Neve Campbell to lead David E Kelley’s drama series ‘Avalon’

Los Angeles, Aug 19: “Scream” star Neve Campbell has been roped in to headline David E Kelly drama series “Avalon”, set at network ABC.
According to entertainment website Deadline, the show is based on Michael Connelly’s short story.
“Avalon”, which received a straight-to-series order from ABC, takes place in the city of Avalon on Catalina Island, where Los Angeles 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,” the plotline reads.
The show is created and executive produced by Kelley, who wrote the pilot episode, and Connelly.
The project marks Campbell’s second collaboration with Kelley and Connelly after Netflix’s “The Lincoln Lawyer”. She is set to continue on “The Lincoln Lawyer” as a recurring guest star in second season.
“Avalon” hails from A+E Studios and 20th Television. (PTI)
