Neve Campbell to Star in ABC's Catalina Island Mystery from David E. Kelley and Michael Connelly ...

Neve Campbell will take on double duty in the David E. Kelley/Michael Connelly Cinematic Universe, after landing the lead role in ABCs Avalon and continuing on Netflix's The Lincoln Lawyer (in a recurring role).

The A+E Studios and 20th Television production is set in the main, titular city on Catalina Island, where L.A. Sheriff Department Detective Nicole Nic Searcy* (played by Campbell) manages a small office.

Detective Searcy is thrust into a career-defining mystery that will challenge everything she knows about herself and the island.

Campbells Nic isn't easily intimidated and holds her morals to her. Ironically, Nic's strong moral compass is what pushed her to Catalina in the first place, according to the synopsis, but Nic soon discovers that her valuable detective talents are needed more on Avalon than she expected.

Campbell will reprise her role as Maggie, the title character's first ex-wife, in Season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer, and she is also filming a recurring role in Twisted Metal, a Peacock series starring Anthony Mackie.

*Will characters frequently confuse Nic Searcy with the Justified actor?
