Emily VanCamp to Star in ABC's "Revenge" Pilot

by at . Comments

Former Brothers & Sisters star Emily VanCamp is returning to ABC.

As the female lead in the network's potential new primetime drama, Revenge, VanCamp will potentially be back on the same network she left last fall.

Written by Swingtown creator Mike Kelley and directed by Phillip Noyce, the pilot is called a contemporary re-imagening of The Count of Monte Cristo.

Happy (Van)Camper: Emily may land on another ABC show this fall.

From a female perspective, the show focuses on Emily Thorn (VanCamp), a mysterious young woman who comes to the Hamptons to exact revenge.

People who destroyed her family are in for a world of hurt, basically.

VanCamp, who joined Brothers & Sisters midway through the first season, and who also starred on Everwood, left the family drama early in its fifth.
