Katherine Heigl's days as Dr. Izzie Stevens on Grey's Anatomy are long gone, but it looks like the former TV starlet is making a return to the small screen. Apparently she'll produce and star in an upcoming HBO movie!
She and her mother Nancy are reportedly co-producing the TV movie, based on the novel The Knitting Circle, reports Pop Eater. Heigl will play a mother who turns to a group of knitters for support after the death of her child.
This will be Heigl's first time back on TV since her departure from Grey's in 2010. She left the show to work on her film career and her departure from the hit program wasn't without a fair share of drama: She panned the show's writers during the 2008-2009 season, took herself out of the Emmy race, and the final straw was apparently when she didn't show up for work one day.
Also in the works for the actress: New Year's Eve, which hits theaters in December, and One for the Money, which will be released in 2012.
