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.

They’ll be having a deep-dive discussion about the writing and editing of the book, the character developments and plot twists, answering questions from readers, and talking about what comes next. Those who join will also receive, via email, behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and links to add to the reading experience. This live online Crowdcast event will begin at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Tuesday, December 6, 2022–one month after the book’s release. It is free and open to anyone who wants to read the book and join.
