Emily VanCamp to Star in REVENGE Pilot

Emily VanCamp

Everwood and Brothers & Sisters fans, take note. According to TVLine, Emily VanCamp has snagged the lead in a new drama pilot for ABC. The hour-long project is called REVENGE and is described as a modern version of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo,’ with a female protagonist.

VanCamp will play Emily Thorn, a young woman who goes to the Hamptons to settle the score with those who ruined her family. Phillip Noyce (Salt) will direct the pilot from a script by Mike Kelley (Swingtown).

VanCamp left Brothers & Sisters last fall after being with the drama since midway through the first season. We will next see VanCamp in the CBS Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie Beyond the Blackboard on April 24.
