Neve Campbell Eyes The Philanthropist


Neve Campbell (“Scream” films) is close to returning to series television with a co-starring role on NBC’s midseason drama “The Philanthropist,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Philanthropist,” from Universal Media Studios, centers on Teddy Rist (James Purefoy), a renegade billionaire who uses his wealth, connections and power to help people in need around the world.

“Party of Five” alumna Campbell will play the wife of his business partner and lifelong friend, Phillip (Jesse Martin), who runs the two billionaires’ charitable foundation and has strong chemistry with Teddy.

Campbell is expected to leave shortly for South Africa where “Philanthropist” is being shot.
