Katie Holmes Producing Victim Advocate Drama For Cinemax
By Nellie Andreeva
Actress Katie Holmes has teamed with former Sons of Anarchy co-executive producer Mike Daniels for a character-driven action drama, which has been sold to Cinemax. Universal Television, where Daniels is an overall deal, is the studio.
Based on characters conceived together by both Holmes and Daniels, the untitled show follows a victimsí rights advocate who is attacked by a stalker and then returns to the streets of her crime-ridden past to seek justice. Daniels will write the script and will serve as showrunner. He and Holmes executive produce. There are no current plans for Holmes to star.
This marks Universal TVís first project for Cinemax. The studio recently set up a high-profile show at sibling HBO, starring and executive produced by Alec Baldwin.
