Neve Campbell to Headline David E. Kelley's ABC Series AVALON

Neve Campbell to Headline David E. Kelley's ABC Series AVALON
"Scream" star Neve Campbell is returning to television with a lead role in the ABC drama series "Avalon", which is based on a short story by Michael Connelly ("Bosch"). The show is created and executive produced by "Big Sky" and "Big Little Lies" creator David E. Kelley. Campbell previously collaborated with Kelley on the first season of Netflix's "The Lincoln Lawyer", which is also based on Connelly's work.

"Avalon" received a straight-to-series order from ABC. The show is set in the city of Avalon, on Catalina Island, where L.A. Sheriff's Department Detective Nicole "Nic" Searcy (Campbell) heads up a small office. Catalina has a local population that serves more than 1 million tourists a year, and each day when the ferries arrive, hundreds of potential new stories enter the island. Detective Searcy is pulled into a career-defining mystery that will challenge everything she knows about herself and the island.

Nic is the lone detective assigned to the Catalina Island substation. Somewhat inscrutable, Nic isn't easily intimidated and holds firm to her morals. Ironically, her strong moral compass is what got her banished to Catalina's biggest city, Avalon. It's a gig no career-driven L.A. cop wants, but Nic soon discovers her valuable detective skills are needed more on Avalon than she could have imagined.

The show will be a part of ABC's 2022-2023 programming slate. Kelley will write the pilot. Showrunner Dana Calvo and Ross Fineman (Fineman Entertainment) are executive producers alongside Barry Jossen & Tana Jamieson (A+E Studios) and Matthew Tinker (DEK Productions). "Avalon" is produced by A+E Studios and 20th Television.

Campbell will also star in the second season of "The Lincoln Lawyer", and is filming a recurring role opposite Anthony Mackie in Peacock's upcoming series "Twisted Metal".
