Neve Campbell To Star In David E. Kelley’s ABC Drama Series “Avalon,” Based on Michael Connelly’s Short Story

This marks Campbell’s second collaboration with Kelley & Connelly. She starred opposite Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in the first season of Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer. Campbell is set to continue on The Lincoln Lawyer as a recurring guest star in Season 2.

Avalon, which received a straight-to-series order from ABC, takes place in the city of Avalon on Catalina Island, where L.A. 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.
