Felicity Huffman books ABC pilot
A desperate housewife may return to ABC.
Felicity Huffman — who played Lynette Scavo on the long-running ABC drama Desperate Housewives — is set to headline the American Crime pilot opposite Timothy Hutton (Leverage). Executive produced by Oscar-winning John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), the drama pilot focuses on the murder of a war veteran and the trial that follows.
Huffman will play Barb Skokie, the ex-wife of Russ (Hutton) and mother of the young man who was killed.
