 2010. Before then, she starred on the 1999 TV show “Roswell.”
During and after her time on “Grey’s,” the actress starred in the Judd Apatow comedy “Knocked Up” and the romantic comedies “27 Dresses” and “The Ugly Truth.” Most recently she appeared in the film “The Big Wedding,” which was released this past April, with Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton, among others.
