Former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl, who left the show in 2010 to focus on her film career, is poised to return to the small screen for the first time since.
The Emmy winner has signed on to produce and star in an HBO original movie based on Ann Hood’s best-selling novel The Knitting Circle, according to TV Line.
The semi-autobiographical book centers on a mother mourning the death of her young daughter and battling grief that jeopardizes every aspect of her life.
She begins to find her way back into the world through a knitting circle.
Dirty Sexy Money creator/playwright Craig Wright will pen the adaptation, Wright's first for HBO since his days as a writer for the acclaimed Six Feet Under.
