Katherine Heigl is preparing for a return to TV. The 34-year-old actress, who starred in teen show ‘Roswell’ before taking on the role of Dr. Izzy Stevens in ‘Grey’s Anatomy from 2005 to 2010, is reportedly in talks to take on the lead role in a new untitled drama, according to USA Today.
The show is believed to be a procedural drama and networks including NBC and ABC are thought to be interested in the project, which Katherine will both produce and star in.
If Katherine does return to TV, she will most likely have to move back to Los Angeles after she relocated to Utah with her husband Josh Kelley and their two adoptive daughters, Naleigh, four, and Adalaide Marie Hope, 16 months.
Speaking about her new rural life, she explained: “Our house is in the mountains where I can enjoy being a mother and wife. Our dogs love roaming – every time I try to leave they bark and jump on me!”
The star claims her new lifestyle is part of a mission to give her children the best possible upbringing, and she also gave up smoking for the sake of Naleigh’s health and hasn’t look bad since.
She said: “I wanted to quit when Naleigh came into our life. I swore there was no way I was going to smoke with a baby in the house. It’s the one massive vice I’ve had in my life.”
