A desperate housewife may return to ABC.

Felicity Huffman – who played Lynette Scavo on the long-running ABC drama Desperate Housewives – is set to headline the American Crime pilot opposite Timothy Hutton (Leverage). Executive produced by Oscar-winning John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), the drama pilot focuses on the murder of a war veteran and the trial that follows.

Huffman will play Barb Skokie, the ex-wife of Russ (Hutton) and mother of the young man who was killed.
