Is Ashley Judd really returning to television? That’s what sources are saying. According to Deadline.com, the 42-year-old actress may star in an ABC series called Missing.
The new show is from feature writer Greg Poirier, and Judd will play single mom and former CIA agent, Becca Winstone, who travels around Europe searching for her missing teenage son who disappeared in Italy.
Steve Shill, who won an Emmy for his work on Dexter, will direct many episodes of the show including the first episode. Production will begin on the show at the end of March (tentatively) in Rome, Vienna and Prague, with a fall premiere.
Judd has been on TV before – she was a regular on the NBC drama Sisters with Sela Ward. She also earned an Emmy nomination for her role on the HBO film “Norma Jean & Marilyn” in 1996.
She’s more well known for her roles in films like “Kiss the Girls” and “Double Jeopardy” and because she is the daughter of country music singer Naomi Judd and half-sister of Wynonna Judd.
